For the Week of Oct 2, 2023
Working together; succeeding together.
Over the next few weeks we will be showcasing different parts of Edsby for our families. Edsby i s about as complex as Facebook to operate and navigate within, so if you can do facebook or Instagram, you can do Edsby. We will journey together to ensure that you are as up-to-date as possible on the progress of your child and the goings on at PPCS.
Episode 2: Messages
This is found on the top left side of your Edsby home page. This is a fast, reliable, and private pathway of communication between parents and teachers. Teachers may say out broadcasts to groups of parents or even a whole class. The greatest feature of messages is that when a parent responds to a broadcast, it becomes a private message between the parent and the teacher.
Edsby allows you to check on your child's current progress in their classes. Check our family handbook (link below) for a key to the completion codes that you will see in Edsby.
If you are having trouble accessing Edsby for any reason, contact the school and we will do our best to problem-solve with you.
Bear Bites is Back!
Due to increases in grocery prices, we will have to increase the cost of our meals to $5.00 from $4.00, we thank you in advance for your understanding.
We will once again be running the punch card program but will be setting up a dollar-for-dollar card. You can load any amount (up to $100) that you want on a punch card. Anyone who has leftover punch cards will be notified and the value will be transferred to a new punch card. We also hope to have a digital portal set up where parents can check on how much money they have left on their child's card. Thank you for your patience as we work through this process.

Art Club Needs Stuff for Projects
Does anyone have gift cards that they no longer use or that aren’t reloadable like Tim Hortons, Best Buy etc. or any cards like that that don’t have personal information on them? If so could art club have them for a project? I have several projects in mind that use cards..I could make do with cardboard but doesn’t work as well! Also old spray bottles like Windex etc.

Volunteers and Athletes of the Month
Volunteer of the month.
Mrs Patchin gets the nod this month for holding down the fort in the canteen on Friday night. She often helps out by picking up supplies and serving food throughout our athletic events and her help is surely appreciated. Thank you for all you do for Bears Athletics.
Athlete of the month
Harley Holinaty has made a smooth transition to the high school sporting end. She has demonstrated a solid base of volleyball skills and an effort level that shows she is a gamer. She will be one to keep an eye on as she gains experience.
Athlete of the month
Marty Salmond has been ripping serves and making some good decisions while setting for her team. Marty appears very positive on the court and seems like she is having a lot of fun while playing which is the goal we have for all of our athletes. Great job in September Marty.
Check Your Punch Card Balance
Once you click the link below and find your child's account number, you will see a number to the left of their account number (i.e. 17). That number will not change, so you only have to remember that number going forward.
We hope that this will help our families.
