Dr. A.R. Lord Elementary and Tillicum Annex families hosted the annual Manure Sale Fundraiser on Saturday, April 2nd 2022. It was a great turnout and a lot of hard work went into the event to raise funds for the Parent Advisory Council in support of our schools. A portion of the proceeds will also go towards the grade 7 year end field trip. It was great to see so many supporters who came out to volunteer and neighbors who purchased the composted antibiotic and hormone free steer manure from Hopcott Farms. The Hastings Community Association also continues to be a great partner in support of this event.
We are look forward to seeing the beautiful vegetable gardens, flowers and lawns in the neighborhood that will grow lush over the season ahead, but even more importantly, thankful for the reconnections within our community that will bloom once again.
A small amount of bagged manure is still for sale for a limited over the next few days. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.

During the recent February 2022 Parent Advisory Council Meeting, a motion was passed to support A.R. Lord Elementary to increase IT resources for student learning. A.R. Lord currently has 48 iPads that are shared amongst classes and an additional 10 iPads will now be purchased through a 50:50 cost share model between the PAC and school. Having dedicated iPads for both upstairs and downstairs classes, will allow for greater access for teachers to incorporate these tools into their curriculum.
PAC monies are raised through the ongoing fundraising efforts with a goal of supporting student education. We thank all for their support and pitching in for our most recent fundraisers:
