Dear Vancouver College Families:
The Vancouver College Parents Association (VCPA) would like to extend a warm welcome to new and returning families.
We are excited about the upcoming year and all that we will achieve together working with staff, faculty and administration.
Thanks to our collective efforts on various projects, events, and activities, we raised over $345,000 last year, each dollar benefiting our sons this year and into the future.
The primary role of the VCPA is to encourage participation in school activities by all VC families, raise funds for projects and initiatives as determined by the school's administration, as well as promote and assist with social justice activities in order to provide the opportunity for students to put their Catholic faith in action. The VCPA has a legacy of serving the needs of the students, enriching their educational experience via successful fundraising, community building, and outreach events.
We encourage all Vancouver College families to fully participate in building our faith and learning community, to the benefit of all our sons. The ON Volunteers system is the key tool through which we as parents are able to sign up to work on the various VC projects, activities, and events.
Donna Salahub, our Parent Participation Program Coordinator on the VCPA has put together instructions on how to log into the On Volunteers system. Please sign in as soon as possible to see the various available roles.
As we start the school year with Welcome Back Barbecues and Parent Orientation Sessions, we extend a special invitation to all parents to attend our three major fundraising events.
Please mark your calendars for:
- Finnegan Ball - Saturday November 2, 2019
- Mothers' Christmas Tea - Wednesday December 4, 2019
- Mayfair -May 9, 2020
The VCPA is looking forward to the 2019/2020 school year. This year we continue to support Vancouver College's Our Next Century Campaign. By working together we will continue the tradition of excellence that has been established at Vancouver College by the families who came before us. We look forward to seeing many new as well as familiar faces at our VCPA events this year.
Wishing you and your children a year full of growth, faith, and learning!
Michele Morandini on behalf of the VCPA
