In recent years the Whiteside PAC has noted that attendance at the Meet the Teacher picnic in September has declined and the PAC is looking for a way to encourage more families to attend.  Therefore this year the PAC is applying for a Neighbourhood Celebration Grant from the City of Richmond which can be used to fund an event for our school and neighbourhood community.  The PAC would like to use this grant to host the Meet the Teacher picnic on September 23rd. The funds would be used to provide free food (hot dogs / veggie dogs, chips, drinks, veggies) for students and families who attend.  The event would be held in conjunction with the school's Meet the Teacher event and would provide families not only an opportunity to visit with teachers but also to meet and socialize with other families at the school.  

We're seeking feedback from families to see if this would encourage you to attend. Please let us know by answering the following questions.

Question Title

* 1. Will you attend the Meet the Teacher Picnic?

Question Title

* 2. If the event is free we would expect more people to attend. Would you volunteer to help?

Question Title

* 3. Due to the small facilities available for food preparation the PAC would provide hot dogs and other easily prepared foods.  Would you prefer a potluck style event?
