About Watson PAC

Watson Elementary Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is formed to be a voice of the parents to build communication and connection between home and school to support the well-being and growth of our students. Our chief mandate is to foster the social, emotional, intellectual, and physical well-being of children through the promotion of effective communication and co-operative participation between members of the home, the school, and the community.

The PAC is comprised of parent volunteers who have been elected as executives and committee coordinators, as well as all parents and guardians of registered students. We encourage all parents and guardians to attend PAC meetings to stay informed, get a chance to share your ideas, find out about volunteer opportunities, and support our great school!

If you have any questions please feel free to email a PAC Executive (listed above), or drop a note at the office addressed to PAC.

Volunteer with the PAC:

There are a variety of ways to volunteer with the PAC with many events and activities happening throughout the school year. We are always in need of helping hands when it comes to Hot Lunch, events, and fundraisers.

Upcoming volunteer opportunities will be announced during monthly PAC meetings, as well as shared via our Facebook page.

All volunteers within the school should have a completed Criminal Record Check on file with the school. Please contact the office about completing this free application.



PAC fundraising efforts have enriched our school by assisting with the purchase of playground equipment, bookshelves, gym equipment, musical instruments, and much more! Our fundraising efforts also contribute to Field Trip Funding; this drastically reduced the cost of each field trip bus ride to be more manageable for families. With your help, we'd like to continue to provide Watson Elementary with the best tools/equipment/funding needed the further the education of our children. 

There will be multiple fundraising opportunities all throughout the school year to support a variety of PAC initiatives, as well as school-based initiatives like the grade 5 camping trip, grade 3 Kindness Project, and Cops for Cancer.

It should be noted that some fundraisers will have purchasing through the MunchaLunch website, while some will have purchasing through a vendors website, and some may have purchasing through cash to the school. There is this inconsistency as different vendors/programs have different methods for handling funds. We suggest reading fundraising notices carefully for instructions.

Munch A Lunch



All orders from Hot Lunch and Treat Days are done using the MunchaLunch website. This is an outsourced platform to help streamline orders and the collection of payments.

If you are paying for your order by cash/cheque, we require that you clearly identify the order , child's name, teacher's name, along with payment in a sealed envelope to be dropped off to the PAC mailbox located at the office. If payment is not received before the deadline, your order will be canceled. We recommend completing your online order with card payment to avoid this. If you would like to pre-pay via cash/cheque/e-transfer, PAC has the ability to add a credit to your MunchaLunch profile for ease of ordering, contact PAC to do so watson-pac@sd33.bc.ca 

If your child is absent on the day of Hot Lunch you will be able to pick up the lunch from your child's teacher, from their classroom after 12:00pm. Unfortunately, our hot lunch volunteers are unable to accommodate requests to have hot lunch orders set aside at the office. Requests to do so in the past has created confusion for parent volunteers, so all orders will be delivered to the classroom teachers for distribution. Alternatively, if your child is absent, you may contact PAC to allow the order to be donated to the lunch program for another student to enjoy. Treat Day orders will be ready for pick up at the end of the day. Orders due to absence will not be reimbursed.
