Burnaby Mountain Pac meeting September 12 2016
Called to Order at 7:17
Welcome – Dave Dye. Introductions of parents attending and last year’s PAC members attending occurred. Fundraising isn’t done as much by the PAC because we receive a large gaming grant from the government each year.
Minutes – will come out next month (from June2016) to be approved next month.
Treasurer. Karen Sciarretta. Intent of report is to tell how much we expect to spend and how much remains to be spent and how much has been spent. Page is divided into two different sections: Main account which comes from parent donations. Gaming grant comes from the government. The amount depends on the number of students. They pay a certain amount per student. With this money we support a teachers wish list and club requests. Motion to adopt the treasurer’s report for September seconded and passed.
