CRE PAC Updates Nov 2013


Thank you to everyone that took time to complete the PAC opinion survey and congratulations to the Woodward family, winners of a pair of student season tickets to the Coquitlam Express.


Campbell’s Soup Labels for Education

A friendly reminder that Coquitlam River participates in the Campbell’s labels for education program.  All labels are exchanged for points, which in turn can be used to “purchase” various items, including school supplies and equipment.  Please bring in your labels and drop them off in our Campbell’s bin, located in the front foyer.  Check out this link for more information.



Scholastic Book Fair Schedule

Our annual Scholastic Book Fair schedule has been finalized as follows:

All profits of the fair will go directly to our school library.  There will be a large variety of books for adults, teens, young readers and even preschoolers, definitely something for everyone.  We will accept cash, debit, Mastercard, Visa and cheques payable to CRE PAC.   There is still a need for volunteers to assist please contact Susan at 604 612 3849 or by email if you are able to help out.


Coquitlam Express Hockey Fundraising Game   

We hope that you will be able to join us on Friday, November 29th at the Poirier Sport and Leisure Centre in Coquitlam.  If you haven’t ordered your tickets yet, please do so as soon as possible. 

Another fun aspect of the evening is the Frisbee toss. Frisbees are sold at a cost of 1 for $2 or 3 for $5, during the second intermission everyone is invited to throw their Frisbee onto the ice. The Frisbee that lands closes to the target wins a prize. All proceeds are given to CRE.  We will require parents to sell Frisbees and also have 4-5 student skaters on the ice to pick them up after the toss.  Please contact Susan if you are able to assist.  604 612 3849 or
