The Hastings PAC organizes, supports and runs several events during the course of the school year.

Family Bingo Night

Doors open at 6pm. Bingo starts at 6.15pm

Join is for a family night of bingo fun! Pizza will be available, along with other refreshments - so you can take a night off from making dinner!

Order Forms

Bingo cards, food orders, and combo packages can be purchased in advance for easy pick up on the night. Watch for order forms coming home in your child’s backpack this week - otherwise you can CLICK HERE for the form, or pick one up at the school office. Please submit forms by Thursday, February 13th to the office, or to your child’s teacher.

Volunteer Call Out

Volunteers are needed for set-up, door pick-ups/sales, food table, popcorn sales, prize table, and clean-up. If we get enough volunteers, then short shifts would be available so that everyone can also play bingo for part of the evening.

Planning committee call out

This is the PAC's biggest event of the year, so many hands are needed to make it a success.

CALLING ALL PARENTS! We are in need of volunteers to help plan a specific area of the Spring Fair. This is an annual family event that brings together not only the school community, but the larger Hastings-Sunrise community. This is the PAC's biggest fundraiser of the year and funds raised in the past have gone towards STEM, Arts, and Physical Education enhancements benefiting all Hastings students.

We have broken it down into the following committees. Much of the work can be done prior to the fair. We encourage parents and guardians to take on something and invite a couple of friends to help you. If we start early, spread out the work, its not a lot for anyone. Please review the list and let us know which committee you'd like to join and if you have friends to help or if you need to be put with a team. We can provide you with a list of Pre-fair & On the Day duties, plus notes from last year to get you started. If you yourself cannot join a committee, please spread the word and recruit friends you think would like to take it on.
