Parent Advisory Council
The Parent Advisory Council strives to be a welcoming place where care givers can gain information and ask questions regarding their child's school life. A staff presentation and a coffee/conversation time are a part of each meeting. All are welcome to attend. The PAC meets every 2nd month on a Monday night. Dates are posted on the school calendar.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the purpose of PAC?
The PAC meets every two months to hear what is happening at the school, discuss parents’ issues/concerns, and provide advice to the administration as requested in order to foster and grow a strong relationship between the school and parents.
If I come to a PAC meeting, do I have to volunteer or sign up to help with events?
Absolutely not! If you want to volunteer, there are opportunities to do that, however, if you simply want to attend the PAC meetings to be better informed, you are more than welcome, and you are encouraged to attend.
If I have a question or concern, how do I get it added to the agenda?
The agenda is set collaboratively between the administration and the PAC executive. We are open to hearing what concerns or topics you would like to discuss. If you have something to add, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The agenda is set one week prior to the meeting and posted on the web page.
Why should I come to a PAC meeting?
There are so many reasons to come! You will feel more informed about what is going on at the school, be more connected with the administration, and other parents, and have an opportunity to provide your opinions and advice!
I want to volunteer at the school; how do I get involved?
Sheri Schmidtke is coordinating the volunteers for several events throughout the year. You can email the PAC at email@example.com to let her know of your interest in being involved. Sheri will in turn get in contact with you.
What happens at the PAC meetings?
At each meeting, we have a member of the staff give a topical presentation. We then have an update and report from the administration, where they let us know all that is happening at the school and ask for advice if needed. We then have a time of discussing concerns or questions that the parents have (which have been identified and added to the agenda prior to the meeting). After the business portion of the meeting is over, we have a short fellowship time.
