Many of our PAC members as well as volunteer parents move on to the middle school each year in September which means there are lots of opportunities to get involved! Can you help?
If you have a desire to know more of what goes on at the school and to be part of the PAC check us out. There are many areas that you can help with. Opportunities range from taking notes in meetings, planning to organizing fun night, working on/at the Christmas Tea & Raffle, organize the teachers luncheon and so much more. There is something for everyone.
You can submit your name for nomination up until the AGM in June were we will be voting in the new PAC members for next year. If you are interested or have more questions please contact Jacqui Jack (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Susan Drake (email@example.com).
