The Parent Advisory Council is dedicated to helping our school provide the best education possible for its students. One way you can help the school grow and realize its vision is by actively supporting and participating in your Parent Advisory Council.
Your P.A.C endeavours to:
-provide and improve communication between home and school;
-provide a forum for dialogue between parents and school concerning such things as school philosophy, programs and district and ministry initiatives;
-raise funds for special school; projects and programs;
-advise the school on matters affecting school activities and programs.
All parents or guardians of students attending Peachland Elementary School are entitled to attend our Parent Advisory Council (PAC) meetings which are generally held on the second Tuesday of each month. Meeting and dates are advertised in the school newsletters and on our school calendar. The meetings are very informal and everyone is welcome. Parents, both individually and collectively through the Parent Advisory Council, are the schools' most important source of support. Your active participation is an integral part of our school success. Remember every parent is automatically a member of PAC
The staff and parents at Peachland believe an effective school is one in which parents and the community support the school, participate in school activities, and actively participate in children's learning by sharing skills and talents. To this end we encourage and value the contributions of parents and community members to the education life of students. Assistance is needed in a number of areas, such as:
-in the library
-assisting in the primary and intermediate classrooms (reading to children, listening children read, making learning resources),
-helping with special events (Terry Fox, Sports Day, Concerts),
-helping with school fund-raising activities, and
involvement with Parent Advisory Council.
PARENT PARTICIPATION AT PEACHLAND ELEMENTARY IS NEEDED AND GREATLY APPRECIATED
During the course of the year, various fundraising activities will be conducted. The Parent Advisory Council would appreciate your involvement, as we are always in need of people to assist with these events.
