Our PAC is a great way to keep up with what is going on in our school and offers opportunities to get involved. As parents in our school, you are automatically part of our PAC group. There are many small ways in which you can help your classroom or the whole school. Come to a meeting and see “what’s up”!
We represent all the families of Mamquam School. Our purpose is to build a positive school community and encourage families to get involved with this community and their child’s education. We hold regular meetings in the evening of every second month. We also plan events and fundraise for much needed equipment for our school. We are also you voice and are happy to address any issues or concerns at our meetings to better communicate between families and staff/administration.
We have already had a Popcorn Day which was a great success. There will be more to come! We have had a “Coffee and Conversation” on October 9 and again on November 25. These informal gatherings take place in the school library at 9:00 am. Coffee provided by Starbucks – be on the lookout for our next one!
Our last meeting was very productive and fun – we heard a presentation from Mrs. Sherlock on the new reporting out to parents for the second term, for grades 4-6. What did that mean? No grades will be given but rather more reflective self-assessment and continual sharing of our children’s progress.
Our next meeting will take place April 12, at 6:30 pm in the school library – come join us and meet the incoming Principal for September, Mr. Ryan Massey, and hear a presentation about the new math teaching happening in the intermediate classrooms.
If you are looking to get involved by helping with any activity, please contact any Executive member – they can lead you in the right direction!
