What are your values?
The main themes that emerged are that parents value community building opportunities, desire more outreach to parents, and would like to advocate for arts, music and library programs. Other priorities include teacher support and student extra curricular education.
Parents would like to see money fundraised go towards enhanced learning opportunities for students such as guest speakers, special activities and educational field trips. There was also a strong desire to devote funds towards physical education programs for all ages as well as towards music, arts/culture and life skills programming. Upgrading technology and supporting the library were also highlighted.
Over the coming months, your PAC executives will keep these priorities in mind when we recommend items to fund and finalize our fundraising plans. Our goal is to ensure that as much as possible our efforts and funds benefit the entire school. You can help us by passing along suggestions for possible speakers, extra curricular opportunities or special activities that you are aware of, as well as any additional input. If anyone would like to lead a parent speakers committee, to find speakers and collaborate with other groups to share resources, that would also be very helpful.
We will also be looking for volunteers to help with new events that we are planning to bring our community together. Look for details about an upcoming movie night and pancake breakfast in the weekly newsletter.
Thanks for helping to make our school and community so amazing !
