Fall Upcoming PAC MEETING DATES:

Monday, Sept. 18, 2017 – if you are interested in becoming the Chair, the Secretary or helping the PAC Executive in any way, please contact us!

All meetings are held in the library on the second floor, unless otherwise noted, from 7 pm to 8:30 pm.  Sometimes we offer special speakers or short workshops.  We also try our best to offer translation, especially for parents who speak Mandarin. Our highlight event, is a Multicultural Fair held in February, which had 12 countries participate in last year and needs so many volunteers to take place.  Think food, traditional costumes, typical cultural and special events.
A typical PAC meeting includes reports from the Principal, Teacher Rep, Student Council Rep, Music Rep, Trek Rep, Gold Rep, Mini School Rep, PAC business, fundraising, special events and any new business.  All parents are welcome to attend, provide feedback and to volunteer.

Tips for parents that are new to our Parent Advisory Committee

Linda and Dave

Graduating President Linda Fong with departing Principal Dave Derpak

Every PW parent is automatically a member of the PW PAC. The purpose of the PW PAC is to support, encourage and improve the quality of education and the well-being of all students at PW. We are hoping to work closely together with the Mini School, the Trek Program and the Music Society, as well as any other special interest group at school.

We invite all parents to attend PAC meetings and to get involved – we guarantee that you will make meaningful connections within the parent community and participate in decision-making that will benefit your child.

The Final PAC Meeting and AGM of 2016/2017 school year.We are also hoping that every parent supports the PAC with a donation of the recommended amount of $100.  This “Direct Donation” at the beginning of the year is replacing all the little fundraisers that many elementary parents hold each year – no more bake sales, spring fairs, book sales or selling of products.

Simply write a cheque of any amount you would like to – anything over $25 you receive a receipt for your taxes – and we are good to go.  If you want to know how the money is spent, please see our Donor Page, our Fundraising Page and come to the next PAC Meeting in the fall of 2017!

Most importantly, the PAC newsletter and sign up is completely different than signing up to the school e-mail list.  Because of the Can-Spam rules, we need to have you sign up directly to our mail chimp newsletter from this website or from Facebook.

We will also be posting the newsletters on our website, so you can read past editions.

Important Request:

We still need a new PAC Chair, preferably someone who has had some experience in PAC and who has flexible hours at work

We also need a new secretary – training available.  Take minutes at meetings and pass them along.

Each fall, we also need a new group of translators who are fluent in Mandarin.

We are also open to “Members at Large” joining our PAC Executive – the more the merrier!
