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.

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.
