Not sure what to do? Start by joining the PAC at your child/children’s school. PAC, which stands for Parent Advisory Council is a parent volunteer group working together with the common goal of supporting and creating a better education in your school district. Meetings take place once every couple of months, about an hour long. All parents are welcome to attend.
By showing up you get to voice your concerns and give inputs, connect with other parents and become knowledgeable in all school activities and events. From there you can see how you fit into the school and volunteer as your interest suits.
Our council tackles fundraising events which raise money for playground and school equipment, classroom allotments, partner in reading program, books for the library, fieldtrips, and so much more! Parent’s involvement is hugely important to our school and its students and our community. In fact, you’ll likely find a PAC member at almost every school event.
Becoming a PAC member allows me to be a part of the school and a bigger part in my son’s life. My son and nephew LOVE seeing me around their school and classroom; it really makes them feel special. I get to know all their friends and see how they interact in a different environment. The best part is knowing that I’m making a difference.
There’s always a position for parent volunteers. We’re really one of the most efficient unpaid organizations!
Get involve and help secure a successful future for your children!
