Members of the Parent Advisory Council
All parents or legal guardians of students registered at Glenrosa Elementary School are voting members of the PAC.
Our Parent Advisory Council (PAC) consists of every parent or guardian of a student attending Glenrosa Elementary School. An executive board is elected by the membership at the May Annual General Meeting and the executive plans and organizes many activities which take place throughout the school year. Some of these include the barbeque in September, weekly lunches for students and fundraising. The PAC meets on a monthly basis, typically the second Tuesday of each month, with the 1st meeting taking place on September 12, 2017 at 6:30 p.m.
Watch the monthly newsletter for information on fundraising opportunities. PAC maintains a modest Parenting Library, which is available to all parents. In the interest of efficiency, PAC sends information home in the school’s monthly newsletter. Be sure to check this out! Help is always welcomed and PAC meetings are a great place to bring questions and suggestions. Administration and staff and other interested community members are non-voting members of the PAC.
