This year’s PAC AGM is on June 13 via Teams at 6:15pm. We will be electing next year’s council and we are hoping to bring in some new volunteers to join our collaborative team!

All of the council positions need to be filled this year: president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, emergency preparedness rep, SPEAC rep, fundraiser, hot-lunch coordinator and some members at large. We meet virtually, once a month on the second Tuesday.

The positions that we are most in need of are treasurer, fundraiser and hot lunch coordinator. The treasurer does the council’s book-keeping, tracks spending and funds raised and collected, writes out payments, and reports to the council each month. The fundraiser schedules, coordinates and helps run the various fundraising events during the school year, along with other volunteers. Many of these events are repeats of ones that have been done in previous years, and there is a template to follow to organize those.

The hot-lunch coordinator organizes the twice-a-month lunch events, which have currently been split between Pizza Hut and Whitespot. This person will need to have or get their Serving it Right certificate, and be available on the hot lunch days (usually Fridays) to be at the school to help receive the food and distribute it to the classes.
