We need your help!
Our Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is a key part of the Dorothy Lynas community that relies on the generous volunteer contributions from parents to support a number of important fundraising programs. The proceeds from these programs enable the school to purchase items such as home reading books, computers/iPads, projectors, sports equipment and musical equipment.
These programs won’t happen without the support of our parent community!
There are countless opportunities, both big and small, and many opportunities can be done from home and outside of school hours.
You can learn more by:
- Joining us at our next PAC meeting on Monday September 16th at 7:00pm in the multipurpose room
- Checking out our PAC website and volunteer page at http://dorothylynas.com/useful-info/get-involved/
- Contacting us at email@example.com
Please join us for the first Parent Advisory Council (PAC) meeting of the year. All parents and grandparents welcome. Come meet the PAC executive and the school administrators and learn about upcoming events and what’s new at Dorothy Lynas this year. Learn about where your PAC dollars will be going this year.
We will meet in the multipurpose room at 7:00 pm on Monday, September 16, light refreshments will be served. Come meet other parents, staff and administrators. We can’t wait to see you, and the meeting will end at 8:00.
Let’s rally to help one of our own. Lisa Williams recently lost her home and suffered burns to her body. Her son is a Dorothy Lynas Dragon and we know they could both use our support. A Go Fund Me account has been set up and we encourage our families to help out in any way they can.
Let’s show our support.
