Mission and Purpose of DL PAC
The Ecole Dorothy Lynas Elementary Parent Advisory Council (PAC) supports the Dorothy Lynas school community of families, teachers, and school administration by encouraging parent-guardian involvement in school activities. There are PACs at every school in BC, and as a parent-guardian of a child at Dorothy Lynas, you are a member of PAC!
Our PAC activities include advising the school administration on school community matters, hosting spirit events and activities, providing parent education, and fundraising. Fundraising activities provide additional monetary support for initiatives including social emotional learning, common space improvements, teacher expense reimbursement, former student scholarships, field trips, emergency response supplies, and to provide financial assistance to families for designated activities.
There are many ways to become involved in PAC, ranging from volunteering in a role on our committee, to running a fundraiser, to volunteering for an event or fun food days. There are also regular virtual PAC meetings where we hear updates from our Principal and PAC representatives. All are welcome at these meetings, which are a great way to get to know what is happening and to get to know the larger school community.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING, GETTING INVOLVED, OR HAVE QUESTIONS, PLEASE CONTACT US AT: [email protected]
