The PAC needs You!
We Need You!
Our PAC is an active group that has accomplished many things for the school and students. However, to maintain our programs and school support we need new volunteers with fresh energy and new ideas.
Please consider volunteering.
The PAC welcomes help for any our initiatives. We recognize that we are all busy parents and welcome as much or little time as you can contribute. Any time you can give is very much appreciated and makes a difference for our school and children.
All elected positions will be open for re-election at the PAC AGM on Tuesday, May 24. We encourage you to come out to learn more about our volunteer opportunities.
Below is a list of elected positions that currently have no nominees (will be vacant). Please consider whether you might be able to help.
Fundraising Coordinator (elected position)
The Fundraising Coordinator is in charge of coordinating and overseeing fundraising projects such as the Entertainment Book sales, Family Photo Night, Winter Bake Sale, Sports Day Concession and any other fundraiser they and the PAC decide upon. This position would suit someone with a passion for fundraising, teamwork and with good organizational skills. This position will be elected at our AGM as per our bylaws.
We are also looking for specific fundraising campaign team leads. These positions are perfect for volunteers who want to commit to a smaller or finite job.
Treasurer (elected position)
The Treasurer is responsible for the financial tracking, payments, reconciliation and managing of the PAC bank and electronic payment accounts, and reconciliation of the PAC annual budget. This position is best co-chaired. Experience in accounting or book keeping is required. This position will be elected at our AGM as per our bylaws.
Traffic Safety Coordinator (elected position)
Our children’s safety when arriving and leaving school is of the utmost importance. By addressing traffic safety, this volunteer position helps keep our kids safe and helps keep our parents calm too! The Traffic Safety Coordinator organizes the volunteers who help with crosswalk duty and or parking lot duty on weekday mornings or afternoons. This does not require a large time commitment (you can choose as many or few shifts as you like) and no prior experience is required. This position will be elected at our AGM as per our bylaws.
We are also always in need of Traffic Safety Team Members. Team members are not an elected position and can involve as little as one shift per week.
After School Programs Co-coordinator (elected position)
The PAC After School Programs are a very popular and successful PAC initiative. Since our programming has grown over the last couple of years, we are looking for a 2nd and even 3rd volunteer. We recommend that 2 or more people do this position together. This position will be elected at our AGM as per our bylaws.
Website Manager (elected position)
The Website Co-Manager helps keep our PAC website up to date. The PAC website is used to communicate to the parents, be a go-to place to find out about the PAC, and to support the many PAC activities such as afterschool activity registration, event ticket sales and volunteer sign up. Currently, we have one nominee but need a second to help make sure the latest news updates are posted on the website in a timely manner. This position will be elected at our AGM as per our bylaws.
