Parent Advisory Council

The Parent Advisory Council strives to be a welcoming place where care givers can gain information and ask questions regarding their child's school life. A staff presentation and conversation time are a part of each meeting. All are welcome to attend.

Dates are posted on the school calendar as well as below.

Information and invitation for PAC meetings will be sent to MBCI Parents/Guardians in our Upcoming email.  The format for our meetings will be Zoom and In person, as we are able.  Each PAC meeting includes a School Report and opportunity for questions with our Principal.  

Meetings start at 7:00 pm and include a short message with prayer, school update with Principal, Plugged In update and then the feature topic with a speaker(s). Discussion and questions always encouraged.
