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.

The pandemic keeps us from meeting in person for the time being, so meetings are happening via Zoom with the link available in Upcoming (school e-newsletter) prior to each meeting.

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.
