Parent Advisory Council (PAC)
WHO ARE WE?
All Lee parents and guardians are automatically members of the Lee Parents Advisory Council (PAC). Our PAC Executives are elected each June for the following school year and represents our PAC with regards to fundraising activities and spending allotments, but all our Lee Parents can also play a role by providing their input and volunteering their time when the opportunity arises.
WHAT DO WE DO?
Most importantly, we provide a voice for the parent community in our school. We provide feedback and help facilitate communication with the school regarding whatever is happening at Lee. It benefits both you and your child to be involved in their education. Parents’ voices are of tremendous value to their school.
With the assistance of our Lee families, each year the PAC is able to fund many essential items for the school including the following:
- Classroom supplies such as arts and crafts materials, stationary and household items, books and special event items.
- Additional funding for school administration, library, gym/sports, resource, ESL, and band/music.
- Wishlist items such as classroom projectors, filtered water stations, furniture, mobile sound system, primary play table, library carts, sports jerseys, and iPads.
- Allotments for class field trips, assisting with transportation and/or activity fees.
- Special guest speakers and arts residencies.
Each school year, the PAC organizes a variety of fundraising activities such as the Purdy’s Winter Fundraiser, West Coast Seeds, and Hot Lunch Program, plus our annual Prowl-A-Thon.
Our popular Hot Lunch program is offered 2-3 times per month this school year with items available for pre-order from vendors such as; Subway, Booster Juice, Pizza, West Coast Poke, and Fukuroku Sushi. The proceeds from these activities fund many of the items listed above for the benefit of all our students at Lee.
