PAC MEETINGS

What is the Parent Advisory Council (PAC)?

The PAC is similar but different from elementary PTO’s.  It is a meeting opportunity for me as the principal to talk with parents, in person, one on one, to discuss school operations and functions. It is a  chance for you as parents to hear proposals, voice ideas, suggestions and concerns.  There are no fund raising opportunities associated with the PAC.  I view it as an open line of  communication that you don’t receive through written forms of communication.  In summary, it’s an opportunity for you to be heard. - Gus Harju

Dates of Upcoming PAC Meeting

March 24
April 21
May 12

All meetings are held at 7:00 PM at Mill Creek Middle School except for April which will be held at the high school.
