Welcome back! September is the time for seeing old friends and making new ones, and one of the ways that parents can get in on the action is by joining the Parent Advisory Committee (PAC)!
Our first meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 21, in the Learning Commons (the library) at 7pm. There will be refreshments and some really cool people to meet, such as the PAC executive, some very friendly parents, our awesome new Principal, Pedro DaSilva, and quite possibly some teachers.The first meeting is the time where we get to know one another, talk about what we can expect from the upcoming year, ask and answer questions, and hear from Pedro what is happening at John Oliver this term.
The PAC allows parents to get involved and have a say in their children’s school experience. We share concerns, become educated, volunteer at school events, and decide how gaming grant money will be spent within the school. Everyone is welcome to join so if you want to know what’s going on at John Oliver, please come to our PAC meetings or sign up for the PAC’s emails so you can stay informed.
