A Message from Dr. A.R. Lord PAC
Dear Parents and Families,
Every family connected to A. R. Lord Elementary School is part of our school’s community. How that community takes care of its members is up to all of us! Each parent or guardian of a student enrolled at A. R. Lord Elementary School is automatically part of our school's PAC. As soon as your child is part of the school, you are part of the PAC.
What is a PAC?
PAC stands for Parent Advisory Council. PAC is the officially recognized collective voice of parents of their school. PACs are the forum within each school community to discuss matters affecting your school and the education of your children. A PAC may advise the school board, the principal and staff of the school respecting any matter relating to the school.
Parents are encouraged and invited to bring forth issues, suggestions, or concerns relating to the needs of your school community.
These issues can be brought forth by:
• contacting a PAC executive member directly • sending a letter to the school addressed to the PAC executive • attending a PAC meeting
Dr. A. R. Lord Elementary School's PAC would like to extend an invitation to you as parents and guardians to get involved with your school. Being an active part of the PAC is a wonderful opportunity to meet other parents, become part of a great school community and make a difference to the quality of your children’s education. Regular PAC meetings are held once per month, at 6:30pm in the school library. Free child minding is available on site during meeting times. All parent/guardians are welcome to attend any PAC meeting.
