The Maquinna PAC is an amazing group of parent volunteers who go the distance in helping to support not just their own child's educational experience, but that of all students at Maquinna.  They fundraise and help support the school in accomplishing our goals for the year.  They further help to shape the vision and direction a school takes as well as they assist in providing special resources for classroom teachers.  The Maquinna PAC is a committed group of parents who are truly a valued and dedicated partner in their child(ren)'s education.  Any parent of a child at Maquinna is automatically a member of Maquinna PAC.  The Executive Committee is always looking for new members who are interested in becoming involved in the school.   

Why you should come to PAC meetings:

  1.   It is a great way to meet new friends.  Socialize with other parents and staff and
      feel connected to the school culture.
  2.   Learn new information that you may not normally have ready access to.
  3.   Let your voice be heard... have some input... share some ideas about schooling
      and the key issues at our school. The Pac has writes in the school act that allows us to be heard. We can also work with Vancouver DPAC on issues that are of concern to the school system in general. 
  4.   Enhance your child's educational experience.
  5.   Find out how you can become involved in helping or running school events.
