PAC Meeting September 11, 2018

 Gaming Grant: approx. $9000 equates to $20 per student

 Direct Appeal: only other source of funding, approx. $4000 per year on average.  Have done a DA for the past 3 years.

 School Cash Online: new format to pay all school fees and contribute and donate to the school. This would be the source for making contributions to a DA.

How can we generate more interest for parents to attend regular monthly PAC meetings this year?

Speakers

PAC meetings are a way to stay informed from the principal each month

Communicate with other parents in the school

Stay connected to what is going on in the school, upcoming events, changes activities, staffing  

PAC is a support to the teachers and school as well as students.

No Fundraising or volunteering is required

In the past PAC has contributed and funded many different initiatives and programs:

Scholarships and grants
Clubs
Athletic equipment
