Mount Benson Elementary School
PAC (Parent Advisory Council)
The Mount Benson Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) invites all parents to attend our meetings. PAC meetings are held the third Tuesday of each month at 7pm in the Library (except December when no meeting is scheduled).
We offer complimentary child minding by Mount Benson students who have completed their babysitting course.
Come learn what's happening in the school and how best the PAC can enrich the school experience for our students.
Mount Benson elementary is currently slated to close on June 30, 2008. To help with the transition, the PAC will attempt to provide as much information as possible leading up to the closure, and also following the closure. (More Closure Information)
Each year the PAC sponsors a bursary for a former student through an endowment fund they have set up. Please see the PAC Bursary webpage for more inforation about apply or giving.
Attending the PAC Meetings provides an opportunity to get an update on what is happening at the school and in the district.
When volunteers are availble the PAC provides services to help keep the school community healthy.
The PAC also fundraises to support the school and the educational experience of the student community. Historically the PAC has assisted with:
We are putting some online games on the website which can help adults and children in improving their computer skills in a fun way, while challenging them in other ways.
Many hands make light work so if you would like to help out with any of the above please come to the next PAC meeting or let someone on the Executive know so we can get you involved.
