PARENT ADVISORY COUNCIL

The École Christine Morrison Advisory Council performs a wide variety of functions for the benefit of our students. The council also provides a forum for communication between the home and the school so that parents and educators work as partners in the education of our students. All parents and guardians of children attending École Christine Morrison are members of the council.

General membership meetings are usually held once a month. These monthly meetings provide a forum for discussion of educational policies and issues, programs and school events; an opportunity to hear items and presentations of interest; and, a time and place to meet with other parents who share common goals.

The Executive PAC members meet one additional time each month. This hard-working and enthusiastic group is responsible for many of the “funtastic” activities we have enjoyed in our school history, e.g. craft fair, winter carnival, hot lunches, and much, much more! Please consider joining our PAC. For the latest news from our PAC click on the link in the right hand column. Links to email members are listed below.
