Parents' Auxiliary

How can parents get involved at St. Patrick's Elementary School?

Parents are an integral part of the parish and school community and are encouraged to take part in the activities of the school. Parents provide the leadership needed for special activities, fund-raisers, socials and other community building events. St. Patrick's School has an active Parents' Auxiliary (PAC) which functions under the direction of the School Council. A parent liaison representative facilitates communication between the two organizations. Meetings are held once a month and are open the general school community.

What is the purpose of the Parents' Auxiliary Council?

The purpose is to assist the Principal and School Council in meeting the needs of the school community. We meet these needs on three levels: financial, social and educational.

Who can belong to the Parents' Auxiliary Council?

Anyone who is a parent or guardian of a student at the school can belong to the Parents' Auxiliary. The PAC is parent/guardian organized and managed.

What does the Parents' Auxiliary do?

We organize fund-raisers such as the Hot Lunch on Thursdays, Spirit Days and other fund-raising events to provide financial assistance for school programs, equipment and recreational activities. We stage social events such as the Fall Dance and the Fun Fair.

Testimonials
When I came to St. Patrick's I was a very shy girl; it was difficult for me to leave my mother’s safe and loving arms. St. Patrick's, especially the teachers, helped me with this. Now that I’m in grade seven I look back and realize there was never once that I felt ignored or uncared for. I will never forget St. Patrick's and what it did for me.

At St. Patrick’s we’ve always been encouraged to participate in school sports and clubs. It is a loving place where we are all accepted for who we are. Leaving the St. Patrick’s community is going to be very hard. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my experience here and hopefully you will too!

St. Patrick’s School has opened my mind to learn new things and to meet new people. St. Patrick’s is like family; all the people have great spirit and all the teachers are like second parents. The teachers are so understanding that I feel confident asking a question if I don’t understand something. My relationship with God has become stronger since the first day I came to St. Patrick’s.
