Due to the global COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, the PAC will no longer be holding in person meetings in the school library. We will only be conductiong our PAC meetings via teleconferences and/or video conferences. It is the best way to still keep our community informed of PAC business while mitigating the risks associated with in-person meetings.
What is the PAC?
The School Act gives parents the right, through our Parent Advisory Council (PAC), to provide feedback and discuss matters that affect the education of our children. The PAC is a forum and the collective voice of parents at Cove Cliff Elementary school.
What does the PAC do?
The PAC strives to represent the diversity within our community and contribute to the benefit of all students by providing opportunities to educate and inform parents about our school and openly discussing parents’ concerns and aspirations for our school.
How do I get involved?
One of the best and easiest ways to get started is to join the monthly PAC meeting to discuss issues of importance regarding our school. Parental engagement is critical in order to adequately advise those that influence our school and our children’s education.
Become a member of our Cove Cliff Elementary School Community
Not only are our collective voices a tremendous value to our school, they offer a wealth of ideas and support in the challenges that our public school faces. Only through participation and interaction through the PAC, can we strenghten our advocacy and provide the best possible elementary school education for our children.
Elected PAC Executive and Volunteers Make a Difference
Our PAC needs strong participation from parents so we can continue to have an important influence on life at the school and the feelings the community has toward the school and education.
Learn About Our School
Most people think that Cove Cliff Elementary School was always here, but the land has an interesting history. Both the people in the community and the environment play an important role in our school’s educational programs.
Fundraising is one of the most important contributions that can really make a difference to the success of our school education programs.
Hot Lunch Program
One of the most important fundraisers for the PAC, the hot lunch program provides a wide variety of delicious and nutritious foods for our kids while also raising money for PAC programs. As usual, all of our parent volunteers is what makes hot lunch work so well.
Shop Locally and Give
Fundraising for your PAC can be as simple as shopping at your favorite store. We have teamed up with Mt. Seymour Park, Cobb’s Bread and Nestor’s Market to name a few. Giving to the PAC is simple… just mention Cove Cliff PAC at checkout.
Cove Cliff Spring Fair
Every year, the PAC and the school hold the Spring Fair. This is a fun filled day where parents and students can come join together to play games and eat yummy home made treats. This event is run entirely by our parent volunteers and is a great way to meet the community.
Our donation campaign runs from time to time and gives families in the community the chance to donate to the PAC and receive a tax benefit for the year. It’s a way for families to make a direct cash contribution to the PAC to benefit PAC funded programs at the school.
