Our Parent Advisory Councils (PACs) and the district-wide DPAC put in countless hours throughout the school year to provide support for their school communities through the organization of events and initiatives and sharing of resources for students, teachers, parents and guardians.
If you have an event or resource you would like to see added, please contact Laura Darch at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Mental Health & Well-being in Our Schools
At the first DPAC meeting of this school year, Superintendent, Lisa McCullough, and Director of Instruction, Phillip Clarke, presented a variety of research data to provide a mental health snapshot of our students from kindergarten to grade 12.
