Our various school-based 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 for students, teachers, parents and guardians. This page has been created with the intention of sharing upcoming events as they are hosted by School District No. 48 PACs and DPAC, as well as resources PACs and DPAC may find useful. If you have an event you would like to see added to the list, please contact Chloe Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Earth Day Canada website includes many great ideas for celebrating Earth Day at school and at home.
