Chair Report

As all are aware, we have our monthly themes that are being focused on throughout this school year (see below) and for December we are switching it up a bit – there will be no presentations from our Partner Groups (though they will be there) and instead we want to hear from you – PACs and parents. This month it is your turn to update us on how things are going, with your PAC and your school and family. What has gone well so far? What have been both your successes and your struggles? What do you want or need us to know?

We are really excited to hear from you, our parents and PACs and school communities this month and we know the partner groups are as well 🙂
