PAC Cafe, Updates & Minutes

It’s hard to believe we are almost at the end of October!! The first part of the school year is just flying by and we know everyone is feeling how busy the month is as welll.

At the bottom of this post are the minutes for our September 2023 and October 2023 meetings – if there are any corrections needed please just email us at undefined


This is an excellent oppertunity for all PAC members (i.e. all parents of children in an SD57 school) to get together and connect in person over a catered lunch and coffee in an informal setting.

PAC Cafe is a dedicated in-person time for you as parents and PACs to:

  • Share ideas, ask questions and explore where others are having similar experiences or challenges
  • Network with other PACs, parents & volunteers in our school district
  • Get to know other parents and PACs and develop some new connections and friendships
  • ask (and tell) the DPAC anything and everything – this event is for you to tell us what we need to know and do to help advocate for you

Pre-registration is required – Please register HERE

Otherwise we have no clue how much food to order 🙂

DPAC is sponsoring a majority of the costs. We are only charging $15 per person/attendee.

Please email us at if this is a barrier for you to attend, as we do have funds to support access and ensure all are included.

If you are from Hixon, Mackenzie, McBride, or Valemount, please let us know, as we will assist with a mileage reimbursement.

Our Chair (Laura Weller) and Vice-Chair (Christa Porter) were in the media promoting the Mental Health Resources Fair. Take a few minutes to review these short clips on the websites below.

“And again, this isn’t just for parents of kids who are struggling now, it’s for anybody who cares about kids and how they feel, and how they’re functioning, because you can be that person.” – Laura Weller (Chair)
“If we can get supports to our children when they are younger, they can grow and learn how to handle emotions, or challenges, or crisis, in a healthy way.” – Christa Porter (Vice-Chair)
