Parent Association (PAC)

PARENT ADVISORY COUNCIL (PAC)

PAC is the middle school version of a PTA or PTO.  The council meets throughout the year to discuss ideas in which we can support our students and teachers at Wilson Middle School.  Meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month, with the exception of December and May, at 6:00 PM in our office conference room.  We invite all!

Why join PAC:

It’s good for your child ~ Research shows that children whose parents are involved in their school make better grades and have fewer disciplinary problems at school.

It’s important to the school ~ The PAC is responsible for almost all of the school’s fundraising revenue.  They provide support to teachers and administrators, and create a caring and supportive atmosphere in the school.

You’ll get connected ~ There is no better way to know what’s going on in the school than to be on the PAC.  You’ll be first to hear about important decisions and changes the school is thinking about making, and you will get to know teachers and administrators on a familiar basis.

You’ll be part of a network ~ The PAC is an opportunity to meet other parents in the same situation as you.  You will connect with a group of parents who share a common goal of improving the school for the children.

You’ll make a difference ~ You will be able to use your skills for a noble cause.  The PAC works to establish a supportive and encouraging community for the entire school.  The goal is to create the most educational environment possible for our children.

It’s fun ~ You’ll connect with a group of people who are all concerned with creating a better environment for their children.  You will plan fun events, socials, and get-togethers.

You’ll be a role model ~ You’ll show your children that not only are they important to you, but their education is as well.  They’ll see you taking a stand to make education better for them and their peers and chances are they’ll do the same.

You’ll help raise necessary funds ~ Fundraisers remain important to improving the quality of the school overall, and the PAC makes them possible.

It’s flexible ~ There are a variety of small ways parents can help and be involved.  Project responsibilities are flexible and can be adjusted to fit with your time constraints.

It’s for every parent/guardian ~ Your voice and opinion matters and makes a difference when you speak up.  Your voice and ideas can improve the quality of education for your children and their peers.

Being an involved parent can be as simple as helping your child with homework or even reading together.  The more time you take out of your day to become more involved in your child’s education, the better.  You don’t have to make the PAC a full time job to make a difference.  However, volunteering occasionally and attending school events really matter.  Showing your children you value education will teach them to value it as well!
