Welcome to the 2023/2024 School Year!
Did you know that every parent and guardian is a member of the Yarrow PAC? We are hoping to build a strong sense of community within our school and we encourage parents to get involved. One way to start is by attending our monthly PAC meetings, which are held on the last Tuesday of the month at 7PM, in the YCS Library.
Your 2023/2024 PAC Executive
Yarrow PAC communicates in a variety of ways. As mentioned above, monthly PAC meetings are a great place that communication happens. A few others include...
1. Yarrow PAC Webpage - This will have general information, upcoming dates, Newsletters, and PAC meeting Agendas and Minutes posted on it. https://yarrow.sd33.bc.ca/pac
2. Facebook - Yarrow Community School PAC - We use this to communicate most often. This is a space we look for volunteers, post reminders and polls, and share about events. Make sure to join this page to keep up to date.
3. Email - Monthly newsletters and other reminders are sent out through email. If you aren't getting emails, email us at email@example.com and we will add you to the list!
If you are interested in getting involved or have any concerns, please email the PAC executive at firstname.lastname@example.org
4. Backpacks - Any notices or forms that are sent home will come home with the family courier (Oldest child).
