What is Hyalite PAC?
Hyalite PAC is the Parent Advisory Council of the Hyalite Elementary School. It is an organization made up of parents and guardians who are interested in learning more about our school, connecting with other parents, offering time for school committees and events, demonstrating increased involvement and interest in supporting our school’s children and staff, or any of these. PAC is the officially recognized voice of parents at the school level, providing an opportunity for parents and guardians to advise on school programs, policies, plans and activities. The purpose of PAC is to support, promote and improve the quality of education and well being of Hyalite students and encourage parent participation at Hyalite ElementarySchool. All parents and guardians of children enrolled at Hyalite are automatically members of PAC.Teachers and staff are welcome, too! Family involvement at Hyalite helps define this wonderful learning community. Not only does your involvement show your children how important they are, but also allows you to connect with other parents, as well as your kid’s friends and classmates.
PAC members support the goals of HyaliteElementary School by attending PAC meetings, serving on committees, assisting in the classroom, raising funds for school programs, and participating in program-wide or community events. PAC supports students and staff in the following ways:
- Individual and class pictures
- Art and music in the classroom
- Staff Appreciation
- Classroom field trips (scholarships and bussing)
- Classroom equipment and materials
- Drama workshops
- After-School Program field trip scholarships
How can you help PAC?
Volunteer and contribute your time, effort, connections or money for our Hyalite School Programs. Time commitment for PAC varies depending on the time you have available and your desired level of involvement. Some parents attend one or all of the three annual meetings, some parents work behind the scene helping with projects for the classroom, while some parents give countless hours to large school fundraisers and events. Time needed for each activity and any involvement is appreciated. Every little bit helps.
The PAC general assembly meets four times during the school year from 6:00 -7:30pm in the Hyalite School Library. Please visit the Hyalite PAC website for meeting dates at HyalitePAC.org. Free child care and pizza are provided during these meetings.
Each meeting is 60-minutes long and starts from6:00 to 7:00 PM in the School Library. We understand you're busy and will be respectful of your time! Child Care and Pizza are always provided.
