PAC Information

Arbutus Global Middle School Parent Advisory Council

Connecting parents to our school and community

As parents, we recognize that our children’s success at school is dependent on our interest, support and engagement in their education and the school community.

For recent meeting minutes and other info please see “PAC News”

2020-21 Executive

  • President:  Sharilynn Wardrop
  • Vice-President: Andrea Griffore
  • Treasurer:  Ed Forbes
  • Secretary:  Kaitlyn Chewka
  • Member at Large: Paul Lamoureux
  • Member at Large: Onowa McIvor

Some activities that the PAC has organized or been engaged in:

Each year the PAC funds several community activities, including a welcome coffee, a family barbeque, hot chocolate morning, staff appreciation, parent education and other events. In 2020/2021 these may not happen, or they will look different. But we hope to find other ways to connect as a community.

We also fund a variety of needs for the school community. These include emergency supplies, food for kids who are without lunches, funds to support clubs, sports, music or arts activities. We also pay for special projects that are needed by the school. In 2019/20 that included new bike rakes, new volleyball nets and stands, upgrades to sports uniforms and a contribution to landscaping in the school’s Indigenous garden.

Please email if you have any further questions or would like to be involved.


The PAC (Parent Advisory Council) generally meets on the third Tuesday of each month at 7 pm on Zoom.  All parents are members and are invited and encouraged to attend.  LInks for the Zoom meeting will be sent out a day ahead of the meeting.
