Arbutus Global Middle School has an active and vibrant PAC, committed to supporting parents, students and staff.
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.

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 2021/2022 some of these things 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 2020/21 that included new chromebooks with a storage cart, new music stands, play and safety equipment for the outdoor play zones set up during COVID, 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.
We do not meet in December, March or June.
