Anderson Elementary School


Parent Advisory Council

Who and What Is the PAC (Parent Advisory Committee)?

All parents (and guardians) with children at Henry Anderson Elementary School are members of Anderson’s PAC.  The PAC’s primary goal is to promote effective communication between the home and the school. 

PAC information is available on the school website <>.  Any questions or concerns can be emailed to

PAC Meetings

Once a month, the PAC Executives, PAC Members, and the School Administration, usually the Principal and Vice Principal, meet in the school library for about an hour.  At these meetings the School Administration informs parents of what is happening at the school—past events as well as upcoming events.  Other topics of discussion may include new fundraising initiatives, how to spend PAC monies, and any other concerns that have been raised by parents.

Dates and times for PAC meetings will be set at the beginning of the school year and posted on the website.  Depending on demand, child minding may be available.  ALL parents are welcome and encouraged to attend!
