Anderson PAC

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 on Zoom 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.

Our 2024-2025 School Year 1st. PAC meeting will be held on Wednesday Sep.11th @ 6:30pm, In the Multipurpose Room.

! Amended Constitution Bylaws will be available for PAC membership review over the summer and will be voted upon for adoption at the September PAC meeting. 

Further meeting dates and time for the coming school year will be determined during the first meeting. 

ALL parents are welcome and encouraged to attend!

So what’s the difference between a PAC Member and a PAC Executive?

PAC Executives are those parents who have chosen to hold an official position within the PAC.  These are volunteer positions with no compensation provided by the school.  Please see below for a short description of each position.

PAC Members can help the PAC throughout the year in fundraising or other initiatives or simply just attend the PAC meetings to find out what’s happening at the school.


PAC Executive Positions

Chair – The leader of the PAC who runs the meetings and ensures that each PAC Executive is doing their job. 

Vice Chair – Secondary leader who steps in when the Chairperson is absent.

Secretary/Co Secretary –  Creates agenda with PAC Execs, record minutes at each PAC meeting, checks the email account and makes them available to PAC Members.

Treasurer/Co Treasurer – Keeps track of PAC accounts and submits the BC Gaming Fund Application*.

*    Each year the provincial government provides the PAC with money (currently $20/student) to spend on extracurricular activities for students, like field trips, gym equipment, and computers.  This money is usually referred to as the “gaming grant” and is administered through a separate account.  However, there are some statutory limitations on the use of the gaming grant.  The PAC also fundraises, primarily through Pizza Days, to raise additional money that can be used for curricular (i.e., in class) activities.  


PAC Volunteer Opportunities

The following is a list of some of the parent volunteer opportunities :

Hot Lunch Program - Help plan / organize and hand out lunches to students.

Book Fair – Help sell Scholastic books to students in the school foyer to raise money for the library.

Purdy's Chocolates - Help sell and hand out chocolates.
