As a parent or guardian of a student at Sangster Elementary, you are part of the PAC and are encouraged to come to the monthly meetings.  After our initial meeting, we will be meeting the second Wednesday of every month at 6:30 in the Library. We have an amazing group of parents who have been elected to the executive, so don’t worry about being recruited into a position on the executive😀 The PAC Executive is a group of parents and guardians who work full or part-time, the always busy stay-at-home mom, and parents who are furthering their education. 

We will have volunteer opportunities throughout the year, and helping at our Spring Fair is one of those—it is our biggest event of the year, and really enables us to provide the program that we deliver for the students so please help when the call comes out!   

The purpose of the Sangster PAC is:

To advise the school principal and staff on parental views about school programs, policies and activities.
To communicate with parents and to promote co-operation between the home and school in providing for the education of children.
To assist parents in accessing the system, and to advocate on behalf of parents and students.
To organize PAC activities and events.
To contribute to the effectiveness of the school by promoting the involvement of parents and other community members.
To raise funds to benefit the students.

Safe arrival is a program we have in place to help keep our children safe! We are one of the few schools that still offer this program.  If you know your child will be away, please call 250-478-4441 before the morning bell. We need your help to make this a successful program, so if you have an hour to spare on a weekday morning please contact Medardo. 

Sangster PAC organizes multiple fundraisers throughout the school year to raise funds for a variety of things including field trips, books, technology, and so much more. The more money raised, the more things we can do for our school! Some of the fund

raisers this year will include poinsettias, Purdy’s, sheet sets, spring fair, and a paint night. Stay tuned for more information! Please note there is no obligation to contribute to any or all of the fundraisers. Please contact Brittney for more information about upcoming fundraisers, and how you can help!
