What is MPCS PAC? 

The Myrtle Philip Community School Parent Advisory Council (MPCS PAC) is made up of parent volunteers who oversee a wide variety of programs, fundraising initiatives and advocacy to help support our students, teachers and the administration of our school which serves 330 students from kindergarten to grade seven. The purpose of the PAC is to support, encourage and improve the quality of education and the well being of MPCS’s students to support the school’s mission “to ensure academic excellence by building a community of engaged learners”.


We work to:

  • Advise the principal and staff on parents’ views on any matter relating to the school, including its programs, policies, plans and activities

  • Communicate with parents to promote cooperation between home and school in providing for the education of children

  • Support the teachers at the school in their work in the classroom

  • Assist parents to gain access to the educational system

  • Contribute to the effectiveness of the school by promoting the involvement of parents and other community members.

What are some of the PAC initiatives? 

MPCS PAC oversees a variety of activities and committees for the purpose of fundraising and the cultural and educational enrichment of our students. We believe that by involving and informing parents, we will have a more supportive and effective school environment for our children. It is up to us to work together as a community to ensure our children have the best possible school experience. Each year we need to raise funds for our school, and we need your support!
