PAC raises funds to benefit the students & staff at St. Paul Central. Help us continue the good work we do for the vibrant Central community
What is PAC?
PAC is an informal group of parents, guardians and community members who meet 5 times per year. Our goal is to support the whole Central community. We do this by raising and distributing funds (over $17,000 in 2012-13), occasionally organizing parent volunteers, and finding ways to show our appreciation of Central’s staff.
How does PAC raise money? Once a year, we send a letter to all Central parents and guardians asking for donations. This is our only fundraiser. Another way to donate is through our GiveMN website page, please check it out at GiveMN.org. Thanks again to all past and future donors. Your money is well spent.
How are PAC funds distributed? Central staff members make requests of PAC. We approve or deny those requests at meetings with guidance from Central administrators. In 2012-2013, PAC funded over 25 requests. In the past, PAC has paid for things like student planners, bus tokens for students who stay after school for tutoring, new bike racks, signs around the school and many essential classroom materials like: foreign language material subscriptions, art supplies, document cameras, and white boards. PAC also pays for meals and treats for Central staff during conferences throughout the school year.
Why should I go to a PAC meeting?
• find out what’s going on at Central • share ideas & provide input on how PAC money is spent • meet other parents and members of the Central community • ask Mrs. Mackbee questions about Central
When and where are PAC meetings?
Meetings are in the conference room in the office area.
