The Cameron Parent Advisory Council (PAC) represents all parents and guardians of Cameron students. This year we are struggling to find enough parent volunteers to run our events.
We need you to get involved, or we may not be able to offer events like the Welcome Back BBQ and Multicultural Dinner next year, or make purchases for the school like iPads and projectors, science kits, library books, and buses for field trips.
Come to the next PAC meeting
to find out about all the ways the PAC contributes to the school, and how you can help.
If you are unable to attend the meeting but would like to get involved, please contact us here
or email the Chair, Jen Zerkee at firstname.lastname@example.org
All parents are invited to the Cameron Parent Advisory Council meeting on Tuesday, November 14 at 7:00pm in the school staff room. Please consider attending to help us plan events, fundraising, and purchases.
The agenda is now available on the Minutes & Agendas page.
Please join us for the October PAC meeting at 7:00pm on Tuesday, October 10 to find out about the Vancity Youth Credit Union at Cameron from special guest Grace Yule, Vancity’s Youth Credit Union Coordinator.
The meeting agenda is available on the Minutes & Agendas page.
The Cameron Parent Advisory Council (PAC) welcomes all new and returning students, families, teachers, and staff to the new school year at Cameron.
The PAC represents parents and guardians and provides input to the school and the district about any aspect of education. The PAC encourages parent involvement in the school and provides a forum for discussion of issues related to education. See About the PAC for more info.

What does the PAC do?
Last year, we raised funds and contributed at least $9000 to the school by purchasing classroom resources, science kits, Cameron Cubs jerseys, portable projectors, library book, and music equipment, as well as transportation and snacks for school field trips and events. We also host a number of school community events during the year, such as the Welcome Back coffees and BBQ, Multicultural Dinner, Pancake Breakfast, and Staff Appreciation.
We need parent support to continue doing these things!
Without your help, we won’t be able to continue to contribute these things to the school community. The PAC welcomes all volunteers–we have one-time and ongoing opportunities, and roles that can accommodate any schedule. Visit the Get Involved page and watch for notices for current opportunities, and email email@example.com to be added to our volunteer email list.
The Cameron Parent Advisory Council would like to thank everyone who contributed in any way to our events and fundraisers this year, whether by volunteering time, participating in our fundraisers, or bringing food to our events. We had an exciting year and tried some new things, like the Greening Project, the Crash Crawly’s fundraiser, and our AGM, and we couldn’t do all the things we do without the support of Cameron families.
Watch for information about our first meeting in September, and come find out how you can be involved in the 2017-18 year!
Have a wonderful summer with your families!
The minutes from our final Parent Advisory Council meeting of the year are now available on the Minutes & Agendas page. These minutes include our finalized 2016-2017 budget, as well as our planned budget for 2017-2018.
The agenda for our last meeting of the year, on Tuesday, June 13 (7:00-9:00pm), is now available on the Minutes & Agendas page. Minutes from the May 11 AGM are also available.

The Cameron Parent Advisory Council held its Annual General Meeting and elections on Thursday, May 11 – thank you to those of you who were able to attend! If you were unable to attend, minutes will be available soon on the Minutes & Agendas page.
