First PAC meeting and election results

On Wednesday, September 22nd, the École Heather Park Elementary Parent Advisory Council held its first meeting, attended by about 60 people. At this meeting, the first executive members were elected, as follows:

Chair                                      
Sally Connon

Vice Chair                            
Kelly Thirkettle

Treasurer  
Leeann Poppleton

Secretary
Lesley Lindsay

Volunteer Co-ordinator
Yvonne Parkinson

Communications  Co-ordinators       
Sarah Holland
Tracy Christensen

The executive will meet in the coming week to start planning the next general meeting, at which point more volunteer and executive positions will be created. The next general meeting will be Wednesday, October 6, at 7pm.

The executive has asked me to post that we are so pleased by the number of people both attending the meeting and who stood for election. The meeting format didn’t allow for everyone to be put in a position, but we’re a big school – we both need and value all the great people who ran, and all of our parents. Together, we are strong.
