Gilmore Elementary School

École Élémentaire James Gilmore


Parent Advisory Council

Welcome to the Parent Advisory Council For Our School

We believe our children’s educational experiences are more successful if we are involved in supporting their education.

The primary purposes of the Parent Advisory Council are to:
• assist with and contribute to various school related activities
• promote communication, co-operation and a forum for dialogue between home and school
• organize parent activities and events (educational, social, fund raising, etc.)

As a parent/guardian of a Gilmore student you automatically belong to and are a voting member of the James Gilmore Parent Advisory Council (PAC). Parent representatives also form the working committee (PAC Executive).

Parents also have representation in the Richmond District Parents' Association providing a link with other schools in Richmond and B.C.

Gilmore PAC - About Us
We are a group of parents who want to support our children's educational experience by volunteering to support the school in a variety of ways. You are welcome to join us at our monthly PAC meetings, with principal Mme Douglas and vice-principal Mme Orzen. This is a time for all parents to hear the latest on happenings at Gilmore, to discuss parents' ideas and ask questions. Through meetings, the parent bulletin board, newsletters, meeting minutes and our FaceBook group, there is an active effort to keep all parents informed and involved in school activities.
Contact us if you would like to be a volunteer or become involved in another way. Together, we are the Gilmore community.
