Welcome to the Parent Advisory Council For Our School


We are a group of parents who support our children's educational experience at Gilmore by volunteering to support the school in a variety of ways. You are welcome to join us at our monthly PAC meetings, along with the school Principal, Mr.Shuto. Hear the latest on what's happening at Gilmore, discuss ideas and ask questions. Through meetings, newsletters, meeting minutes and our Facebook group, there is an active effort to keep all parents informed and involved in school activities.  Please see attached meeting minutes below.  

Contact us if you would like to volunteer for the PAC or help out with a food day or become involved in another way.  Scroll down for our contact information.  

Together, we are the Gilmore community!
