About our PAC

About PAC

The Myrtle Philip Community School Parent Advisory Council (MPCS PAC) is made up of parent volunteers who oversee a wide variety of fundraising initiatives and programs that help support our students, teachers and the administration of our school.


We believe that by involving and informing parents, we will have a more supportive and effective school environment for our children. It is up to us to work together as a community to ensure our children have the best possible school experience.


This year we need to raise funds for our school, and we need your support!
