As the executives of the Tomsett Elementary Parent Advisory Council (PAC), we would like to welcome you all to the new PAC website, and if you are new to the Tomsett community, Hello!
The School Act gives parents the right, through Parent Advisory Councils (PACs), to assume an advisory role in every school. You automatically become a member of the Tomsett PAC when your child enrolls at the school.
Being involved at Tomsett should be a rewarding and enjoyable experience not to mention an opportunity to meet other parents while being involved in an activity that ultimately benefits our students. All Tomsett parents are welcome and encouraged to find ways to use your skills, talents and interests to enhance the Tomsett experience. Perhaps you want to:
