PAC is committed to facilitating positive communication between the school and its families and involving everyone in building a strong, healthy, thriving school community.
Barriere Elementary School Parent Advisory Council is a non-profit volunteer organization run by the parents of our unique, passionate, and energetic students who are enrolled at Barriere Elementary School. Our role is to provide support for the administration and staff in delivering the very best educational experience possible for our children. We support many programs at the school including; Math Night and the Mathletics program, the One to One reading program, field trips for both primary and intermediate grades, play ground and sport equipment, prizes and incentives for good behaviour not to mention items we feel our essential to our school such as projector bulbs for the smart boards and and other learning resources currently not funded by the province. Your voice is needed to guide our efforts - your hands on help gives us the strength to carry out our objectives. Our parents make a difference in our school, our parents are what makes our school different.
