Parent Action Council

WHS Parent Action Council

What is PAC? PAC is an incorporated organization similar to PTOs or PTAs at other schools. We meet on the second Tuesday of every month during the school year at 6:30 p.m. in the Resource Center. We do not meet in December.
By attending a WHS PAC meeting, you are given an opportunity to meet other parents, communicate with school administrators, and to participate in planning for school related programs, events, etc. In essence, the PAC is your opportunity to be involved in your child's education.

100% of our PAC membership dues are returned to the students, so if you have not already become a member, I encourage you to join. As a member, you will receive regular updates on what is happening within the school and most recently we have been including minutes of our monthly meetings for those who cannot attend. In the past, we have been able to award several significant scholarships to graduating seniors attending institutions of higher education. We have also sponsored or contributed to activities for each class.

Here are some examples:

• $500 contribution to the senior yearbook publication
• $500 donation to the junior after-prom party
• sophomore ice cream social
• freshman orientation refreshments

In order to fund these activities and events, the PAC raises funds in a variety of ways. Membership fees support a very small portion of our budget. Past fundraising events include: Gold Sales, Graduation Balloons, Wendy's Fundraisers, and Applebee's Pancake Breakfasts.
