PAC Information

We are looking for parents to volunteer to belong to our PAC!  We know you are all busy and the commitment is not very big, but definitely worth while for the kids!!
The Parents Auxiliary will work to raise funds for the dancers.  The money goes towards year end awards for our hardworking dancers, the year end show dinner, studio holiday party as well as stock supplies used by our dancers at festival and for ribbons for the character skirts.
We also have a PAC sale room where parents can sell their gently used dancewear to other parents.  In addition the money raised throughout the year is also used to present all our hardworking dance teachers with a bouquet of flowers at the yearend show as a thank you from our students.
Please let Stacey know if you are interested in joining the PAC.
