What is a PAC?
The PAC is the Parent Advisory Council.
PAC members: All Sunnyside parents/guardians are members of the PAC and entitled to attend meetings. Administrators and staff may be invited to become non-voting members.
PAC executives: PACs annually elect the PAC executives, usually consisting of a chair, vice-chair, secretary, treasurer, and other members of the Council, as the membership decides.
PAC voting: All Sunnyside parents/guardians are entitled to vote at general PAC meetings. Administrators and staff do not vote, unless they are also a Sunnyside parent/guardian.
“There is strong evidence that increased parent involvement in the school results in increased student achievement, accomplishment, satisfaction, and bonding all of which result in decreased dropout rates and better citizen."

Sunnyside PAC goals
Our goal is to promote the education and welfare of our students
by strengthening communication between parents and the administration,
by building our community though school events that promote belonging, and celebration,
by encouraging parent involvement in the school,
by enhancing extracurricular opportunities for our students through fundraisers, and
by providing opportunities for children and families to participate in charitable giving.
“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire”
