Join us for Parent Council Meetings!

BELA Parent Advisory Council

The BELA Parent Advisory Council (PAC) meets 4 times during the school year. PAC provides an opportunity for all parents, including class representatives, to provide feedback to BELA staff, gain information, ask questions and make suggestions, in relation to the school. All parents are welcome, and encouraged to attend these meetings. Classroom reps are required to attend PAC meetings. PAC also takes the lead on planning 4 exciting events throughout the school year!




Meeting Dates:

Thursday, September 28 @ 7pm

Thursday, October 26 @ 7pm

PAC-Led Events:

November- Random Acts of Kindness Day

Random Acts of Kindness Day (RAK Day) is a mission to prove that Kindness is Cool, encouraging the "pay it forward" philosophy in our community. Last year, parent volunteers helped our students bake and deliver 14 dozen cookies to all our neighbours in South Shore and some special stops around town including City Hall, the local radio station and a few big BELA supporters!

February-Friendship Month

Last year during February, BELA students had a food drive for the whole month of February and delivered it to the local food bank. We also spread smiles to our friends at the local seniors facilities, when students went for a visit and delivered special crafts and friendship bracelets!

April/May-BELA Run for Reading

The last 4 years, the BELA Run for Reading in September has been a fun family event, including 3km, 5km or 10km run/walk event with activities such as a photobooth, facepainting and healthy snacks following! BELA is a non-profit organization and in the past all proceeds from the run go towards supporting literacy at BELA.

June-Year End Celebration

Pre-school is the beginning of the children’s formal school career. With input from our parents, with Parent Council’s help, we informally celebrate the learning of our children on their last day of class in June. Each class provides a brief presentation, PAC provides snacks, and the children are presented with their certificates.

Come join us at Parent Council and help shape the culture at BELA! See your classroom teacher for details and watch our social media for meeting reminders!
