Bill 64: The Education Modernization Act Information

As a Parent Advisory Council, we have been talking about the changes to schooling that the Manitoba government is proposing - The Education Modernization Act, Bill 64. 

We want to share our concern about this issue as how we see it will affect our students and communities for years to come. 

Please review the letter the Parkside Parent Advisory Council has sent to the Minister of Education.  PAC Letter re- Bill 64.pdf

If you want to write a letter of concern to our government, here are sample template letters and information you can use to express your concern and advocate in opposition of the proposed bill.  As Parkside Parent Council we are encouraging you to take some time to review Bill 64. You can find information about Bill 64 by visiting The Legislative Assembly of Manitoba website (here).

Volunteer Opportunities

We are always looking for ways our parents can become involved in the life of the school.  Choose an option that works for you and let us know at the school which one is for you!

1.  Become a PAC Member for 2020-2021 - contact the school if you are interested!  This year the PAC will meet virtually from 12:00noon - 1:00pm approximately once per month.  Currently, we are looking for parents to fill executive positions as well as be a general member. 

2.  Hot Lunch - help with hot lunches by volunteering to serve food items.  We are looking for parents who have a Food Handler's Certificate as this year we need extra help because of Public Health Regulations.
