All parents/guardians of students at Margaret Jenkins are automatically part of the Parent Advisory Council (PAC). The PAC Executive consists of a smaller number of parents elected at the AGM in May each year to represent the other members, help coordinate parent volunteers, communicate with families and administration, and oversee that fundraising efforts and parent-initiated programs and events are carried out as planned in the budget and that money raised is spent on programs, activities, and resources that have the potential to benefit all students at EMJS.
