Our school has an active Parent Advisory Council which helps enrich your child's education and helps you become involved in the school. The PAC organizes fundraisers for the school, discusses school board policies, student safety, and any other concerns you may have regarding your child's school. All parents of Tyson students are automatically members of Tyson PAC, and we encourage all parents to attend our meetings, get involved in activities, and support our great school! Newsletters are online at www.tyson.sd33.bc.ca to inform you of upcoming activities. Any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us.
The PAC generally meets on the fourth Monday of each month at 6:30 pm in the school Library.
At Tyson Elementary, there are many ways to get involved as a volunteer at school. Volunteers are needed in the Library, in classrooms, at special events, for field trips, to support sports teams, etc. A form to request volunteers and to outline areas for which you may volunteer is sent home each school year. You will also be asked to complete a free Criminal Record Check (through the RCMP) which is kept on file. Please contact the school if we missed you. Volunteer Drivers must have a completed Drivers Abstract (free through ICBC) and Volunteer Driver Authorization form on file at the office.
This year at Tyson we are trying out a new system of online ordering. We are implementing the Munch A Lunch program with a generous donation to cover costs from the South Sumas Shell Station. Please take the time to sign up! If you are not able to sign up and use this system, we will provide paper copies of the Hot Lunch forms in the PAC bin just around the corner from the Tyson Office door.
