5th Grade Hyalite Canyon hike supported by Color Run fitness funds
The Hyalite PAC or Parent Advisory Council is an organization formed by parents, for parents to work in partnering with our school and community to enrich and enhance our children’s educational experience at Hyalite Elementary School.
To accomplish these goals, the Hyalite PAC conducts fundraisers and solicits funding and support from community and families to be spent on:
Classroom enrichment grants including field trips, unique experiences and classroom materials.
Community building through free and low-cost family events and programming such as Fall Festival and family movie night
Parent education and outreach through monthly meetings and speaker presentations on Common Core Math, school safety and more.
School improvement in the form of both curriculum enhancement like art, language and STEAM programs and facilities improvement like playground equipment, sculptures and more.
Outreach to families in need through food drives, snack milk donations and more.
To see what we accomplished last year including our fundraising and budget goals, check out our annual report.
