Parent Advisory
​​​​​​​​​How do I become a member of the Parent Advisory Council?

All parents who have students registered at Black Mountain Elementary School are automatically a member of the school Parent Advisory Council (PAC) and are encouraged and welcome to attend monthly meetings.  There also a PAC Facebook page, which contains regular updates regarding events/info for the school.

All meetings are planned to be at 6:00 via Zoom.  A few days prior to each PAC session, you'll receive a Zoom link through School Messenger.
