The Parent Advisory Council is a group of volunteer parents and community members who promote the goals of the district's early childhood programming. Our program's mission is to strengthen Bloomington and Richfield families through quality education and support in parenting and parent-child relationships.
The Parent Advisory Council advises the district on a variety of issues affecting parents of young children, including policy, fees, programming, how money is spent, and what events are important to families. The Council sponsors a variety of fun events for young families.
The Council manages fundraisers and determines where to allocate the monies raised. In past years they have raised funds for new playgrounds at Pond and Southwood, digital cameras and computers, supplemental classroom materials, literacy curriculum, and supplemental student activities.
We want to hear from you! We are the liaison between parents and the school system. We welcome your comments, suggestions, and concerns. We represent all parents and will see that your needs are addressed.
Our monthly meetings take place on the second Thursday of each month, from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Pond Early Learning Center unless otherwise noted. Meetings are open to the public.
