Good afternoon! I hope your student has settled into the first few weeks of school this year. We are excited to be under way and look forward to another great year at Caledonia!
Caledonia’s Parent Advisory Council (PAC) will meet for the first time this year on Tuesday, October 1st. I would like to encourage all interested parents to come out to this meeting and learn more about what the PAC does to support our school and students. The PAC meets once per month throughout the school year to discuss school organization, events, and funding for various extra-curricular events. Many parents can be scared away from joining the PAC, believing that they will need to spend a bunch of time fundraising. I want to assure each of you that this is not the case at Caledonia. Our PAC oversees the gaming grant money that is allocated to the school each year and determines the best use of these funds, but does not engage in fundraising as an organization. The time commitment to be part of the PAC is roughly one hour per month, and it gives parents a direct voice as to what happens within the school and is a great way to keep updated on school initiatives, events and growth plan focus.
We would love to see you out on October 1st to be part of this group! We meet in the Caledonia library at 7:00 the first Tuesday of each month.
Keith Axelson, Principal
