Welcome Back!

On behalf of the PJPAC Executive, we would like to extend a warm welcome to all students and parents returning to École Pauline Johnson, and new families joining the school. We have high hopes that this will be an excellent year. It certainly started on a high note with a spectacular turnout at our Back to School Coffee. Thanks to all who attended. Keep an eye on our calendar for upcoming school and social events.

This year, the PAC Executive welcomes some new members to our team. As Co-chairs, we are excited to introduce Claudia Chavez-Munoz (Grade 2 parent) and Barry Nguyen (Grade 1 parent). Additionally, we are pleased to welcome Jenny Cha as our Fundraising and Events Coordinator, and Olivia Zishiri as our Volunteer Coordinator. We are also thrilled to have Rowena Veylan move into the role of Past Chair, Bartek Kienc returning as our Treasurer, Vicky Rhodes as Secretary, Stephanie LeComte as our Communications Coordinator, Tayo Adeniyi as our DPAC Representative, and our members at large: Laureline Balzan (Canadian Parents for French), Ryan and Parvaneh Bruce (Cultural Community Representatives), Devika Ahuja (New Family Representative), and Nazanin Parivar and Kamyar Yazdani (Spirit Committee Leads).

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any inquiries, suggestions, comments, or any other feedback. The PAC represents all PJ parents, and the Executive is here to be your voice. Welcome, and let’s work together to make this a great year!
