Parent Action Council
WHS Parent Action Council
What is PAC? PAC is an incorporated organization similar to PTOs
or PTAs at other schools. We meet on the second Tuesday of every
month during the school year at 6:30 p.m. in the Resource Center.
We do not meet in December.
By attending a WHS PAC meeting, you are given an opportunity to
meet other parents, communicate with school administrators, and to
participate in planning for school related programs, events, etc.
In essence, the PAC is your opportunity to be involved in your
100% of our PAC membership dues are returned to the students, so
if you have not already become a member, I encourage you to join.
As a member, you will receive regular updates on what is happening
within the school and most recently we have been including minutes
of our monthly meetings for those who cannot attend. In the past,
we have been able to award several significant scholarships to
graduating seniors attending institutions of higher education. We
have also sponsored or contributed to activities for each
Here are some examples:
• $500 contribution to the senior yearbook publication
• $500 donation to the junior after-prom party
• sophomore ice cream social
• freshman orientation refreshments
In order to fund these activities and events, the PAC raises funds
in a variety of ways. Membership fees support a very small portion
of our budget. Past fundraising events include: Gold Sales,
Graduation Balloons, Wendy's Fundraisers, and Applebee's Pancake
