Parent and Family Engagement Opportunities

Partner with us for the 2017-2018 school year!

Title I Parent Advisory Council Meetings

The Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is made up of a parent representative from each grade level, the principal, a teacher, and the parent outreach facilitator. The PAC meets at least three times a year and gives input and direction for the Title I program including the school compact, the school policy for parent involvement, and the parent workshops. ALL parents at Stewart Middle are invited and encouraged to attend and participate in all PAC meetings. The meetings will be advertised on the school website, on signage, and through flyers. Please note that dates and times are subject to change.
