What is Canyon PAC?

The Canyon High School Parent Advisory Council (PAC for short) was created to benefit the families of Canyon High School.  The purpose of PAC is to facilitate communication between school administration and parents in support of students.  The PAC board works closely with the Canyon High counseling staff to provide information and programs relevant to student success in High School.

From time to time, PAC members support the school by lending a hand to help out school staff when needed.  

The PAC board also serves as an advisory group to the Principal regarding educational and facility needs and improvements. 

Funds collected through PAC  memberships help to sponsor student scholarships, teacher and staff appreciation efforts, student and parent informative seminars, and various needs across the campus.  100% of membership funds stay at Canyon!

 

Support PAC!  Be informed!
