Red Clay parents still needed at RCPAC – Monday 6pm Oct. 15 at Marbrook Elementary

October 10, 2012

The next meeting of the Red Clay Parent Advisory Council (RCPAC) is on Monday, October 15 at 6:00 at Marbrook Elementary (map).

RCPAC has been doing an excellent job communicating information from the District to parents. Now each month more parents need to come to the meeting and bring their information to the District! We need your help to put the A for Advisory back into RCPAC!

PTA meetings are indispensable for individual schools, but RCPAC is a way to get your questions and input directly before Red Clay district officers. Of course if you come, be courteous – members and non-members alike should make sure they have the floor before speaking.

The agenda for Monday’s meeting is posted online (click here to download agenda).

Agenda highlights are:

Malik Stewart from the Red Clay District office will present an update to Red Clay’s Consolidated Federal Grant application for FY 13. This application is submitted each year, and RCPAC members are asked to provide assistance and input. The application itself gives a lot of detail and insight into District activities. So if you want to find out what we are telling the Feds we are doing, this document is a good place to start. I had the opportunity to be on the review committee last summer, but wasn’t able to take part, so I hope I can participate next year. I’m looking forward to this update.
 
RCPAC will be going over planning for its upcoming 5th Annual Red Clay Family Resource Fair, this year on Saturday November 17th at Dickinson. This is a really fun day full of family activities, along with opportunities to learn about Red Clay programs you may not even have known existed. Especially with school choice season opening up November 1, this might be a good time to talk with school and district representatives all under one roof.
 
The Resource Fair needs VOLUNTEERS! If you can spend part of Saturday November 17th helping with the Resource Fair, please contact the District at the contact info listed on the RCPAC page.
