Parent Action Committee

The Parent Action Committee plans and organizes special events and activities that enhance the sense of community at our school. This committee is open to all clients of Nature's Pathways and 2nd Nature Academy. The Parent Action Committee has aided in preparation, organized, and hosted several community events for students and their families, including annual Fall Festivals and Winter Holiday Galas, pancake breakfasts, spaghetti suppers, bake sales, raffles, and a variety of school-based fundraisers to benefit our educational community. Additionally, PAC provides support for our school-wide service learning projects.
