What is a PAC?
A Parent Advisory Council is an advocacy group made up of parents to discuss school issues, goals, and the wellbeing of the students in Elev8 Homelinks. This is a forum where parents can ask questions, voice concerns, and speak to other parents. It is the ideal place to learn about what is going on in the school itself. If you are a parent of a child in Homelinks then you are a PAC member!
The PAC members also organize PAC-related activities, raise funds for school events and activities, apply for and manage the Community Gaming Grant, and promote parent support and involvement within Elev8 Homelinks.
We invite and welcome all parents and caregivers of Elev8 Homelinks to our Parent Advisory Council (PAC).
PAC Vision Statement: Happy Healthy Educated Children
The Elev8 Homelinks PAC is committed to every student by encouraging parental and community communication, education, and involvement. PAC provides a dynamic link between home, school, and local community; it is vital to all learners and a healthy school community.
Please view our Elev8 PAC Constitution and Bylaws.

PAC Meetings are usually held on the last Friday of every month unless there is a conflict with a professional development day or a statutory holiday. The meeting will then be held the following Friday. All meetings start at 10:00 AM in person upstairs in the Creston Homelinks staff room. For those wanting to attend from home, you can do so through Google Meet. NOTE: a link will be provided to all parents prior to the meeting.
2023/2024 Schedule, Agendas, and Minutes

EVERYONE IS WELCOME!
