PAC Parent Advisory Council


Every parent of a Deer Lake School student is automatically a member of the Parent Advisory Council (PAC). Being a part of PAC allows parents an opportunity to get to know one another, and to contribute to school life in a positive way. Parents have traditionally supported the school hot lunch program and volunteered as classroom reps, event coordinators, sport coaches and fundraisers.

If you would like to be more involved in the DLS PAC  please send an email to PAC President Jeanette Pavolic at

2023-2024 PAC Leadership Team

What better way to enjoy the Family Day weekend than at Deer Lake School’s Lunar New Year Multicultural Festival? 

The Lunar New Year is a popular holiday in our city for family celebrations. And on the Family Day weekend, it becomes the perfect opportunity for DLS to honour the rich multicultural diversity of our school family. This multicultural celebration will offer delicious food booths from various countries, live multicultural music, craft activities, carnival games, face painting and so much more! Admission is free, but various vendors will sell their foods, crafts, games and activities. This festival is a great event for the entire family - and please bring a friend. 

This event is hosted by Deer Lake School’s PAC (parent advisory council). 


Admission tickets are free, but you will need to reserve your admission, as well as purchase tickets/tokens used to make purchases in the festival for various foods, crafts and activities. Reservations and ticket/tokens open up on Feb. 1. 


All profits from this event will go to the DLS ARTS program.
