Phoenix Action Crew (PAC)
Phoenix = We are ALL Phoenix – students, families, faculty/staff.
Action = We are all about action – acts, effects, influence, etc.
Crew = A group of people who work closely together – friends, family.
All BDCHS parents/families are members of the BDCHS PAC. This group is key to strengthening the school community. Their efforts include facilitating communication between school and home serving as a means for helping parents/families to actively participate in their children’s education and school. Parents and families are encouraged to get involved; there are many ways to go about doing this.
PAC coordinates activities and events such as luncheons and breakfasts for both students and faculty. They oversee one major fundraising event a year working closely with the school’s Principal, Director of Development and Development Committee. The PAC holds quarterly meetings for all BDCHS families for school and PAC updates, and include guest speakers. These presentations provide parents and families with education and assistance with parenting in today’s world and connecting them to their teen’s school life. This year’s PAC meetings will be held in the BDCHS cafeteria at 6:00 p.m.; meeting dates include:
Tuesday, November 15
Tuesday, February 21
Tuesday, May 16
