Parent Association

The mission of the Pacific American School Parent Association is to promote a strong, integrated, and diverse community of parents to benefit the education of its students as well as that of parents. Through educational programs, workshops, and special events, the Parent Association supports the mission of the school and provides assistance to the school through volunteer activities, organization of social gatherings and assistance in major school events. All the parents, both the current parents and the alumni parents, are members of Pacific American School’s Parent Association and serve as the vital resources to the school. Parental involvement in not only school events but also PA events is crucial, which is a vigorous force to the school community. The Parent Association Committee meets regularly to ensure clear communication between parents and the school throughout the year while providing opportunities for parents to connect with one another, furthering their understanding of the school and making contributions to the school community.

Parent Teacher Conference

Parent-teacher conferences are important opportunities to extend lines of communication between parents and school, keeping parents informed of their children’s academic concerns and progress. We schedule parent-teacher conferences three times during the school year after each quarter. Parents will be scheduled as a group to meet the subject teachers for 30 minutes in each class to get the update of the student learning. During the conference, each teacher will share information on curriculum, course pacing and any topic of concerns. Parents have chances to ask questions, share concerns, and look for teachers’ advice. Individual appointment with teachers can also be arranged. Productive and successful parent teacher conferences will help boost the mutual understanding of student learning between parents and the school, giving parents and teachers a chance to work together and to further support student success in learning.

Community Outreach

Community service plays a vital role for all PAS HS students. Starting in the ninth grade, a minimum of twenty hours of community service is required for all HS students in order to graduate. PAS affiliates itself with local organizations: World Peace Organization, Shi-Kuan Center for the Disabled, Shin-Jen Hospital, Eden Foundation, and Recycling Services with Chen-Shi Development Foundation. Fundraising efforts for these centers is also part of PAS students’ commitment to the community. In 2013-14, the AUDS club was formed which works in collaboration with World Vision. This club holds fundraising activities and donates to World Vision regularly. Students in the AUDS club do not gain any community service hours for attendance, but do charity work voluntarily. This year 2014-15, PAS students offer English classes to under-privileged students to provide them with an opportunity to learn English for free. PAS students learn to care for students with special needs and to take action in ways that can help provide assistance. They also learn to extend their support to those who are in need in the community.     The Interact Club at PAS is a Rotary International’s service club for young people ages 12 to 18 and was started at PAS in 2010. The PAS Interact club is sponsored by 3500 Rotary clubs, which provide support and guidance. However, the PAS Interact Club is self-governing and self-supportive within the school’s club and its outreach to the community. Interact club completes at least two community service projects, one of which aims to further international understanding and goodwill. Through these efforts, PAS Interact develops a network of friendships with local and overseas clubs, and learns the importance of developing leadership skills and personal integrity, demonstrating helpfulness and respect for others, understanding the value of individual responsibility and hard work, and advancing international understanding and goodwill.
