Elementary School PAC


Hello and welcome to the 2023/24 school year!

Your Crosstown Elementary Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is proud to support many activities at our school and provide volunteer opportunities for parents to get involved. We place a high value on the opportunity to create and sustain a strong link between school and home. We hope you will join us as we work together with the staff to make Crosstown Elementary the best it can be for our children and school community.

Good news, if you are a parent/guardian of a student at Crosstown Elementary, you are already a member of the PAC.

Meeting dates will be posted below and on our Facebook group.

Ways you can get involved:

    What We're Raising Money For in 2022/23


Located in downtown’s International Village, Crosstown Elementary School is a 4-storey school that offers programs for students from Kindergarten to Grade 7. The 47,350 square foot school also features 22 classrooms, a full-sized gymnasium and daycare. Students enjoy a rooftop playground and patio area. The school has an innovative design that provides a 21st century learning environment for 465 students. The first portion of construction required the full structural and seismic upgrading of the existing parkade to ensure it could support the new structure. We extensively modified the existing structure to introduce a new elevator shaft. The parkade remained fully-operational throughout the entire construction process.
