Shawsheen-West PAC

What is the PAC?

The Shawsheen-West PAC (Parent Advisory Council) is a group of parents/guardians who work closely with school administration from both the Shawsheen and the West and are very dedicated to helping our schools be the best they can be. The PAC conducts fundraising activities that provide funds for grants for teachers, enrichment programs for classrooms, and much, much more.
