Meet the P.A.C. Executive Team


President:  Leila Harrison (She/Her)

IMG_9315I am very excited to be serving our school community as PAC President this year. For the past three years I have been a part of the PAC executive as the Vice President, and it has been a true pleasure getting to know our amazing school community of families and staff.  In previous years I have run our hot lunch program and led our book fairs, as well as volunteered for many other fundraisers and community events at Meadowbrook. During my time being a parent volunteer and PAC executive I have made some incredible friendships and come to truly cherish all that Meadowbrook represents. 

I am also an actor and a vocalist, and my husband Matt and I often work together on our own creative projects.

I have a wonderful, kindhearted daughter named Coco who is going into grade 5, and a very funny, very friendly son named Shepherd who is going into grade 2. 

I look forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new families. It will be an unconventional school year, but we will do all that we can to keep our school community connected.

The President of the P.A.C. presides over all general and Executive meetings and acts as the signing authority on behalf of the Council.


Vice-President:  Melanie Norris

Hello everyone! While I have enjoyed being an active PAC volunteer for many years now, I am brand new to the role of Vice-President.
My son Michael will be in grade 4 at Meadowbrook this year, and my older son Logan is off to middle school now. My greatest source of joy is my family and my relationship with my partner of 20 years, Jeff. My favourite days involve being active in nature with great friends or family, either trail running, hiking, canoeing, or backcountry camping.
I truly appreciate the opportunity to contribute to the Meadowbrook community and look forward to supporting our school’s fundraising, enrichment, and community-building endeavours in any way I can!

The Vice-President of the P.A.C. assumes the President’s responsibilities and assists the Executive team in performing their duties.

I’m currently a full time political sciences student, so I’m a busy lady! I like Star Wars, video games, karaoke, and cross stitch. I’m most likely the one who will answer any emails you might send to the PAC, so feel free to drop me a line and say hi!

I am a SAHM and the Dpac representative for Meadowbrook Elementry.   As the Dpac rep I go to a monthly meeting with the other Dpac reps in sd43. There they discuss the various things that are going on in the district and the different programs that our community can access.

I also volunteer at hot lunch and run the monthly Treat Day, where we raise funds for our school. Last year we helped raised money for the swings and various other programs.

I like being a part of the Meadowbrook community as people are open to new ideas.
