Parents Achieving Community (PAC) - Dallas

PAC is what its name says… parents achieving community by working together to support our children, our teachers, our administration, and our school.



Every parent at UME is a part of PAC, but its current Leadership Team consists of nine moms and one dad, the Parent School Board Representative Drew Grace.  The 2020-2021 team members are …


Kristin Killingsworth, President Takiyah McMillian
Lisa Burleson, Vice President Ashley Lynn
Skye Tompkins, Treasurer Demetri Martin
Candace Hart, Secretary Laci Pool
Rosa Yanz  



As parents, we all want to foster in our students a life-long curiosity to learn and help them become kids with character.  We all want to create a sense of community among parents so that our scholars are supported at home and at school, and we all want our teachers and administrators to be equipped to do and be their best.  Here’s how we do that.


We fundraise.

All of the money we raise goes directly back to the school—whether it be for the teachers, the students, or the parents. Some of our primary fundraisers from past years are listed below.


Uniform Resale Shop Dallas Mavericks Ticket Raffle
Spirit Nights Family Movie Night
Carnival SchoolKidz School Supply Kits
