Parental input has provided important support to the development of the Éco-Immersion program.
All parents are invited to participate on James Thomson's Parent Advisory Council (PAC), which is one of the most active in SD 47.
Several programs at James Thomson (e.g.. Farm to School and DIGS) are parent-initiated and outdoor learning-centred and help support many educational activities for students at James Thomson.
A subcommittee of James Thomson's PAC focuses on French language learning resources. Connection to the national association Canadian Parents For French (CPF) help support parents with kids in French Immersion.
