The Mandarin Advisory Committee (MAC) is a volunteer committee of parents of students in the Mandarin dual language (MDL) program at Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools (CHCCS). It is a subsection of the Glenwood PTA and serves the interests of MDL at Glenwood Elementary and beyond, be that at Phillips Middle School or wherever Glenwood MDL graduates continue their Mandarin learning at CHCCS.

MAC works hand-in-hand with the Glenwood PTA, Glenwood administrators, and CHCCS administrators to support MDL parents, MDL teachers, and MDL students and to advocate for the MDL program to the Chapel Hill and Carrboro communities, the CHCCS Board of Education, and beyond.

Additionally, MAC participates in community events, promotes the program to the public, and conducts fundraisers for the program.


Please feel free to contact MAC, at GLMAC.chair @ gmail [dot] com!


The next MAC meeting is Wednesday November 14, 6–7:30 pm, in the Glenwood cafeteria. MAC meetings are open to all friends of MDL! Childcare is provided.
