The 2022/2023 year saw the unexpected removal of the old wooden Lower Playground play structure. Surplus from decreased spending during the pandemic and exceptional community involvement in events and fundraisers allowed the MPAC to fund a new play structure set to be completed Fall 2023. This year, the MPAC will be looking to tackle additional improvement projects on top of the existing classroom and program enhancements. To participate in the conversation on how to spend MPAC funds, attend our meetings held for an hour once a month.
Our fundraising goal for this year is $37,300. The detailed MPAC financial statements can be viewed here.
Our MPAC budget allows the school to offer our children additional resources for the classrooms that go beyond the basic needs of the Ministry mandated curriculum. It provides our children with more opportunities for hands on activities and helps to improve student engagement in the classroom.
Our plans for this year will ensure that the MPAC continues to provide the same benefits and services that you've been accustomed to. As well, our operating budget always has the future in mind as we continue to allocate funds to reserves for improvements to both playground and technology.
If each family donated at least $30 per student, we would easily reach our goal. These enhancements are not possible without the support of the entire school community. Together we can enrich our children's education and school experience.
