MPAC notices and website information – where does the information come from?
The content is written by the Event Coordinators and submitted to the MPAC Communications Coordinator by 8:00pm Friday to be included in the week’s website updates.
When is the MPAC website updated?
The website is updated once a week on the weekend. Once updated, the MPAC Communications Coordinator will send out an email inviting you to click on the link in the email to view ‘This Week’. Any information that is no longer relevant is removed and new items are added. Information in other sections on the site such as Events and Programs are updated as well, so it is worth checking the site out once a week.
What is the schedule for the MPAC email?
The MPAC email letting you know that the website updates for ‘This Week’ have been completed is sent out Sunday evenings.
Why are some events in the weekly update and others not?
The content for the MPAC ‘This Week' comes from the Communications Coordinators and is to be submitted by 8:00pm Friday. All Event Coordinators are invited to submit reminders and information including staff, Student Council, Grade 7, and the parents working with the teachers on such things as the Christmas and Spring concerts, choir and library events. However, it is up to these groups to provide the content if they would like it to be included.
Why doesn’t the Communications Coordinator write me email reminders or website pieces?
The Event Coordinator has all the latest up-to-date information on his or her event. Therefore, the Event Coordinator is requested to write their own reminders to ensure that the information being sent out is correct.
Why aren’t all PAC fundraisers for a cause?
As a PAC, we need a certain amount of money each year to cover our ‘operating’ costs or budget lines (e.g. topping up the technology fund, classroom enhancements, etc.). Many of the PAC initiatives are to fund those budget lines. Once these operating costs have been met then events can specify what cause the profits will go to.
