MPAC newsletters and website information – where does the information come from?
The content is written by the Executive Team and MPAC Committee Members and submitted to the MPAC Communications Coordinator by 8:00pm Friday to be included in the week’s website updates and weekly Sunday newsletter.
When is the MPAC website updated?
The website is updated once a week on the weekend. 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 occasionally.
What is the schedule for the MPAC email?
The MPAC newsletter is sent out Sunday evenings (or Monday evenings during long weekends).
Why are some events in the weekly update and others not?
The content for the MPAC website comes from the Communications Coordinator and is to be submitted by 8:00pm Friday. All are invited to submit reminders and information, including staff, Student Council, and the parents aiding teachers on events such as Christmas and Spring concerts, choir and library events. However, it is up to these groups to provide the content they would like it to be included. We ask that content submitted to the newsletter be limited to Montroyal Elementary activities and programs. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any requests for content inclusion.
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 items. Once these operating costs have been met then events may specify a cause for profits to benefit.
