backpack "Community Backpack" is an online bulletin board where local non-profit organizations may post fliers announcing special events and programs for children and families. Organizations interested in posting a flier should email it to bkohn@mcas.k12.in.us. (Please send information in .pdf format if possible.)
 
The event should be in or very close to MCAS attendance boundaries, and it should pertain to or involve students. Please suggest a length of time for the flier to be posted. Sorry - no campaign events or ads/offers by for-profit businesses.

Questions? Call (219) 873-2000, ext. 8365

Note: Inclusion of a flier or announcement does not imply an endorsement of a project or program by the Michigan City Area Schools. Non-profit organizations may also make fliers and announcements available at school buildings for distribution from the office, however information will not be sent home with students. For approval of all fliers, contact Communications Director Betsy Kohn at bkohn@mcas.k12.in.us or call (219) 873-2000, ext. 8365.
