Editorial and Submission Guidelines
eMinders are distributed via email each Thursday during the school year to all
registered users. To register for eMinders, click here.
All eMinders content will be added to the IES-PTO webpage (click here to view).
Additionally submitted PTO eMinders content will be included in IES Eminders.
All eMinder content should pertain directly to PTO events and programs at Ithan
Elementary School or be a Radnor Township School District program of interest
to the entire PTO community. Personal opinion pieces or events not related to
the PTO or RTSD will not be included. Click here for instructions on submitting
non-PTO events for posting on RTSD’s Community Bulletin Board.
All announcements that you would like included in the eMinders and posted on
the IES-PTO webpage should be as short and concise as possible.
Handouts or flyers should be developed to go along with your submission if you
would like to include additional information or if you need to include sign up
Handouts or flyers should be attached to your eMinder submission email (see
Submission Details below) and be in Microsoft Word or PDF format.
Links can be made to other content already on the internet, the IES-PTO
webpage or subpages. Please indicate desired links in the submission email.
Approval and Review
Before sending any information to be included in eMinders, all eMinder text and
attachments must be reviewed and approved by the PTO president and
Ithan principal for appropriateness of content.
When submitting, you should indicate in your email that approval has been
received by the PTO president and Ithan principal so that the webmasters can
proceed with posting the information as quickly as possible.
After receiving approval, send your eMinders text to the Ithan Webmasters via
email to eMinderMamas@gmail.com.
eMinders must be submitted by noon on Tuesday to be included in Thursday’s
eMinder (for example, an email received by Tuesday, September 4th will be
included in the eMinder sent on Thursday, September 6th).
Any emails sent after noon on Tuesday will be included in the following week’s
eMinder. Additionally, submissions that are incomplete or not approved may be
delayed until the complete submission is received.
When the eMinder information is submitted via email, please specify which
weeks the eMinder should be posted (starting and ending Thursday). If no start
date is specified, the current eMinder week will be assumed.
If you have any questions, please email the IES-PTO webmasters at
eMinderMamas@gmail.com. They would be happy to help!
