Peachjar Electronic Flyers

Peachjar Electronic Flyers Example

Francis Howell School District is always looking for ways to save taxpayer dollars and still improve convenience for parents and students. Both goals are achieved with the Peachjar flyer distribution system. FHSD delivers school information and approved flyers from community organizations electronically through Peachjar. These eflyers are emailed directly to you, and can also be viewed by clicking the Peachjar button on the home page of your school’s website.

This environmentally friendly initiative saves our schools tons (literally!) of paper, and saves thousands of dollars on copying costs. On top of that, posting school flyers in this electronic backpack removes a significant administrative burden from teachers, office staff, and volunteers. Last school year alone, the District saved nearly 10 million sheets of paper by using Peachjar. That means that FHSD and its parents and students together saved more than 1,100 trees! Better yet, with just an email and a click, parents can now get their students in touch with programs meant to develop their children’s skills in various subjects and activities. In addition, Peachjar is another effective channel that improves communication between school and home, with information about everything – from school activities to sports camps.

If we have your email address on file, then no action is required on your part. If your child has moved to a new school in the District, you should receive eflyers from the new school. If you have not provided your email address, please do so to avoid missing important opportunities and information (go to www.peachjar.com, and click the “Sign Up” button). For parents’ convenience, FHSD has a page on the District website where you can view all approved flyers.

Peachjar also has a helpful Frequently Asked Questions section (with tabs for schools, parents, and program providers). Info on how to set up your notification preferences, login troubleshooting, etc., can be found there.

Peachjar has some new features this year to better serve parents. On many flyers, parents will be able to add events to their phone’s calendar or view event maps (if the uploader adds this feature to the flyer), download as a PDF, and share on Facebook and Twitter.

This system is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers, coming from your child’s (or children’s) school (or schools) and PTOs, as well as outside organizations from around the community and beyond – all with the benefit of the student’s overall growth in mind. However, many programs are not affiliated with nor endorsed by FHSD; and we ask that you use your best judgment in choosing the program(s) in which you enroll your student.

Your privacy is also a major concern for FHSD, so your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose. Thank you for supporting our efforts to ensure parents are well-informed about school programs, activities, and events, as well as those offered by the community. To ensure smooth delivery of eFlyers, we suggest you add “school@peachjar.com” to your email contacts. When you receive your first eflyer, be sure to click “always display images” for the best viewing experience.
