In the past, our schools were asked to send home numerous flyers at the request of community organizations. Flyers were often stuffed into students’ backpacks, and were both an administrative and environmental burden. At our central offices, we received hundreds of requests from organizations looking for help to promote their event or offering. When it became too much to handle, and as part of our efforts to be more environmentally friendly, we streamlined community sharing of information and moved to a digital flyer delivery system – Peachjar eFlyers.
With our Peachjar eFlyer program, community information is available in three ways.
- Sent directly as an email to parents who have subscribed to notifications.
- Accessed on school websites by clicking the Peachjar eFlyer button on the home page.
- Accessed through our district app by clicking ‘community information’.
Each year, our schools will save tons of paper and reduce copy costs. In addition, paperless delivery of school flyers removes a significant administrative burden for teachers, office staff, and volunteers. School and school district-approved eFlyers will keep you informed about upcoming school activities, programs, and events. And, our children’s backpacks will be a little lighter, too!
Trillium Lakelands District School Board supports the efforts of community groups, and organizations that sponsor activities of an educational nature for students by distributing materials electronically via Peachjar. As a community member, you need to register for an account with Peachjar. Information from outside organizations will no longer be posted in school newsletters.
1. Visit www.peachjar.com .
2. Register as an enrichment or community organization.
3. Upload your flyer for approval – See below!
If all activities offered by your organization are free:
If all of your activities are at no charge to the community, then create an account, and contact:
and she will make sure that you are considered a free account with Peachjar.
If activities with your organization require a participation fee:
Community organizations are subject to Peachjar’s service fee when they post a flyer to promote an activity or event with a participation fee. Peachjar’s service fee also applies to activities that are held without charge but may lead to a participation in a program or activity with a fee. (eg. a flyer for a free soccer try-out to encourage registration). If you have concerns about meeting the costs, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we may be able to assist on a case-by-case basis. See pricing details on the Peachjar website.
If some activities with your organization have a participation fee and some are free activities:
Some organizations offer free programs or events as well as activities or events with a service fee. If this is the case, the easiest option is to create two accounts with Peachjar – one will be used for your fee-based activities, the other for your free events. Once you have created the two accounts, contact
so that she can adjust one of your accounts to not charge a service fee when you post.
PLEASE NOTE – we do not accept flyers to be sent out to parents from for-profit organizations unless it is from the school for a fundraiser or other school activity.
For more information on the types of eflyers we approve, see our eflyer guidelines below.
Parents, please visit www.Peachjar.com to register. This system is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers. You even have the option to have these eflyers delivered right to your inbox! Your email address will never be shared or used for any other purpose, and you can unsubscribe at any time.
If you have children in multiple schools, you can add more schools by logging in, selecting “My Account”, then “User Settings” and “Add School”.
This “green” initiative will provide parents with better access to information about school programs, activities, and events.
Thank you for your support!
