Moving from paper flyers to digital flyers
Like many school districts across the nation, Bellevue Union School District has discovered that the old practice of sending paper flyers home in student backpacks is not as effective in today’s digital world. As part of our ongoing commitment to be more environmentally friendly, and to ensure parents have quick and easy access to important information, we are transitioning to a digital flyer delivery system.
What is Peachjar?
Peachjar sends approved flyers directly to parents’ email inboxes, and posts them online on all school websites and on the district's website. With Peachjar, parents can easily find and view flyers, and take action immediately to sign up for activities and events. All flyers may be accessed by clicking on the Peachjar button.
What are the benefits to using digital flyers?
- keeps parents informed about school activities and community events/resources, and allows them to register, sign up immediately
- saves trees by reducing the amount of paper printed
- reduces copy costs by thousands of dollars
- removes the administrative burden from teachers, office staff, and volunteers of making copies and stuffing backpacks
