Community Partners

Dear Community Partner:

Elma School District values the relationship we have with your organization and your staff. It is our honor to collaborate with you as we both work to serve our community. We are excited to announce a change to our outside organization flyer distribution process that will allow you to send materials home with students electronically.

Effective immediately, Elma School District has adopted Peachjar as an online solution for sending school and community flyers to parents in a regularly scheduled email. Organizations will work directly with Peachjar to upload their flyer, which will then be sent to ESD for approval before being forwarded to parents.

Peachjar offers this service at no cost to the district; however, there is a fee for community organizations that I believe you will find appropriate for the service you receive. Peachjar charges organizations between $12.50-$25 per school per distribution, depending on the number of credits purchased at one time. In many cases, the fee will be less than the cost of paper, printing and labor, which is currently incurred by both the district and the organization. Best of all, free community events may be promoted for FREE!

Here are a few advantages of using Peachjar:

  •         Flyers will be posted on the school website for an extended period of time;
  •         Full-color, multi-page brochures can be sent to parents at no additional charge;
  •         Parents of middle school and high school students can be more easily reached;
  •         Organizations and parents can easily repost the flyers on social media channels;
  •         Customer service is provided by the company directly to community partners;
  •         Organizations and schools save time, labor costs, printing costs, and trees;
  •         Delivery- and read-rate of the company’s emails exceeds the industry standard;
  •         Organizations can use a “Sign-Up Now” feature that allows parents to register for
            programs and events; and
  •         Credits can be purchased in bulk for greater savings, including by national organizations.

You can learn more about Peachjar and establish an account for your organization by visiting www.peachjar.com. Paper flyers will no longer be distributed to students directly at any of our schools. However, if you wish to provide a handful of flyers to be placed in the school office, this will still be permitted by the schools. 

Public funds should benefit the work we are doing and distributing flyers is not the best use of our district's time or resources. It is incredibly important that ESD maximize every dollar we have to focus on the core mission of our schools and to operate as efficiently as possible. We appreciate your support and cooperation as we utilize this new program, which we believe will positively benefit both ESD and your organization.


Sincerely,
Isabella Cristelli
Communications Specialist
