Put Patch to Work For Your School

In our first "Patch 101" lesson, we share how principals, teachers and parents can use Patch to spread the word about what's happening at their schools.

Do you want to get the word out about the great happenings right here in Paulding’s schools? Put Patch to work for your school this year.

Is your PTA having a meeting, fundraiser or fall festival? Post it as an event on Dallas-Hiram Patch for free. Navigate to the Events page and click “Add an Event” on the right side of the page. Tell us all the details about your upcoming event, then click “post my event” at the bottom of the page.

After your meeting or festival don’t forget to blog about it. Clicking this link will navigate you to the new blog post form where you can recap how much money you raised, post photos and share the fun you had. Blogs with photos can be included on Dallas-Hiram Patch’s homepage and are sometimes featured in Patch’s daily newsletter

Share your school’s triumphs with a Patch announcement. Did the robotics team take state? Has a standout student earned a scholarship? Brag about it on Patch! Simply click the Announcement option under the News tab on the homepage. On the right side of the screen you’ll see the button “Add an Announcement.” This will you take you to Patch’s new announcement form. When you’re ready, click “publish my announcement” and it will go live to the site immediately.

Be sure to bookmark this page for future reference, and as always feel to free email Patch Editor Jon Gargis at jon.gargis@patch.com if you have any questions.
