Promote North Riverside

Doing something special in your classroom? Is your team planning a cool activity or lesson? Has one fo your students accomplished something academically in school or outside school that deserves recognition? Well if so let’s get some KISD Covereage! The KISD Communications/PR Deparment are looking for fresh, unique, stories to pass on to the newspapers. You see many of these stories in the District Wide Communicator that goes out on Wednesdays. People do not know what we are doing unless we promote it. Common celebrations like the first day of school, Veteran’s Day, 100th day of school, are usually covered throughout the district. We are looking for things that stand out, are different, will catch attention.

If you have something like that email janice.freeman@kelelrisd.net and she will fill out a PR form for you. Send as much information regarding the event as you can. Remember your who? What? Where? When? How? Why? Information. Usually to get coverage or someone to come out and take pictures you would have to give about two weeks notice. If something immediate is occuring snap a picture and send to Janice or Oliver. We may be able to put it on our Facebook page. If you have any questions just ask Janice.

Febraruay 23rd is our day to provide a Snapshot of the Day to Communications and they will feature it on the district Twitter page. If you have something cool we can capture and add that day ( it HAS to be from this day) let us know.
