5 Ways Lakewood Patch Can Help You & Your Student
Use our free tools — like the calendar, announcements page and photo gallery — to interact with your school's community.
It's a new school year, and that means new class schedules, clubs and after-school sports practices.
At Lakewood Patch, we know it's tough for parents to stay involved, juggling PTO news, soccer game photos and Destination Imagination awards. Let us help you.
Take a tour of some of our features that can help you interact with your school community and have stress-free, happy school year.
1. Announcements | Did you know we have a free bulletin board for all your school announcements? Whether you're looking for volunteers for the latest PTO project or want to tell everyone about the debate team's latest win, we want you to post it here. Email Colin.McEwen@patch.com the link and she'll even feature it front-and-center on the Lakewood Patch homepage.
2. Events | Post your call out for Lakewood residents to sport their finest black and yellow to the football home opener, or share your garage sale on our free calendar. Just like Announcements, email Colin.McEwen@patch.com the link and she'll even feature it front-and-center on the Lakewood Patch homepage.
3. Local Voices | We love to, but we can't make it to every game. But we still want to know about it! Write a little about the wining goal — or just give us the final score — from your daughter's soccer game using our Local Voices tool. Or maybe you have some thoughts on the schedule changes or cafeteria menu at Lakewood City Schools. Tell us all about it! All of our Local Voices submissions are featured on the front page of our site.
4. Pics & Clips | Got photos from an event you'd like to share? Just upload them here! We look for new user-submitted photos from this gallery to feature all over our site every day, but email Colin.McEwen@patch.com the link and she'll be sure to feature it front-and-center on the Lakewood Patch homepage.
5. Newsletter | The best way to keep up with school news: we won't share your email address, but we will send you the latest headlines every morning, right to your inbox. It's like getting the daily newspaper, except it's all about Lakewood, it's paperless, and did we mention it's free?
