5 Ways Solon 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.

5 Ways Solon Patch Can Help You & Your Student

It's a new school year, and that means new class schedules, clubs and after-school sports practices.

At Solon Patch, we know it's tough for parents to stay involved, juggling PTA news, soccer game photos and awards. Let us help you.

Take a tour of some of our features that can help you interact with the Solon Schools 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 PTA project or want to tell everyone about the debate team's latest win, we want you to post it here.

2. Events | Post your call out for Solon residents to wear white to the home football game, or share your garage sale on our free calendar.

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 winning goal — or just give us the final score — from your kids' sports games using our Local Voices tool. Or maybe you have some thoughts on a schedule change or cafeteria menu at the schools. Tell us 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.

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 Solon, it's paperless, and did we mention it's free?  Just click here to sign up!
