Whether this is your child's first year, 12th year or first day with a new style, we know that a lot of thought goes into the look on the first day of school.
Your kids are going back to school and we know you're snapping those photos. Patch wants to see them and share them with your neighbors.
Sign in to your Patch account, if you're not already signed in. If you don't have an account yet, click "Join" at the top right of any page.
Below the banner photo on the homepage are two columns: a wide "News & Blogs" column and a narrower "Boards" column. Click inside the text box that reads "Make an announcement, speak your mind, or sell something".
Click the "Add photos/videos" button to upload one from your computer.
Type in the Title, body text and "Write a caption" boxes to describe the photo and add context, if you want.
In the "Pick a Board" drop-down menu, choose "Announcements".
Click "Post Now". You're done!
Photo posts are welcome anytime in the Boards. Patch users are also always welcome to post photos in our blog section; scroll past the top news stories on the homepage and click the green "+ Start blogging" button.
