If you are incorporating a public event, such as an art exhibition or performance in your elected official(s)’ visit, invite parents,teachers, administrators and community members to participate. Methods of getting the word out might include:
· Create a flyer about your event. If possible, at least one week prior to your event, send copies of the flyer home with all of your students to give to their parents, put them in teacher and staff mailboxes, post them around your school and in community buildings such as libraries and recreation centers. (See Sample Flyer )
· Share the flyer and press release with the school and local arts organizations. Ask them to post the information on their website, through social media and/or to include it in a newsletter or article in the school newspaper or other publications.
· Share the flyer on facebook, twitter and other online networks. Ask others to do the same.
