5 Easy Ways to Share Your School Year on Birmingham Patch
Want to show off what your student organization, PTA or sports team is doing this school year? Post your accomplishments on Patch!
For many students in Birmingham, the day has come. Tuesday is the first day of school for the students at Birmingham Public Schools and the Roeper School (those attending Holy Name School and Our Shepherd Lutheran School started last week).
We know there are great stories happening to Birmingham students every day, and while Birmingham Patch will be following what's happening at schools all year long, we can always use your help. Lucky for you: it's really easy.
Not sure where to start? For all those parents, teachers and students, here's five easy ways you can share your school year on Patch:
1. Add photos to our Pics & Clips gallery
Have a photo? Want to share with your neighbors? Upload it to our Pics & Clips gallery! So whether you attend Berkshire or Roeper, Holy Name or Beverly, or even Detroit Country Day and Brother Rice, share your photos by visiting Pics & Clips on the homepage and clicking "Upload Photos and Videos." It's that easy.
2. Show off achievements with a Patch announcement
Did your student win a scholarship, get accepted to a post-graduation fellowship program or was recognized by the MHSAA? Show off your pride and share your student's achievement — whatever it is — by uploading an announcement. You can even upload a photo with your announcement.

3. Blog about your team, club or organization
