Five Ways to Help Patch Cover Your School News

Five things principals, educators, coaches, PTA members, parents and students could do to take advantage of Kings Park Patch this school year.

School starts this week across Kings Park School District. Patch will be there to cover back-to-school moments, but we can’t do it without you.

To make sure you get the most out of Patch this school year, we invite you to get active in the news-gathering process.

There are five things you can do to make sure your school and its students get all the coverage they deserve from Patch:

1. Tell about big events and accomplishments: If you have a school-related story idea you’d like us to cover, then let us know about it! Send us a news tip with details and the person(s) we should contact for more information about the story idea. E-mail jennifer.sloat@patch.com.

2. Add your event listings: Have an upcoming band performance? Is your school hosting an open house? Just add the news to our events calendar. We invite you to add calendar events for your school, its extracurricular activities, clubs, PTA and more - for free!

3. Post your announcements: Want to let us know about a student, school or teacher accomplishment? Let everyone hear the news by posting your own announcements and photos. Just go to the Announcements section a click on the Add an Announcement button. It's easy and free!

4. Add your photos to our galleries: Throughout the school year we’ll be out gathering lots of photos of students and their activities. Be sure to add your own photos to our Kings Park Pics and Clips and share your memories with everyone. We might even feature them right here on Patch, and they could also be featured on WPIX during the 5 p.m. weekday news broadcast.

5. Sign up for the newsletter: Want to find out what’s happening in area schools? Keep up with Patch every morning by signing up for our newsletter. We’ll mail you the top headlines every morning.

And if that's not enough, then you could also easily become a Local Voices blogger on Kings Park Patch, and share your school's news, photos, accomplishments and sports results directly with fellow readers and residents on a regular basis.

What is going on with the buses ? 3 kids on a seat . Overlaoding a bus, getting back from school an hour after school is out. Who is the person or persons behind this fiasco. Have they ever gotten on a bus. Put 3 kids on a seat with backpacks and you can not move. I thought we had Educators working here, Where did they get their education ?? Open your eyes, there is a BIG problem here, seemed like last year everything was running smooth, we had a great bus driver who made the children feel comfortable always smiled, and even talked to the parents made us feel good that our children was safe.Where is he now, is he still here? I know some parents said they were going to send letters about this driver on how good he was, what do they do put letters thru the shredder, and get rid of the good drivers. When your child enjoys the bus driver and everyone feels safe , it is good to hope to have the same driver. he knows their names, and more about the children and he had a HEART, he dressed for all of the holidays, gave them all something at Christmas and the end of the school year.I know we miss him here on this Bus Stop and the others in this area. If any of you have this bus driver Tony used to be bus # 95 enjoy his smile and his love for your children and safety for everyone. His is GREAT and we miss him dearly. Tom Scalli

Ask Dr. Agruso. She is great at putting her own agenda before the well being of the students. She has no issue using district resources to protect her position. Ask some people from her old district.
