Peachjar E-flyers

  • As part of our efforts to preserve natural resources and embrace technology, Pasadena Unified has partnered with “Peachjar” to send digital flyers directly to parents.  Parents can stay informed about important activities and events that enhance their child’s life.

    By using Peachjar, PUSD has saved more than 34 million sheets of paper - that’s more than 4,100 trees - and no longer incurs the administrative burden and costs associated with paper flyer distribution.

    Through Peachjar, parents and families to access flyers in three easy ways: online, by email, and in our PUSD app. All school and district flyers are housed online in an “electronic backpack” where they can be filtered, sorted, and saved.

    The Pasadena Unified School District works with schools, school support groups, school organizations and community organizations to make information about not-for-profit activities or services and enrichment opportunities available to families providing their material meets our standards.

    The district makes approved flyers available as electronic flyers through Peachjar for your convenience. All requests from groups or individuals to make information about not-for-profit activities or enrichment services available to the Pasadena Unified School District students will be referred to Peachjar.

    The district does not distribute flyers directly to students.

Peachjar for Parents

  • How do I receive flyers from my child’s school?

    With Peachjar, you can receive flyers in three different ways:

    1. Email
    Upon registering at a Pasadena Unified school, you will receive a welcome email from our service provider (Peachjar) that includes a username and password. This is provided so that you can manage your account and flyer delivery preferences. You don’t need to login to receive or view school digital flyers. Flyers will be automatically sent to your inbox. Don’t want to receive flyers by email? You can unsubscribe at any time.

    2. Online
    To see school-approved digital flyers, simply click the Peachjar button on your school’s website homepage to visit your online “electronic backpack.”

    3. Pasadena USD App

    You can follow “Peachjar” flyers for your school in the Pasadena USD app by selecting the Peachjar feed under the “Settings” icon (Settings -> Follow Schools -> Your School Name -> Peachjar). Then, just select the Peachjar icon in the app to view school-approved flyers in your “electronic backpack.”

    The Peachjar system is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers. Your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose.

Peachjar for Program Providers

  • Organizations seeking to distribute flyers at PUSD schools must register with Peachjar as a "Program Provider," then upload your flyer for distribution to your desired school(s).
