You might consider the PTA newsletter as well. As a former editor of my
son's elementary school newsletter, we were usually VERY interested in
anything like this. In our area, every family, whether members of the
PTA or not, got a newsletter, so we got universal coverage and since they
were handed out to the students to carry home it was very inexpensive.
Your PTA may be different, of course.
