The PTSA Flyer Program: In partnership with the school district, the Canandaigua PTSA makes it possible to provide informational flyers directly to students and parents on a timely basis. PTSA Flyers are online! You can check anytime for updates. Flyers are posted on this site immediately upon approval. Flyer information is also utilized in the monthly PTSA e-newsletter.

Check out this month's flyers here! Find them by scrolling to the bottom of the latest PTSA Newsletter.

PTSA continues to recognize the high value of community and family involvement in the growth and education of our youth. Enrichment opportunities are a great community asset. The PTSA Flyer concept was introduced to enable effective and inexpensive promotion/marketing of these activities. Flyers are posted in an electronic format, available for browsing and printing directly from the site. This helps cut costs and reduces paper waste.

All flyers must be produced and made available in an electronic format by the submitting organization (see below). This is a great way for non-profits and school-related organizations to reach students and parents directly with information about upcoming activities. Posting occurs as soon as each flyer is approved by the District Community Relations office. Please plan accordingly.

Important Notes:
  1. Only non-profit and/or school-related organizations may participate.
  2. Flyers in electronic format may be any size. But they must be in either Word or Adobe .pdf format.
  3. Note the schedule posted in the district calendar monthly and plan accordingly for proper lead time for your event. No exceptions will be made if submissions are late.
  4. All materials to be posted must first be approved by the school district. Contact Community Relations - Andy Thomas: (585)396-3714.
  5. Materials submitted for posting should be focused on general information such as the announcement of a meeting, a sign up for future activities, or a special event. These materials cannot be solicitations, proselytizing in nature, or designed for any commercial purpose.
  6. Submit your electronic flyer to:

PTSA - Heather Holman at
CCSD - Andy Thomas at

We hope that you find these procedures helpful. PTSA and the school district thank you for your support of our community’s youth.
