Are These Materials Editable?

Yes, we have created an editable version of the flyer in both color and black & white options. You may choose to add your school colors, contact information, links, district logos, or other information.

Here are the steps you must complete: 

  1. Click the appropriate link below and go to Canva, you must create an account if you don't already have one (it's free). 
  2. IMPORTANT: Before you start editing, you must make a copy of the items to avoid multiple edits to the same image.
    •  Go to the upper left hand corner and select "File".
