This is one of our oldest modules in Spike@School. We realised early on that schools needed an easy way to add and maintain the Newsletters on their website. You can add as many Newsletter Sets to your site as you want. You could have one for the main school newsletter and one for your class newsletter if you have one.
You can add a Newsletter Set by choosing Newsletter Set from the Add a New: menu and clicking Add in the Construction Zone. You'll get this page:

Once you've uploaded a newsletter, you never have to delete it because Spike@School will automatically archive it according to the year it was uploaded.

There is a free PDF converter available to convert your files. It works like a printer, so you can print your newsletter to the PDF printer and it will save it as a PDF. Once you've added your newsletter you'll be able to view it on the public side of your website like so:
It's that simple! Your secretary will love how easy it is to do this!
