The Quake is the weekly, electronic newsletter from the Quakertown Community School District. It highlights the people and activities in QCSD, where great things happen every day!
On Fridays, Community Relations Coordinator Ricki Stein internally email blasts The Quake to approximately 1,000 employees. Approximately 3,000 parents, community residents and well-wishers receive the email blasts from firstname.lastname@example.org, through the QConnect.
Many of the same stories appear in video format, produced by high school students, and broadcast over Comcast 968 and Verizon 34 in the Quakertown area. Thanks to a partnership with Quakertown Borough, student work also showcases borough activities on Comcast 22 and 853 and Fios 37.
Anyone with story ideas for The Quake or QCSD-TV News can send Ricki an email at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Quake's predecessor, the QCommuniqué, received awards and recognition from PenSPRA and NSPRA, the state and national professional organizations for school public relations.
