Elmer's 1st Day® app and website (the1stday.com) helps parents and teachers document and preserve priceless first-day memories, year after year. Users can snap photos, create albums and slide shows, add songs and borders, and share galleries with friends and family. The free app can be downloaded on iPhone and Android mobile devices directly from the iTunes Store or Google Play.

This back-to-school season, Elmer's continues its commitment to setting students up for success through its partnership with the Kids In Need Foundation, which provides free school supplies to students in need. In just two years, Elmer's will donate 400,000 school supplies to the cause.

In addition to the 1st Day app, Elmer's has created new Parent and Teacher online communities, which provide project ideas, product tips, downloadable resources and more to inspire moments of bonding over creative projects with the children in their lives.

"Elmer's is the same glue most parents grew up with, so for many, back-to-school season naturally elicits many fun and happy memories of using glue," said Lisa Singer, Elmer's senior product manager. "While we love that parents and teachers continue to pick up our School Glue for their students, we are also a valuable resource for school projects and at-home crafts."
