I’m excited to announce that our PTA is launching a site with Konstella. This is a website and App very similar to Bloomz.
Our school will continue to use Bloomz just as last year, for important announcements and messages from staff and teachers about what is happening in the classroom and at school. Bloomz signups will be used by teachers and PTA for simple volunteer opportunities at school.
Konstella will be our Parent Communication Portal. You can share contact info or send messages to other parents that have opted to share their info. Join discussion channels for your grade level, PTA and planning committees, or social groups such as afterschool activities or other interests. There is an upload limit on photos and files but each channel can link to a google drive.
Each of our PTA committees will be able to use Konstella signups to make it more transparent to new parents what types of at-home tasks we might need some help with. We can also use it as a task management system to better stay on top of our pre-event planning and deadlines. You can join a committee as a member and just follow discussion or give us valuable feedback even if you can’t commit to tasks.
Please take a moment to browse the attached committee guide to learn more about the committees that keep our PTA operating. Our PTA has been through many changes and we need more participation in committees to continue our traditional activities or to look into replacing them with others. You can join a committee on Konstella as a “committee member” and just participate in online discussions or assist program chairs via email. There are so many things that can be done from home and in the evening.
