New for the 2018-19 School Year: Konstella – A Centralized Online Communications Platform

This year, we will be utilizing an online site (and free mobile app) called Konstella to help manage communications from the PTO, as well as support announcements and events as requested by the TBS administration. It has transformed the way other schools in our district communicate, and with time, will be THE best way to stay up to date with all TBS PTO-related activity.

We already have more than 50% of TBS families registered on Konstella – thank you!

If you haven’t had an opportunity to register yet, we ask that you do so as soon as possible via the following link: https://www.konstella.com/cd/QrGgHH

You will be asked to enter your email address to begin the process.  If you already have a Konstella account from last year, you can log in as normal, and access all applicable schools for your students.  If you are new to Konstella, you will receive an email with a link to complete registration.

As a start, the TBS Room Parent volunteer sign-up is hosted on Konstella. But as the year progresses, we’ll be transitioning to this tool to distribute our weekly TBS Post, to manage all Room Parent-led, individual class announcements and parties, as well as larger, PTO-led events and volunteer opportunities. In addition, sign-ups for after-school extracurricular activities will move to Konstella. A centralized calendar and family directory are also available on Konstella.  As a reminder, there will be no printed directory this year, so it is important to get your contact info listed on Konstella.

For now, our weekly TBS PTO POST will be sent from the main office via School Messenger.  But over the coming weeks, we will be transitioning it to Konstella.  Additionally, all information will also be posted on our website at: www.thompsonbrookpto.org. And please follow us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/ThompsonBrookPTO).

To ensure you receive all future communications, please add konstella.com to your email program’s safe list. Within Konstella, you can adjust your notification settings and may choose to install the free app on your mobile device. Please note that if you turn off email and phone notifications, you must log-in to Konstella online or via the app to stay connected to all the announcements from the PTO and Room Parents.

If you have any questions about using Konstella, please contact Erika Evanko at epevanko@gmail.com.
