Reminder: Please Update Your Student’s Classroom on Konstella ASAP
This year, not only will the TBS PTO be utilizing Konstella for all of its communications, but we will be encouraging Room Parents to utilize it for individual classroom parties and organization. Please update your account!
If you already have a Konstella account from RBS or PGS, you must register for TBS by using the same link: https://www.konstella.com/cd/QrGgH. You will be asked to enter your email address. You can then log into Konstella or open the app and you will see TBS added to your list of schools.
If you are a returning 6th grade TBS family, you can log in as normal, and access all applicable schools for your students. You’ll need to update your child(ren’s) classroom(s) for this school year quickly by doing the following:
- Once logged in, click on your name in the upper left-hand corner.
- A drop-down menu will appear. Click on “Your Children.”
- A window will open giving you the option to “change classroom,” “join a classroom,” and “add child”. Click on all that apply and follow prompts to add or change information.
A drop-down list will appear with all classrooms by teacher. Select classroom and click SAVE.
