Communication Changes for 2018/19 School Year

We Are Making a Change!

Grout’s PTA is excited to bring Konstella to our school as our primary form of communication with our Grout Community.  Konstella will allow us to streamline all communications from PTA to parents, staff, committees and social groups within our school.  This will be where you can view events, newsletters, updates, volunteer information, parent to parent communications and so much more.

Step 1: Sign up and join your child’s classroom

Once you are added to Konstella, you will have the opportunity to join your child’s Konstella classroom, where you will have the opportunity to communicate directly with your Classroom Parent and other committees that are relevant to your child(ren) at Grout Elementary.

Step 2: Download the App and enjoy all the features

An exciting part of Konstella is the Events feature for both school wide and classroom based.  Konstella will allow parents/guardians to sign up as a volunteer for an event or bring in needed items.

You can also show support for a contest or follow topics that are being discussed by other parents. These conversations can be private or public to the forum and will always be treated with respect and positivity.

You will also be able to download the Konstella app to your phone for the most current updates on the go or you may also rely on the web based program to view at your convenience.

Ultimately, the choice to use this tool is yours. Whether you choose to use Konstella or not, we at the PTA feel confident that this will help increase parental involvement and awareness with the happenings at Grout. We look forward to having a greater level of communication with our parents and staff.
