Konstella

West School uses Konstella, a communication tool for parents and teachers.   In addition to a very helpful calendar,  Konstella is also used for sign ups and tracking volunteer hours.  It is also a convenient tool to access the school directory or message other parents.  

We ask all parents to join Konstella (for free) so as not to miss out on any important information.

New families should have received a request to join Konstella on 8/17.

If you did not receive an email, you can do one of two things:  go to www.konstella.com and request to join West School; OR, you can email westschoolcommunications@gmail.com and request an email invite be sent to them to join.  You can also register via mobile app using the registration code 1ygGT9.  See the attached flier for additional details and a scanable QR code.

This is our second year using Konstella so it's still a work in progress for everyone.  We appreciate feedback and suggestions to ensure it remains a valuable tool.

There is also a mobile application you can download on iTunes.
