Dear Hoover Parents,
Welcome back to another exciting school year! As most of you must be aware, we use Konstella for all PTA and PTA related communication. It is the one stop point to find out what is happening in your child’s classroom, the whole school, various event and volunteering signups or simply to connect and share with other parents in our school. Pls. read below, to refresh yourselves about Konstella.
1. For those of you who are already registered on Konstella:
Please log in to your Konstella account and update your child's classroom. To do this:
- log in to your account,
- then go to your name tab (found on the left menu on the home page) and
- then to the Your Children-- Your child will already be featured.
- Use the Change Classroom to add the current classroom your child is in.
This will help to place you and your child(ren) in the right classroom for this school year.
2. For those who are not yet registered on Konstella:
We request you to please consider doing it, so that your child(ren) can be placed in the correct classroom and you won't miss out on any room communications, that will soon start. To do this:
- New parents - Use the link in the Invitation email that has been sent to you asking you to join in.
- Older parents - go to the "Register at Konstella" Button at the end of any email (even this one) that you have received and click on it. You will then receive another email. Once you receive that email, please click the "Join" button, and add your name and create a password. You will then be prompted to add a child. Please fill in your child’s details …and viola! you will be registered.
3. We are doing away with Printing the hard copy of the classroom/ and School directory. Why?
Since we are green and have on it all on Konstella, electronically. Konstella is very secure and private. There is no need to worry. Other parents can see only what you wish to show.
- To update your name, password and other personal information – Please go to your name on the left menu and click Account Settings ->Basic.
- To update your Privacy settings, go to your name on the left menu and click on Account Settings -> Privacy
- You can to the Notifications tab and manage how you want to receive the notifications as well.
Some additional features worth noting:
- Parents of a particular room can communicate with each other or select people via the Private messaging feature, or join Social Groups (found under the menu bar on the left, on the Home Page) or communicate to the whole school via the Discussions tab (found on the Home page, under the More tab).
- Also, for those who want Konstella on the go…download the Konstella iPhone/ Android App – to stay connected with our school J

Thanks very much,
