When I was PTA Chair we signed up to PTAsocial. Excellent communications and planning tool. It made a massive difference to the volunteering culture at our school - people were much more willing to help once they understood what was involved!
Yes. We have recently launched it. As the chair oft kids PTA I think it is superb!!!! I can't rate it highly enough. We (the PTA and form reps) trialled it for 4 weeks and then rolled it out. In under 2 weeks we have 76% of the parents signed up. Great way to communicate direct to parents in boxes. Online ticket sales has proved v popular. Ease of seeing up group messages. Plus lots more ..:
Yes! Both my daughters & sons school are using Classlist. It's great, I really like it as I can easily contact other parents in their classes. My son is in Year 7 so it was an easy way to get to know the other parents & to sort out lift shares or bus buddies. By Year 7 you are not going to meet parents at the school gate so this was fantastic. Also if I'm looking for a babysitter I can ask other parents for recommendations on Classlist .
