We are excited to launch a new, secure and private parent communications platform for Fletcher families called Konstella. This user-friendly platform offers a website and an iPhone app and an Android app and includes: 

  • PTA and school-wide announcements
  • Classroom updates
  • Event reminders (syncs to calendar)
  • Volunteer sign-up opportunities 
  • Private messaging
  • Searchable directory
  • Social groups and committees
  • Sales and donations 
  • File and photo sharing

To get started, please accept the Konstella invitation that is headed your way from Fletcher PTA on Monday 8/9/2021

Below are two short videos overviews of Konstella

Our hope is that Konstella will streamline and centralize previous means of communication to create a great experience for everyone in our Fletcher community. We look forward to hearing what you think about it!
