The Fremont PTA wants to help streamline and centralize communication to create a great experience for everyone at Fremont. We are requesting that you join our new secure and private parent communications platform, Konstella, to stay up-to-date on classroom and school-wide announcements, events, sign-up opportunities and to be part of a searchable directory.
To join Konstella, go to www.konstella.com and select Fremont Elementary from the list of schools to join. This will send a request to an administrator who can approve registration for Fremont parents.
Once you are on our school’s platform, you will be able to view the classroom and school calendar, school-wide and classroom events, announcements, volunteer sign-up sheets, join committees, and so much more.
We recommend that you also download the Konstella iPhone/Android app, to stay connected with our school even while on the go.
Parents who are registered for Konstella receive notifications from the school and for PTA and PAC sponsored events through Konstella. They can also communicate with each other regarding school events and activities, and learn about the many ways they can contribute to the community through committees and volunteer openings.
Parents get information about classroom activities, reminders and opportunities to participate through Konstella. They can also send emails to parents in their child’s room or chat with other parents via the smartphone app.
Pictures can be shared school wide or just with classrooms or committees.
You can sync Fremont events to your personal calendar two ways:
1. Sync the school calendar from the website here at https://www.gusd.net/Page/1047
2. Sync your Konstella calendar, which includes school-wide events and also classroom events for your children and volunteer activities you’ve signed up for. When looking at the Konstella calendar, click “Sync to My Calendar”.
