Initially the PTA started using MemberHub. The idea was to help the Room Parents get classroom communications organized to not only help the teacher but connect all the parents in the classroom
Then, using the Hub Trees feature, Underwood created a hierarchy of communication hubs: one for the entire school, one for each grade level and one for an every classroom. Now parents and staff can communicate on any level as necessary. The various group hubs are setup to ensure everyone is getting the information that they should. The PTA sends out occasional announcements and reminders, but now room parents are sent weekly reminders to share with their classroom in addition to classroom specific announcements.
Parents and teachers can now use the hubs they have access to send emails and text messages, create signup sheets, share photos and files. The school directory is accessible online through MemberHub and is also available on the iPhone app which makes it easy to connect on the go!
