Konstella at Booksin
Beginning with the 2018-2019 school year, BESCA will be using Konstella for all room parent, event, committee, volunteer, and BESCA communications. Konstella is an app built specifically for parent organizations to streamline communications and build community.
What is Konstella?
Konstella is an application that provides a communication platform for school organizations. It is designed to house everything we need in one place, including calendars, announcements, volunteer signups, and much more.
Signup is easy. At the beginning of each school year in August we will invite new families to join Konstella (generally the day that class lists come out). Returning families will retain their existing accounts. If you have joined Booksin mid-year, please Contact Us to get an invitation. You can sign up from your mobile device or on a web browser. Please follow the instructions to create your account and assign your children to your classrooms.

Konstella is a powerful communication tool. Please review BESCA's Konstella Usage Policy.
Another app? Will we still have Shutterfly, Sign Up, Yahoo Groups, and iVolunteer?
Not another app...the ONLY app you need to stay informed! All BESCA announcements, room parent communications, and volunteer sign ups will happen in Konstella, replacing the need for other apps such as Shutterfly, SignUp, Yahoo Groups, and iVolunteer.
Why did we decide to use this app?
Willow Glen Elementary School and Hacienda Elementary School have both been using Konstella for several years and have been very happy with the app. Hammer Montessori is also rolling out the app this year. We looked at multiple vendors that provide similar apps and decided that Konstella was the best fit for our needs. Most importantly, we listened to the community and heard frustration from people who found it difficult to stay on top of the various groups, sites, calendars, etc.
