We wanted to take this opportunity to tell you more about myschoolanywhere and how we will be using it this school year.
At the end of the 2015-16 school year, the Silverbrook PTO adopted an online directory management program called myschoolanywhere. We hope that you received our emails and were able to set-up your account.
We have since realized that this tool is robust and offered the chance to combine several aspects of the PTO's online endeavors into one space. We hope this will make it easier to find the information you are looking for!
Here's how we plan to use this site this year:
1 | Online Directory
As we started last year, we will use myschoolanywhere to maintain our online directory. Families have the option to remove their information or limit what is published to other families. This awesome database of information will make it significantly easier for you to get in touch with other parents and families from child's class as well as allow for real-time changes not possible with a print directory.
2 | Online Store
To eliminate the need to direct you to multiple online sites each with their own passwords, families of Silverbrook will be able to do all their shopping related to the school's events and fundraisers from this one secure area. You will be able to track your purchases as well, and once we connect all students to their teachers, this will make delivery of purchased items a breeze.
3 | Volunteer Sign-ups
Over the past several years, we have all gotten comfortable with online signups for volunteer hours. We were excited to see that myschoolanywhere also included this functionality both because it eliminates extra operating costs and also ensures ease of use to our families. From your one myschoolanywhere account, you can see where the school needs help, track your signups, and make any changes!
To get started, please confirm your information in the email you should receive shortly. This will allow you to make any changes necessary to your account's information and assign your child's new teacher. Then, you can login online or download the mobile app!
If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org! We look forward to a great year!
