Try this at the welcome meeting to get the new intake signed up in one go…
One of our lovely ambassadors shared this top tip: In the middle of our PTA intro talk we ask the parents to get out their phones and download the Classlist app there and then.
We walk them through signing up and by the time they leave they are connected to nearly all the parents in their class – including the Dads too. They really appreciate it and it helps us, the PTA, to contact them too.
We suggest: Add a ‘New Starters 2018’ class so the parents can join up even before they know what class their child will be in.
