UMCS Online Communications

 

 

1) Our public website:

www.urbanmontessori.org

This is the public-facing part of our website, which contains information about our school’s mission and philosophy, admissions procedures, fundraising opportunities, and a blog that promotes our school to interested families and donors.

 

2) Our Classroom Communities are on Konstella:

https://www.konstella.com/app

 

3) Our CALENDAR:

http://www.urbanmontessori.org/school_calendar/

 

This calendar is updated frequently, so check back often for the latest info about events, committee meetings, etc. Google Calendar users may click the “+Google” button in the bottom-right corner to have events automatically added to your personal calendar.

 

4) Our PUBLIC Social Media Pages:

 

https://www.facebook.com/UrbanMontessori

https://twitter.com/UrbanMontessori

 

Similar to the public pages on the school website, these social media pages are for communications that reach a broader audience of interested families and funders and other communities who care about what we do.

 Social media users are encouraged to like/follow these pages/feeds and engage in the conversations that happen there.

 

5) Our PRIVATE Facebook group: 

https://www.facebook.com/groups/umcsfamilies/ 

Please note: this is NOT an official UMCS communications group and participation is optional. Parents and caregivers of current students as well as current Faculty and Staff at UMCS are welcome to contribute to the conversation that happens there.

To join the group, visit the URL above and click the “Join Group” button. If your Facebook name does not match your name in the school database, or if you have not yet registered on the school website (as described above) you may experience a delay in being admitted to the FB group. Check your “other” mailbox for a message from one of the group’s administrators, as they will be asking you to confirm your association with the school.

 

6) Email!

Families receive important school news and events information via emails from the school. If you have not been receiving these emails, make sure to click the “Request an Account” button on the UMCS website, and if that doesn’t work, check with Angie in the school office to make sure all of your account information is up to date.

The Family Advisory Council sends out emails to all families, and printed copies can be requested from the office.  Archives are at the FAC area of the UMCS Website.
