Parents just like you love ClassTag because it enables them to become partners in their child's education, catch magical day-to-day moments they would otherwise miss, and easily stay in the loop with all announcements, activities, and events for their child's school in one place.
This is the best place to start your session on ClassTag. Here you will find announcements, pictures, and the week ahead with a summary of all upcoming activities.
The activities tab is where you can see all of the upcoming and past activities for your child's class. You'll see detailed information of events including the start and end date, times, and locations. We have included the ability for parents to see teacher requests for volunteers and items for these activities. There is even a place to for parents to sign up for Parent-Teacher Conferences. Simply click on the '+' circle to sign up and come back to change it at any time as you need. You can also add to your personal calendar right from there.
For further information on how you can sign up for Activities, please refer to this article.
The Class Directory is where you’ll find a list of all the students in your child's class and the names of their parents. If the parent has chosen to share their contact information with other parents, you will see their email or mobile number. Please note that the teacher can enable and disable the ability for the parents to see the class directory.
As you are getting set up on ClassTag, it is great to upload the photo of yourself and your child so everyone gets to know you and invite any co-parents or guardians to your family to help them stay in the loop as well.
The library is where you can find class and event photos & videos, class files, and even upload your own files, photos, and videos to share with other members of the class. This is a great place to connect, share, and stay informed about the events and activities going on in the classroom.
