Parent Square Tips

Video Tutorial!

Language settings

  • You can set your preferred Parent Square communications language. “SoothingSpeak” is not an option. I checked.
  • Find your name on the top of the home page. Click on it and select “My account.” Select “language settings” and set the language of your choice.

Notification settings

  • Find your name on the top of the home page. Click on it and select “my account.” Select “notification settings” and choose if you’d like to receive new post notifications by email, text, the app, or any combination of the three.

Calendar

  • On the left hand side of the home page under “Explore” you will find “Calendar” with all events posted in Parent Square. Click “subscribe” to add the calendar events to your google calendar, or  “download” or “print.”

Search Posts – aka “I SWEAR I read something about that… I may be losing my mind.”

  • If you are looking for a post on a particular subject, go to the top of the screen and find the “search” box. Type in a keyword of your choice (“yearbook” for example), and all posts containing that word will appear.

Keep the Summer Reading going with BOOK BINGO!

Do you know about the summer READING slide? Typically over the summer, students who don’t read, lose their reading skills.

Students will be given a Book Bingo sheet this week, tailored for their grade level.

Prizes will be awarded in August for students who complete 2 or more bingos on the board. Students who complete a black out will be entered in a drawing for an awesome book basket!

To learn more about the summer reading slide and how you can access FREE books on OverDrive, go to this link:
