  Easily share updates, photos and newsletters with parents

As a teacher, PTA leader or school principal, you can share announcements with the entire parent community, enable volunteer signups, publicize events, and send out pictures and documents.

You decide whether your updates get delivered as individual emails, or if you prefer to consolidate them into a single Daily Digest. Either way, your group members will get automatic reminders about your events. That means more parent engagement and participation.


  Communicate one-on-one with your group members

You can easily communicate with a parent one-on-one. Don’t worry about taking out the school directory – just click on the person’s name in the circle roster, and start a conversation.


  Make volunteer signups a breeze

If you’re looking for parents to volunteer for a classroom party, chaperone a field trip, staff a walkathon, or coordinate a charity auction, it’s easy on SimplyCircle. Just create an event or task and ask for volunteers in one easy step. Parents who volunteer will automatically be reminded before the event, which takes one more thing to do off your plate.


  Invite members easily, even if you don't know their emails

SimplyCircle gives you many options for inviting your members. You can copy and paste their email addresses, upload a CSV file, or import contacts from your Yahoo or Gmail account.

Best of all, you don’t even need everyone’s email address! Every circle comes with its own private circle invitation code. Let your group members know the code, and they can join your circle on their own.

Even if members join by invite code, you still have complete control over who is in your circle. This preserves the privacy and security of your group and all the information you share with them.
