Konstella is the best way to receive school information. It is used by the PTA, school administration, parent coordinator, YMCA, class parents and many classroom teachers. Through Konstella you can: receive up-to-date school and PTA announcements, register for enrichment, volunteer for committees and events, manage calendars, and communicate with other parents, among other features. You may also download the app for iOs and Android phones for info on the go.

Please pay special attention to the privacy features; it’s up to you to choose the level of personal information other parents can see in the Konstella directory.


A message to incoming PS 38 families:

Welcome to the PS 38 Community! Please join Konstella once you have registered your child for the 2021-2022 school year. You can join the classroom labeled ‘Incoming Students (2021-22)’. Once you receive a classroom assignment in late August, you may move to your child’s classroom.

We know transitioning to a new school under these circumstances is not easy, but we are here to welcome and assist you. Be on the lookout for some virtual welcome events in September and in the meantime, please feel free to reach out to the PTA Executive Board with any questions, concerns or ideas!


All parents are automatically members of the PS 38 PTA.
