This is a place to document the online efforts of Sagamore Hills Elementary School and its PTA.


To Do[edit]


  • Make the authoritative calendar pdf linked from the PTA calendar page an unchanging address hosted by us, like hosted (and updated) on the Sagamore Google Drive --Dave (talk) 14:22, 12 September 2014 (EDT)
    • ✓ The "print" option on the calendar page now provides an (ugly) always-up-to-date PDF created directly from the electronic calendar. The "regular" print calendar that's printed and handed out occasionally is still a Word document on the Google Drive, maintained and synced by others. --Dave (talk) 15:51, 12 December 2015 (EST)
  • Email addresses at, to forward to appropriate people over time? Like board@, online@, advertise@, etc.?
  • Consider using MailChimp instead of Constant Contact -Dave (talk) 12:31, 20 August 2013 (EDT)
    • ✓ Move made Fall 2015 when Dave Barker became PTA Communications. Constant Contact makes a complete export impossible. The contact were exported and saved to the Drive (and imported into MailChimp). The account is no longer paid for (it was on Nancy Shober's card), but it still possible to log in (just not send). --Dave (talk) 16:10, 12 December 2015 (EST)
  • BringIt Signup Sheets (
    • Should we move over to their "new" signup sheets at
      • Newness at , credentials in the Password file. It wants a credit card to maintain being able to copy sheets (free version looses that and adds ads) --Dave (talk) 12:00, 26 October 2014 (EDT)
    • Should we just use Google Forms instead (possible, advantages?)?
    • ✓ Old signup sheets were copied over to the new (by Nancy Shober) and the account closed. The new one is being billed monthly to Kristie McMahan. Nobody else has mentioned interest in Google Forms or other replacements. --Dave (talk) 15:37, 12 December 2015 (EST)
  • Create a Google account --Dave (talk) 12:00, 01 February 2015 (EST)
  • Older done to dos
