While parent involvement is often crucial to the success of a school, communication is crucial to successful parent involvement. A new all-in-one communication platform aims to bring PTAs into the 21st century. Monday Envelope organizes fundraising efforts and volunteers so Parent Teacher Organizations can live up to their potential.

Founded by Bryn Boughton, Monday Envelope sends out a weekly email containing all the PTA planning details that are still outstanding. This way people can quickly see things like how many volunteers are still needed, what still needs to be paid for or activities requiring sign off. Users can also see upcoming events and sign up for daily updates if they want to be even more informed. The goal is for all involved parties to be directed to a singular platform so parent involvement doesn't become fragmented or disorganized.
