Membership Toolkit our new Online Directory

We need ALL parents to verify/confirm their personal data in Membership Toolkit (using the app on your phone or your computer) ASAP this week. Membership Toolkit is a our new online directory provider.  It also has features that allow the PTO to send emails and push notifications. We will no longer be using Remind for text messages.  You will need to download the Membership Toolkit app (unless you already have it).

This year we will send out PTO announcements/reminders via push notifications and email using the Membership Toolkit system and you must allow the system to send you notifications. To do this, go to Settings in your profile and slide the toggle to green at Allow Notifications.

TIP #1: 

If you already use the Membership Toolkit with either the Monroe PTO or Walker PTO, you can easily access both school directories in the following manner:
To switch between schools on the website, open a new browser tab and enter the URL for the other school.

TIP #2: 
To switch between schools on the App, click the ‘stacked hamburger’ menu and then click the switch organization icon on the App menu page as shown in the screenshots below. The user will then be presented with a list of all the organizations that they are associated with and from which they can select the organization to switch to.

Thank you for your assistance with the smooth transition to Membership Toolkit , our new online directory provider and communication system.  If you have any other questions, please email:


LIKE Movie Viewing at CHMS

Thank you to the D181 Foundation for sponsoring the LIKE Movie viewing for all of our students this past week, as well as the family viewing at CHMS on the evening of Thursday, October 3.  The movie is a documentary that explores the impact of social media on our lives. It explores the understandings of the effects and impacts of technology and social media on the brains and lives. The movie also touches upon how we can learn how to navigate these safely and make better decisions. Following the movie, our students had conversations with their Advisories to help discuss the important aspect surrounding these topics. Click HERE to view the program book.   Click HERE to discuss some of these questions with your student(s).

Thank you!

Dr. Levi Brown, Principal
