Why is it not too late to do the school directory app in Winter?

Every PTA/PTO/HSA loves to compile a school directory at the beginning of the school year in August/September.

It’s essential to keep the conversation flowing between parents, teachers, PTA and school administration, solving problems or avoiding them altogether.
