Zilker Elementary uses LivingTree, a virtual communication and collaboration tool that connects all the people who work together to raise and teach our kids. It’s our very own social network!

Whether you prefer receiving information via the website, emails or on a mobile app (Android or iOS), you’ll see school and class information and have the capability to engage in two way sharing within your class communities. LivingTree allows us to notify one another, privately message, share photos and media, manage volunteering and more – all in a single, private place for our school.

If you are a new family to Zilker, please register at:  At the beginning of each school year, we add all families to their new classroom groups so that we can begin communicating back and forth right away. If you have questions, please ask a staff member in the front office or your classroom’s assigned parent representative. Here is a Quick Guide to help get you started on using this new technology. 


We’re very excited to offer a virtual window to your child’s classroom and more ways to engage with Zilker’s parent community. Happy posting to us all!
