There were many challenges to building this site. This was the first effort to get the school’s newsletter online. Because the school administrators wanted the site to be updated regularly with pictures of school activities involving children, it was a requirement to have it open to only stakeholders of the school. Additionally, in order to streamline the communication, the site was required to have mass emailing capabilities built within. The last requirement was that the site be able to neatly support three languages. All of these features are built in.
