Need a great home-school communication connection that is easy to use and doesn’t require you to be at a computer to update it? Check out the Remind 101 App! This is a great app that you can use on your iPhone or iPad, and guess what? Yep, it’s FREE!
The nice thing about this App is once you get families to register (by simply sending a text), you can send your class text messages to remind them of homework, an upcoming field trip or event, send reminders for popcorn Friday $, etc. The message will pop up on their phone as if someone is texting them; however, they CAN’T text back (phew!).
It is FAST, SAFE and EASY:
A teacher communication tool that allows you to message your entire class of students and improve parent involvement.
* Teachers never see students’ phone numbers. Students never see theirs.
* Students and parents join by sending a text message. No computer needed.
* As a safety precaution, only one-way messaging is permitted, allowing teachers to send updates and reminders without having to worry about managing another inbox.
* Great for parent teacher communication: improve parental engagement at the primary school, elementary school, high school.
