REMIND 101 – Connecting Teachers, Parents and Students
Welcome back everyone to the 2012-2013 school year! We are very excited to have all the kids back, and I am especially excited for this years group of grade eights 🙂
In an effort to keep communication constant in this busy and every changing world, I would like to try a new service for parents, students and myself for communication. Its called Remind 101 and its all done through text message (email is optional). I know that my first question about this was privacy – what if i don’t want to share my cell phone number?? That’s the beauty of Remind 101 – no ones cell phone number is viewable to anyone else, and its all free!
To see a quick video of how it works, click here.
Parents and students can sign up the same way. For each class, I have set up a text message “name”. All you have to do on your end is text that class name that I created to a specific number (standard text messaging rates apply) and then you’re done! When I send a class text, you will receive that text instantly. The only draw back is that you cannot reply, but we can certainly clear up any confusion through phone, email or face-to-face.
To sign up now for your son or daughters class, simply click on the class below that they are in and follow the instructions provided. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
