Anyway, I want to share this amazing resource with all of you.
I know that some teachers give our their cell numbers to parents, but I am not one of those teachers. I just don't feel comfortable. The downside of that is I can't text parents. So many people respond to texting quicker and more often than phone calls. I'm not talking about sending tons on random texts to parents, either.
I wanted a way to send out reminders in a way that I know parents will receive them. I get the feeling that many of my notes home do not make it into their hands. :) You know how it is. So here is the solution!
I really like using this, but there are a few downsides:
- You have to keep it short.
- You don't have the ability to send individual texts, what you send goes to everyone.
- parent conferences
- field trips
- testing days
- early release
- homework reminders
- STAAR camp reminders
