Hmm... interesting... Free web-based program to send updates to parents and students via text message. They subscribe online and you don't ever have to know their phone numbers and they never have to know yours. Great way to keep kids updated.
This school year, be sure to sign up and use remind101 - a free way to easily, safely connect with your students and families. In my second grade class, we send reminders from everything like weekly spelling words to early dismissals. I even send them links to iTunes for fun apps we use in class! Parents LOVE being able to connect in a way that is easy and functional. It's really been the BEST thing I've added to my learning environment in the past 2 years!
Reminder sticker labels! Stick them on students' t-shirts or in student planners! Easy way to remind parents of important school events! :)
