Remind 101 App- Teacher/Parent Connection Through Text Messaging

Today a friend of mine share the app Remind 101 with me. It is an app that allows you to text message all of the parents in your class with class and school reminders, classroom events, and notes about items your child needs to bring to school. Teachers never see the parent's phone numbers and parents never see the teacher's  phone numbers. Parents can also opt to receive messages through email rather than text if they prefer. The app is free and easy to use. I have already created an account and written a note telling my parents how to join our class group. You can learn more about the app here.

I am so excited about this app because it is perfect for reminding parents when students need to bring special items such as an apple or wear something special for a school event. I also think it will be great for informing parents about special activities and lessons that go on during the day so they will know to ask their child about them.

I know several teachers that use Remind101, and they rave about it! It's not for personal messages, but it is great for general ones!

What did you send out to your parents on how you will be using this in the classroom? Would love to see the parent letter that is sent home.
