Remind 101

Remind 101 

Teachers sharing their phone numbers with parents is always a hot topic at the beginning of the school year and a worry for many teachers.  Not to mention, those middle school and high school students that are attached to their phone but would never want their teacher to have their phone number. Remind101 is a free app that allows teachers to text their students or parents in a one way message for reminders on homework or events.  Phone numbers are not seen by anybody using it. If a parent cannot or does not want to receive text message notifications, they can receive them through e-mail.  It is a great way to stay connected and get messages straight to parents.
