Remind 101

Uh oh...
It's Thursday night and you forgot to remind parents about the field trip permission slip that is due tomorrow. What do you do? Before amazing technology, nothing.
Remind 101 is one phenomenal solution!!

At my faculty meeting, I was introduced to a fun new app called Remind 101. I have heard of this in the past, but never thought to use it. Now, I can't wait to get it set up and ready to use in my classroom! 

Best thing: You can do it from your phone app (FREE!!) or your desktop!

Here is a little tutorial on getting it set-up.
It's actually quite simple, but just in case you wanted a walk-through... here you go!

  1. This is my 2nd year using Remind101- I adore it! I often schedule reminders to go out during the week (library books need returning tomorrow, homework is due tomorrow, etc.). This is a wonderful app! Last year I only had 2 parents who weren't signed up. Yesterday I checked my class list & there are 5 parents not yet signed up- I typed up a new letter & a new print out on how to subscribe and am sending them home. I'm going for 100% this year!!!

  2. I started using Remind 101 this year, too. I love it! I just wish I could get ALL parents to sign up. I keep mentioning it in my newsletter, but I have about 6 hold outs!

  3. This is such a great idea! Thanks for sharing it. I am going to have to set one up!

  4. I love Remind101. I just started using it this year. I have 11 parents. It is wonderful. My goal this year is to do better about parent communication and Remind101 does just that!
