This year the classroom will be using an app called Remind Me to send emails and/or texts to parents about classroom/school announcements. Classroom announcements include, but are not limited to: test dates, upcoming school events, field trip reminders, etc. If you are interested in signing up for this app, please send me an email so I can send you the classroom code you need to join Ms. Bonow's fifth-grade class session.
Things to Know About the App:
1) It is a safe way for teachers to communicate with parents through text or email.
2) After the teacher adds a class, the app generates a unique code that the teacher can then share with parents. When the teacher sends a message from Remind Me, all parents that have subscribed to the app will receive it.
3) The teacher and other parents do not see each other's phone numbers.
4) Any phone can receive text messages or emails from Remind Me.
I will still be available by email and phone, and before or after school by appointment to communicate. This is just an extra resource being used to stay "in the loop" with classroom/school events. If you have any questions regarding the app, I am more than happy to answer them and can be reached at: email@example.com
