Have you heard of Class Messenger? I just started using it this year and I love it!! I just used it right before this blog post to remind all of my parents that tomorrow's picture day!! How often do you find reminders and notes still in the backpacks the next day; never even seen by the parents? Me.....quite often! But how many parents do you know that don't have a cell phone in their hand everytime you see them?? Not very many. Backpacks may not be checked as often as they should, but text messages seldom go neglected!
Class Messenger is a private two-way message service and it's free! With Class Messenger you can send parents, families, and even students- reminders, messages, homework, surveys......and even pre-filled forms like volunteer requests, material requests, or conference requests in less than a minute right from your phone or computer. Class Messenger does not use your cell phone number; therefore it remains undisclosed and your parents receive your messages right from their phone in a text message. How awesome is that??
Below is a short video about Class Messenger.
You can choose two ways to use class messenger. You can download their free app and send your message right from your phone.....or you can sign up online and send text messages right from your computer!
Another thing I love about CM is there is no sign up required from the parents. I tried the "Remind" teacher app last year and because it required parents to sign up, I had a disappointing response. With CM they will immediately begin receiving your messages!
With Class Messenger your parents will never miss another notice or reminder from you again!! Or realize after you send them home for the day that you forgot to put that reminder in their backpacks.....and the event is tomorrow....yikes!!! No longer a problem with class messenger!
Give it a try! I know you'll love it!
