Mass text your students and parents? Easy!

Remind 101 is a great tool for classroom teachers and other educators looking for a free and safe way to send text messages to students and parents.

And, it's super easy!

Simply go to Remind 101's Website and sign-up.

Then, you are ready to add your classes. Your classes will be your sender name. For instance, if you create a class called Fenne's Fifth, your text you send to the group will come from Fenne's Fifth. When you create your class, you will be given a code for anyone who wants to be part of the text group. Members will be required to submit a text to the given address with the assigned code. Once they have sent the text, they are part of the group.

And, all you have to do, is type a message in the "send message" box. You can also select your recipient groups.

Standard text messaging rates apply. However, the actual service is free and great for educators wanting to send out notices and reminders to parents and students.

Check it out!
