I have discovered yet another tool to communicate with you. It is called Remind. You need to sign up using the information that was sent home in your child's Zippy. I hope all this isn't getting too overwhelming Blog, Twitter and now Remind. Let me explain the purpose of each.
The Blog will be used to communicate longer more detailed information such as the most recent post about the Door of Mercy. It is also valuable because you can see our Learning Goals which are listed under the Curriculum Goals tab. There is also access to Dreambox and Razkids through the Blog as well an overview of planned activities for the month in the calendar.
Twitter is used to share more day to day information like pictures of a popular activity, a special event, learning centers used that day or interesting links to articles I think will be of interest to you. It gives you a good starting point for conversations at the dinner table.
This most latest tool will allow me to get a quick short message to you. Not everyone remembers to check their Twitter account so if I send you a text reminder, you are sure to get the information. This will be used to remind you of things like "Remember to wear red, pink, and white for Valentine's Day tomorrow".
Please let me know what you think of all this, is it all too much? We appreciate your feedback.
