Earlier this summer I wrote about SimplyCircle, a free, safe and simple way to communicate with parents. Now they have apps for iOS and Android that are perfect for quick, on-the-go communication. It’s a great tool to get parents involved this school year.
Get Parents Involved
Sending photos. Families love seeing their kids’ photos and artwork. With SimplyCircle’s app, teachers can share photos from field trips or classroom activities easily and securely – right from the photo gallery on their phone.
Getting volunteers. Teachers can use the app to ask parents to volunteer or to bring supplies or food. When signing up to help is as easy as a click of a button, parents can quickly respond to your request to participate and contribute.
Sending group updates or private messages. With SimplyCircle’s app, teachers can send an update or reminder to the entire class or message an individual parent.
