Amanda Griffin at Newton-Conover Middle School uses Remind 101.  She shared how she uses Remind 101.  “I have set up my four classes up in Remind 101 and had the information ready for parents at open house and sent the information home again in my syllabus.  I use it to send reminders of due dates for assignments or field trip money.  I sent a text Friday evening to remind students/parent that their “book talks” were due September 27th and they had two weeks left to finish their book and prepare their presentation.”
