Remind (formerly Remind101) offers teachers a free, safe and simple way to instantly text students and parents. Teachers, coaches, or administrators can send reminders, assignments, homework, assessments, or motivational messages directly to students' and parents' phones. Interactions are safe because phone numbers are kept private, and teachers save time because the messages are one-way. For students and parents, Remind provides an easier way to stay informed outside of the classroom.

Use Remind to send free text messages to save time, engage students and involve parents with your class. Download the app to send and receive messages faster with push notifications, and see messages from your classes all in one place! If you love Remind, share it with your colleagues or write a review!

BLOOMBERG BUSINESSWEEK: “Jessica D, a teacher in Louisiana, uses Remind daily to brief parents on whether their children did well in class and what their homework is for the night. She says the app has led more students to complete their homework and even credits it with improving scores on standardized tests. “The word I use is ‘transform,’ ” she says. “It transformed my classroom. And I think it made me a better teacher.”

PARENTING: According to a study conducted by Harvard University, on average, teacher-family communication increased the odds a student completed their homework by 42% and decreased instances in which teachers had to redirect students' attention to the task at hand by 25%. Parent-teacher communication is clearly key to a student's success, and Remind can help.

BUZZFEED: “...SMS allows the app to be used by parents without smartphones. Brett Kopf said that Remind’s features have proved especially popular in low-income districts, where parent engagement is a key issue for teachers, and parents’ sometimes erratic work schedules can make it difficult to get in touch by phone.”
