One of the best ways that I have found to communicate with our students is by sending out text messages. The hassle has become sending all these text messages from my phone. So, when I found out that there were services that could help me send out text messages I was very interested. There are many different text services that are out there that you can choose from such as: SimplyTxt, and TxtSignal.com, textmarks.com and a few others. These are all great services, but my problem is that we’re on a tight budget right now and even the small account is too much for us right now. Last month I ran across a blog that showed how we could send out free text messages to our students.
So, today I started sending text messages to our students through my google mail account. It is working great for our budget, our group, our parents, and leaders (right now a group of around 40 people). If you are like me and on a tight budget check out this blog post, and give it a try.
