World23mn - Awesome for texting but lacks features for educators
Being able to text people in a class or small groups is amazing and very helpful. However finding individual texts is very difficult to do...there’s no way to sort or organize msgs and if you receive images or attachments from members (students) they are also extremely difficult to find after several threads. You’d have to download or copy the attached picture right away because if you miss it or if you don’t do it immediately then you might as well forget it. The new features to attach files from different platforms is amazing but if you can’t receive msgs in a way that’s easy to organize, you might as well stick to email for more classroom related tasks like assignments and schoolwork communication. If it’s being presented as a tool for constant communication in an educational context it would be most helpful to sort msgs or find attachments somehow in a way that’s efficient and organized. It’s also difficult to find contacts when parents and students are not separated or filed easily, especially using it in the primary grades where the main contact or only contact is with a parent (you still need to know who’s parent they are) and adding that to the “notes” is not the best option.
Amy E from AZ - First ever app review.... this should be used at every school!
This is the first app I’ve ever reviewed! But I have to say how this app has been so amazing for our family! My 5 year old son has autism and receives a lot of special services including seeing numerous teachers and therapists at school. Before this app I was never able to keep up with all the emails, found it impossible to go through everything and respond to everyone in a timely manner. Once his school started using Remind, all the important communications, the stuff directly from his teachers regarding things in his specific care, now had their very own home on my phone, and the unique style alerts easily combined to separate these important messages from the noise of my constantly roaring email inbox! With this app I have been able to GREATLY improve my communications with my son’s teachers and therapists at school and it allows so much better cross communication between the entire group on his team as well! I think every school should be using this app. Teachers, get your classroom on here! Parents, send Remind invites to your children’s teachers! I love this app so much and hope to see it used everywhere soon!
Kylee Boshers - This is an awesome app
This is an amazing app to use. You can use it for many different things, you can use it for school or just for groups for school. You can use it for work. You can pretty much use it for anything related to learning or working. It’s an awesome app to have because it has helped me to remember things for school I mainly use it for my beta club stuff. You can add friends and different things in it, and you can also, you can make your own profile. You can add friends on it and it’s just a really good app to use if you forget things like I do and I just love to see what things and opportunities for school and mainly my group for school, beta. Whoever made this app is amazing I could give them a huge thumbs up, and also I want to give he/she a hug because of this app I am able to remember things for beta club. THANKS FOR GIVING ME TJIS OPPORTUNITY to make a review.
P.S. I want to say thank you again and I want to meet the person who made this app because they are a genius or they all or all geniuses
shouldntbehard - Terrible Sign up experience
First, I signed up using the text option provided by my daughter’s school. Second, I downloaded the app and chose to sign in using my google account, rather than creating “another” user account on someone else’s servers. I finished the verification process and and found the account I had just created via text message. I was prompted to merge and I accepted. I received an email saying my accounts were merged so I assumed the app was just a stuck. Third, merging was stuck for over 10 minutes so I removed and downloaded the app again. When I got to the main page it had already pre-populated my email address in the email field. Assuming the app was smart enough to use Google SSO, as I had previously indicated, I clicked the next button. Now it’s trying to create me another account on remind servers. So basically no SSO. And, I’m stuck on the page that wants me to choose a password! I don’t want to choose a password! I want to go back and sign in with the Google account like I indicated in the first place. But now the app won’t let me go anywhere until I enter a password. I’ve deleted the app. I’ve deleted the app and app data, but it appears to be keeping track of where I was in the app. Clearly it’s storing something where I cannot delete it. Now I have no idea how to use this app. It’s stuck and I have no recourse.
Dosangel - Horrible app!!!!
This app is apparently too hard for some teachers to set up. I sent a message to my child’s teacher at about 9:45 pm one evening and the message wasn’t received by the teacher until around 3 am when it woke her up because she had her am/pm switched around in her available hours and had it programmed mistakenly to go to her personal cell phone. When I arrived at the school the next morning to drop off my children I was met at the car/curb by two administrators who demanded that I meet them across campus at an admin office where I was accused of hacking into a teachers personal life and obtaining her cell phone number!! Luckily I was able to prove that I sent the message at around 9:45 pm vs the reported 3 am by showing them the app and the message to clear myself. However, this resulted in the teacher getting embarrassed &/or still not trusting me and she didn't think she could continue being my child’s teacher. So, my son was transferred to a different teacher where he went through an entire school year being constantly abused verbally and physically. Now 2 years later, the teacher who was too stupid to understand how to properly set up her app is now my child’s teacher again and even though I refuse to use the remind app to communicate with her she has created a new nightmare for my child this year!!!
mickeymahjong - Great for teachers
I love this app. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because I think you should be able to send longer messages. I often have to send 3 messages to relay the week’s reminders, which is annoying to me and the parents. Also, I have to keep a parent contact log and I wish there was a way to sort the dates of messages sent directly to the parents that aren’t whole class messages. I have to go into each parent and do them one by one and it takes forever- so a sort drop down menu filter would be nice.
What’s great? The fact you can go back and look at old messages. I actually had a parent try to sue our school because she said her child slipped on the bathroom floor and lost a permanent tooth. On the day her daughter was playing with the sink water, she did slip and lose a tooth, but her mom texted me through remind and said, “ thank goodness the doctors said it was a baby tooth, her permanent one is getting close to coming in.” Lawsuit saved! I also like that it lets you attach pics. I often take pics of school flyers or homework sheets and send.
I reviewed it! - Jumbled
This app is...kind of......ok-ish. This app used to be great! I will be honest and say that the app WAS awesome in the past. However, now it’s just a necessary annoyance. I use it now only because I need it to keep in touch with the schools that my children attend. The stream of messages with no division of which school or class is annoying. The inability to leave a school is annoying. Yes. I get that there is a way to delete a school, but it doesn’t work every time. Try it. It won’t always work. I have a teacher who has two different groups. They both go to the same stream because they were both sent out by the same person. That gets confusing because I have to check the header of each and every message to see which group is being referred to instead of them being able to be separate even with them having different codes!!! It’s a different group!! It shouldn’t come in on the same screen as the other group!!! It’s just annoying!!! This is the situation for the most active groups on my app. Good luck trying to keep track of everything with this crazy app!!!! I’m so sad to leave a two star review for what used to be one of my favorite apps. :-( :-( :-(
Bre :~) - Good so far, but could use improvement
I really enjoy using remind because it’s user friendly and extremely compatible with all of my apple products. Even my students without smart phones are able to use remind through SMS. I also love the feature of allowing parents to join a class. However, there are a few features that are lacking. I don’t like that my characters are limited when I send an announcement. I tend to send a lot of attachments and that seems to lower the character count additionally. Also, I like to create videos of my solutions to problems and send them to students. Remind doesn’t allow for videos to be sent. It does allow pictures to be sent, but if I have a multitude of pictures (for example a packet where each page is its own separate picture), I have to send the pictures one at a time in their own separate messages. I’m looking forward to updates that will make Remind even more useful for my students and myself.
I made this for you! - Student/Procter
Remind is a one of a kind tool to use in classrooms, clubs, and really any organization that needs mass communication. It is really simple and easy to use. It can take less than a minute to send a message to the group, and even allows private chats between students and teachers. I think one of the best things about Remind is that it allows teachers to communicate with students without the awkwardness of private phone numbers. It is all done through the app so the numbers are confidential.
However, the only down side is that it is very difficult to send large messages to the group because there is a character max of about 130. If Remind were the change it to about 200, I think it would make communication even easier. Sometimes there just isn’t enough space to say all that needs to be said, so the new max character count would aid in that aspect.
Other than that, Remind is a high quality and effortless way to communicate within organizations!
MamaBearKK - Love Love Love this app!!!
The Remind app is simply awesome! I struggle with anxiety when it comes to my kids, one high schooler and one kindergartner. I find myself wondering how they are, if they are ok, what’s going on with them while at school etc. My youngest started kindergarten this year and as most of you know that can be a struggle in itself. The first few weeks there were tears, asking teachers to call “mama”, etc. The Remind app has helped not only myself but my little one adjust to going to school and being away from me. Knowing I can check in on them or the teachers can check in with me with updates, emergency’s, class assignments, school functions etc.. its a total game changer! My high schooler can stay in contact with teachers even after school hours for homework questions, help with assignments, etc. Thats a plus itself!
I can breathe easy knowing I can be & stay in contact with my kids teachers at anytime!
I’m so grateful for the Remind app. We Love it!
cynnatang - Stopped before it started
I’ve heard and read so many great reviews for this app, including from my colleagues so I after two terms of hearing about it, I finally decided to try it. Lucky me! 😒 I’m not sure what I did wrong but within seconds, it has already been a fail. I’ve tried uninstalling and installing and was still a total fail.
After setting up my classroom, I went to enter some contacts and it got stuck at asking me what I wanted people to call me, which I had already done in the initial setup. Already strange that it was asking me this again. I typed my name again, and chose “Ms” for the title; then hit next. First it changed what I entered and added an “M.” in front of my name and no title. It then would not advance to the next screen. I repeatedly hit next and it just kept repeating the same screen name question. I even uninstalled and when I installed again; it eerily would reload and show the last screen from before I uninstalled it - still asking me what name. A major glitch to be sure. It just kept blipping “What do you want students to call you?” Call me baffled and disappointed.
GoddessValynn - So happy with this App but..
This App is great! I am glad I can finally keep in contact with my teachers over the weekend or even when school is out and there is no after school tutoring. There are so many great things about this app to talk about but I do have one complaint. See I move a lot being a military family and also moving schools. So when I try to switch my schools to my current one it kept saying that it wasn’t advised to do it and wouldn’t let me it took me 46 minutes until I was able to get my school switched with the help of a teacher. I thought it would automatically switch when I became registered in a different school because I am in high school and it said I was in middle school. And because it said I was in middle school I couldn’t join any of my high school classes on remind. I would just like it to be less complicated in the future. But otherwise this App is 5 Star!! I recommend it to all of my friends all the time!
mama sargent - Appreciation!!
Was so pleased that thru the first few months of this school year that having this way to communicate with their teachers helped a lot. Miss Keddie and Miss Churruca were really supported and helpful to our Kadence when she needed it. Wish I can turn back the time to the beginning of 6th grade to really appreciate the days Kadence was attending at Ocotillo. Days went by so fast blink of an eye!!! Children grow up so fast!!! Really saw Kadence’s face light up every morning when she approached the school and when picking her up at the end of the day I looked with so much happiness and loving feelings to see my granddaughter happy with her friends and her family. Her parents were not around so her grandparents, which was myself and my husband, took charge to take care of our beautiful grandkids. They are now reunited with their mom and day and doing well still at our home. They feel safe and have support and so much love from their family. Thank you again!!!!
Moonlight Zen - Nice app but few concerns
Hello, my name is Shelly.
I congratulate you developers for making such a simple and nice app for commucation. Teachers use this and so do students. Thank you for creating this app.
Alrighty, every time there is an update, I’m sorry, but this makes me giggle because all it says in the description is “improvements” and that’s all. 😁
That’s not my concern—my concern is the fact that it kind of glitches with no wifi. Sometimes the messages don’t show up, and I’m confused. I see it on my notifications, but I don’t see it on the Remind app itself until it refreshes, but I constantly try to refresh it and have it take longer than usual.
You all don’t need to fix that because it’s due to wifi problems that are easily solved.
That’s all. 🙂 Other than that, I believe this app is good and recommended to anyone.
❤️Again, thank you so much for your time & patience reading this.❤️
P.S., I’m sorry about the story someone reviwed here; their bad experience made me feel pity for her and her child. I hope he is doing better now & so is she. I personally wouldn’t know what to do, if I had that kind of teacher. So far, I only had one teacher that wasn’t the best. She didn’t like me one bit but kept a secret / hid that. Maybe it was her demeanor or I perceived it wrongly, but still, it was very awkward being in her classroom.
Anyway, I hope nobody goes through that. Tough world out there.
I am an echo - Very helpful, few minor flaws
“Outside of office hours” needs to have an option so the app will not notify you during that time. I have at times been unable to silence my phone for personal reasons and been awakened, disrupted or frustrated by students messaging at times I have asked them, numerous times, not to. It has only gotten worse with online learning. Students do not always have the maturity to realize that it is inappropriate to message a teacher at 10 pm to ask if an assignment was turned in or to correct a grade. That option would save me, and I’d imagine many teachers, so much frustration.
The good: I use this app daily. It has helped me support numerous students over the years, whether it was simple questions or reassuring them to focus on self-care and family during difficult times. I don’t know what I would do without it. It helps me connect with and help so many students. I very much appreciate what it does, but I need a break from the notifications/work sometimes.
R33S3Y - Love this app
The Remind App is great. I had never even heard of it until the beginning of the school year when my daughter’s teacher sent all of us parents a link to do it. It’s just fantastic. But if you don’t have a school, or teacher that’s on top of it and sends out the reminders then clearly it’s not going to work. It’s great though to get reminders the night before, or the morning of, ab any changes or special events at school. They even use it to tell us if school is cancelled or delayed due to snow, and send class pictures from special occasions. And you can comment or ask questions, privately, or publicly so other parents that might have the same questions can see it. It’s also secure, it’s individual to each class within each school, and the admin has to approve your request to join, or send an invite link. With life being so hectic this is truly something helpful 😉
Carisjojo - Mostly Great
I mostly like the premise of this app. It does exactly what it says it will do mostly perfectly. Students like it and it’s easy to use. However, a couple things drive me crazy:
1) it’s impossible to clear notifications. I HATE seeing the notification tag on my devices and it’s impossible to get rid of them. I have spent an eternity combing through the thousands of messages I’ve received over the past three years, none of them are unread, yet I still have four notifications that will NOT go away. Grrrr.
2) I know that app designers want us to constantly use their apps, but this one goes too far. It will send me 20 notifications a day, with no options on which to receive and how. They’re either off or on which makes the app either useless or completely obnoxious. There’s no in between and that is annoying.
I’ve now uninstalled this app for the second time. That means I only use the web browser version, which is not as convenient, but at least it can’t bombard me with notifications that are impossible to remove. Please fix and I will reinstall!
Teacher3B - Remind is AWESOME!
I have been using this app to communicate with my students’ parents/guardians for several years! Starting last year, I started added grandparents (as long as parents approved) because they wanted to support their grandchild with anything they had going on at school. I teach 3rd grade & our administrators do not allow us to text with children, for obvious reasons. I can send group photos when I take special pictures like: First day if school, homecoming week dress up days, fire prevention week, and this week we are doing Red Ribbon week! Everyone enjoys knowing what’s happening at school! This is a format that allows me to share “great things” instead of just negative phone calls. Parents are much more helpful when they see the teacher as a positive and meaningful person in the life of their child! Remind gives them this new perspective! Thank you for this app! Teacher 3B! 🐝
InezIncendio - Remind is Awesome
We have used this app extensively for our Drama Club for the last three years and it’s absolutely invaluable. Parents and students can be so easily and quickly contacted about anything! Especially last minute rehearsal changes, and reminders for when things are due.
The app does have a couple of small bugs - it doesn’t refresh well without clicking out of the screen and back again; sometimes it’ll say I’ve got a message on my notifications, but it won’t show up on the app unless I close it and open it again. But these really minor bugs don’t make the use of the app even uncomfortable. It just costs an extra 10 seconds a day, but the app itself saves us hours! So I think it’s absolutely 100% worth putting up with the minor bugs.
I LOVE this app! Thank you for making it!
tabernacleofgrace - Easy easy easy
Easy to set up, easy to get subscribers, easy to use. Great app for keeping groups informed. I use it for my Sunday School class to keep them informed of events and needs of the class.
I have been using this app for almost 2 years now, and I'm still happy with the product. Recent update to the app however, have made it more difficult for me to see the messages. I am visually impaired and need more of a high contrast between text and background. Even when using the accessibility options in the Apple iOS, messages are still difficult to see because of the color schemes that were selected by the developer. Unfortunately, pastels seem to be the big thing now so this is not the only app I have difficulty with. Perhaps allowing users to pick a color scheme in settings would be appropriate
I am looking forward to the day when the app takes advantage of Dark mode to make viewing easier.
mucha_lucha - App has been acting up
Partially though the year my app notifications just stopped. I would suddenly realize I hadn’t heard anything in weeks so I’d check the app and see everything waiting for me. Then promptly forget to look into why. Repeat over and over until finally I turned on mobile notifications and turned push notifications from the app off. Went looking for info about school and realized I never figured out what was going on with the app. At this point I could just delete it. Now it says I have 29 notifications but nothing I do clears the number.
I would also love to clear messages sent to the jr high teachers and teachers from previous years. I remove the teacher but those old messages stay there under conversation. I feel like it would free up phone space if I could delete them.
The app is wonderful when it works especially when teachers use it but over the last year it’s been hit or miss... mostly miss.
Pixel Robot 9000 - Great app, just one small problem...
The remind app is great, it helps me know when assignment or tests are coming depending on what grade I’m in on my phone. However in this case I’ve been in a conversation ever since May, I haven’t been able to leave the conversation even when I looked it up on online and using the help center. It said there was a bar where It say X to leave conversation where the icon is. I tapped on the Icon and all I saw was my teacher, the info on the view profile, the options to block or report, and the conversation history email option . I have no idea how get out of this conversation. I’m a student first year into high school and I’m still in the conversation back from end of May that isn’t even necessary to me with no way to leave myself. If you could add in a way to leave a conversation for students it would help so much for anyone else having this problem.
NicoleRey - Great Ap for parents
My only child started kindergarten this year so Remind was brand new to our house & this level of communication between parent & teacher was a pleasant surprise. Remind does exactly what you’d want or need it to & is very simple to use. 💕👍🏼🏆
The only reason I left the 4-star rating rather than 5 is that a few times (usually last minute early mornings) the message or announcement will show a sent time stamp of a few hours earlier than it’s received.
If his teacher sends an all-parent notice out at 645am there have been a few times we don’t rcv until after 9/930am when kids are already off & gone for their day. The bummer is it’s likely too late to address. I’m not certain however if the problem is somehow the school / teacher piece or within the apps function... I just know other neighborhood parents, w/ different classes & teachers, have experienced the same issue.
Ems mom Lynn - Great concept
The concept is great. Being able to touch bases with your child’s school/teacher is an amazing feeling and builds trust between family/ school. Having said this, all this wonderful potential is cut short if the teacher turns off the ability for the parents to send messages to teachers. Also, teachers have the option to sign up and use the app or not at all. Again, no app automizes the human response, but this one would be better if more teachers embraced this technology and used it *for the entire school year* not just in the beginning when everything’s exciting. Too many parents have been left out of emailing their kids teachers because of some weird school site programmers restrictions that kick outside emails to the spam bin. I would like to see in a future update for this app that teachers are not able to turn off parents comments. Really sends the cold shoulder to a lot of families when it really is all about the kids.
HelpfulSeniorStudent - Perfect for the High school and above student
I had this app for around 4 years, (being during my high school years) after being forced by my classes thanks to the new technology curriculum in my school. Let me say this is a life saver. The teacher will ‘remind’ you when you have things due, an event the next day, or need to being an item to school. There is also a function to privately chat to your teacher, I used it to ask questions on weekends for projects due.
However this app is only as good as the teacher and student who use it if the teacher is willing to remind.
Although, I enjoyed the app, the notifications are not repeated, the ui and interface is simple, and it’s easy to add classes.
Definitely recommend for the forget me not students out there that is busy and stressed with multiple class work
*geeky~gamer~chic* - Error
Update: The developers reached out to me promptly and corrected the error! It is now working properly.
Even with this one issue, I highly recommend this app!
There has been the number 1 beside my app for over two months now! I have contacted Remind multiple times and asked for their help and nothing! I have done everything I know to figure out why it is there. I even archived the group that the red dot was beside and it still won’t go away. This is beyond annoying! I have two kids that are in multiple groups that I receive notifications. I don’t want to constantly have to worry that I’ve missed a notice because of this problem. Can someone please help me with this matter?!?!
This is a great communication tool when it’s working properly! I do wish you were able to write more words in the body of the message.
Reviews made by Wolf Girl - Remind Review
Hello! I think this app is great! It keeps students in touch with teachers. However, I do have a few things to announce; Some good, some bad. First off, this app is very useful for communicating (obviously), and you can plan out times. I even used my old email to create a teacher account and I used a made-up school. The purpose is to help kids in my class; but I don’t really have friends so this is sadly impossible. Second, I found a glitch. On my main account (Student account), I cannot change my picture. When I go to “edit” and select a photo for it to be, then I exit, it says, “Changes complete!”. When I refresh the app, however (Close app entirely then re-open it), my picture I chose isn’t there! If you could fix that, it would be REALLY helpful. Lastly, I think it’s cool that we can send pictures. That way, students can tell which paper you mean. For example, if you gave out a homework on day one, then another the next day, and one is due on day 3, you can take a picture to show which homework you mean, or which was assigned that day. That is all for my review. All in all, this app meets all the requirements of a good student-teacher communication app. I rate this “5 stars” because it is simply just USEFUL! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
rtkoch2829 - Great app that is easy to use
I like that the app provides a way to text students without using my personal information and cell phone number. And it provides a platform to send group messages. I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 because there needs to be a way for us administrators of the app to make changes to a student’s account— for example if a student’s name is misspelled (often due to autocorrect) and it’s submitted, I can’t change it, only the student can. Also, once I put the student’s cell phone and email, I can’t see this information. So if I need to update and make changes to this info, or if I need to call the student or email the student, I don’t have access to the information. Also, it is frustrating that there’s a limit to how many characters I can use when sending group texts.
JoesWifey256 - Great App!
Remind is a fantastic way to keep in touch with your children’s school(s) and teacher(s). It’s a great way for the school(s) to send announcements during inclement weather or if there are certain things coming up they can send reminders for the dates of those. As well as if you have any issues or questions you can always reach out to your child’s teacher to discuss those questions as well as their grades, extra credit work, etc. My husband & I both have this app and I recommend it to anyone who has children whose school uses it. If your phone can’t hold the app you can also set up where you can just get text reminders which I also think is great bc not everyone has enough memory on their phone to hold the app but they can still get in contact with the teacher(s).
Madmanea - Can use some work
I like the app! But… There are some things that could definitely be improved. The first and biggest issue is the maximum characters restriction. Remind allows you to write a message up to 140 characters. This forces me as a teacher to condense my messages so much that at times I am not able to get my whole message across. Granted, I can always send another message, but As most of you know, most students will not look farther back than the most recent message. That means that they are missing valuable information at times. The app lost 2 stars because of this one. Secondly, I’m not a fan of how a recipient is not able to click on a link directly from the message and be taken to the corresponding website. The user is forced to click on the Files tab to be able to open those links. This causes much consternation for me as my students didn’t bother to click on the file tab and just don’t bother looking into it further as they figured the link was just bad and now have an excuse to ignore the message altogether.
1234;678987554321 - Very, very helpful
I really appreciate the fact that I can text my students as a class and individually while all of us maintain the privacy of our phone numbers. This is much more effective than the email system our school provides. Teens hardly ever check emails, but they do check texts. I send reminders about homework, projects, and tests; I contact guys who have left their books or their coats in class; I give them a heads-up about inclement weather; and I send notes of praise and thanks as well as offers of extra help and do-overs. The only reason for the four instead of five stars is the limited number of characters in the text that I can send. I usually have to go back and abbreviate heavily or end up sending two messages. Evidently, my school has not bought into the upgrade that would give me the ability to send slightly longer messages.
userelevenfourteen - Lots of positives but one huge negative
I’ve been using the Remind app for the past few years and have found it to be very helpful and easy to use. However there is one big flaw that I wish could be fixed to make this a true 5 star app. The allow reply feature which enables parents and students to directly message teachers should have the option of being on an automatic timer of sorts. So instead of having to manually turn it off every day at 4, I wish I could schedule to have it on from 7-4 and then it goes off for the rest of the day. I know lots of teachers who have told me that they’ve taken Remind off of their phones because of the constant messages at all hours of the day. The away message that Remind has made available is not a deterrent at all. It’s just a sign that everyone ignores. So while the app does what it’s supposed to do, it has taken on a 24/7 life of its own.
Ellisshell - Great app...just one problem for me
This app is wonderful because it allows me to communicate with my college students. Nothing only that, it allows me to actually download and/or print all messages from students as well as all communications. My only problem or concern is that I have to limit my wording in each message I send (or simply type multiple messages) because Remind only allows so many characters in each message space. That makes it aggravating not only for me but my students, as they receive several back to back messages for just one announcement. On the flip side of that...it is helping me learn to eliminate excessive wordiness! Ha! Ha!
Overall this is still a great app...Just please fix my problem and allow at least a few more characters for each message!
S-A-M-C - Ok but... I Don't Want Notifications
I like the app, and it really helps me for my teachers to be able to notify me of upcoming assignments and due dates. Although I have a small issue, on the gear icon for the settings, there is always a orange dot when I am using the app, on my tablet. I use my phone for actually getting notifications from this app, but I use my tablet just to check back on past messages from my teachers, and this is why I have notifications completely turned off on my tablet. But, I feel it is a bit unnecessary that, every time I open the app on my tablet, it insists on "warning" me that I have notifications turned off. I know that this issue of mine is, most likely, not even a problem in your eyes, but it would be nice to not have this supposed warning, at the top left of my screen, while in the app. Thank you for making this app, and reading this long rant of mine.

Pautler01 - Functionality differs between app and desktop site
I’m a new user to the app, and I’m sure it’s generally great. However, somehow the app assigned me to a school that’s not even in my district! I see the Remind website provides guidance on how to remove a school, but it seems it only works when on a computer - not through the app on my iPhone and iPad. I realize overall it’s a minor issue, but it’s a major pet peeve for me when the functionality of a website and an app are not the same. I hope this isn’t user error on my end, but I tried everything I could think of to find a way to remove the school to no avail. *sigh*
Update - when trying to reset my password on the app it asks for a new password and to confirm the password. When I click save it says the old password is required to change it. Makes sense - except there is no field for the current password!
This app is driving me bonkers. I’m truly only using it because my daughters teacher requires it.
Cybot iPhone - Easy to set up and use. Very useful, just in case.
I found that the app was incredibly easy to set up and to use. I didn’t know much about the app, at first. I wanted to give 5 stars for a few reasons.
1 - This app has a very nice and slick user interface. It’s simple to navigated and find what you want in just a single tap or 2.
2 - The app has features that make it very easy to make and set a reminder. It’s very good to have when taking several classes and labs.
3 - This app does not require a lot of sensitive personal or financial data. Just enter some simple and basic contact information.
4 - The app looks very clean and that’s very good to have when you happen to check what reminder or alert you have set up.
5 - The app is free. And for a free app, it really was designed very well.
I think you’ll find this app very useful. It doesn’t require a lot of memory on your smart phone or tablet. Because the app uses so little space, it doesn’t require or use much power from your phone / table to use. I would recommend trying this app to find out if you like it or find it useful.
For something that would be very useful and free that can be of help to you, while in college, I would recommend giving it a try.
rphub - I LOVE Remind!
We have always used another major app for communicating with my stepsons teachers, and we’re definitely not very fond of it and have a lot of problems with it and always have the entire 3 years we’ve been using it. It wasn’t until this year when my daughter started kindergarten that I found out there was another app for communicating with teachers. I have been happy with Remind since first downloading it and now after using it for over a month of regularly talking to my daughters teacher- I absolutely LOVE IT. It’s much more reliable than other similar platforms. I also love that you can communicate with other parents if need be. It’s simple, easy to use, and reliable. I would recommend Remind over other similar platforms over and over again!
bethabe - Love this app!
I am mother to three school-aged children and this app is wonderful! All of their teachers and coaches (elementary and jr high, 21 “classes” in all) use Remind and it helps so much to have all their notes and reminders and updates show up in one place. Thank you so much for making my life more organized!
One suggestion for a feature I couldn’t find, but would make the app even easier to use. It would be so helpful if I could create folders or label or otherwise group classes so I could instantly tell which class goes with which of my children. It gets tricky to tell which class goes with which, especially when two of my children have the same teacher or class in different years. It would be a big bonus to an already great app.
Yelrihs86 - Avid User
I love remind. I use it on a weekly basis. I have been part of remind for 2 years now and I can say that my students really love it. However, I don't like the current version of the app. It is hard to find where I can write a message. I feel like I am navigating back and forth and never find what I am looking for. The layout as as is has been the most difficult for me to use and I consider myself technology buff. Hope there is an update with changes soon. Neverless, still use this program folks! Students love it. (I currently use the desktop version because it's easier for me)
Update: navigation has gotten a lot better. Easier to find where to send messages. Now my biggest complaint is that I get a notification for the same message sent to different classes. I don’t remember this happening until this fall of 2018.
trisman4902 - Great idea, challenging interface
The concept is great: a simple way to share reminders and urgent messages quickly via text with my class parents.
The challenges I run in to every year is 1. fixing errors in the spelling of parents names (which is a problem when autocorrect changes Oriana to “Organs” and you don’t notice until after the invitation has been sent and accepted), and 2. Correcting mismatches in a couple’s names/numbers. For instance I accidentally linked a wife’s name to her husband’s phone. He accepted her invite (and his own) so now all announcements go to him.
I’ve tried chatting and submitting help requests. I’ve been told the solution requires the parents to download the app, create an account, and fix the problem at their end. I appreciate the need to respect privacy, but that’s putting the onerous on the wrong party. Administrators have to be able to make simple corrections at our end.
LittleMissLys041 - Teacher Essential
Wow, where to start about Remind… I love this app so much. How is it not useful?! It helps me get out reminders that I forgot to tell my students in class, remind them about projects and long-term assignments, Develop relationships with students that may not typically speak up in class, and help answer questions or problems that students/parents have a quickly and efficiently. All of my students and their parents signed up for Remind at the beginning of the year. I hand out the instructions for how to sign up at back to school night and explain how I use it with the parents.
I think one of the most exciting things that Remind has done recently is allow teachers to link their Google classroom account to their Remind account to streamline and makes it simple to send out important announcements that require an attached document to students in one quick click of a button.
There are many more helpful qualities about this app, so I recommend downloading it and exploring. It is extremely user-friendly and easy to pick up without ever using it before and you don’t need another person to explain anything! I highly recommend this ANY teacher!!!
Mel Zig - Mrs. Ziegler
I have two preschool classes set up in Remind. I am also a parent signed up under my children’s teachers. I absolutely love this connection to parents and families. I wish my most recent conversations with individual parents would stay at the top of my list. It shows me messages that went out to every parent. For instance, my recent message history will say each parent’s name and the message I sent to the whole group. I also noticed that any time a parent messages me, I have to scroll through almost our entire message to get to the newest one. Maybe that’s just me. 🤷♀️ Seeing or finding my scheduled messages is always confusing for me as well. I wish that was its own tab or section to click on. Minor things, but those are my observations. Keep Remind the best parent/teacher communication out there!
MoodyGal2008 - Mediocre. Services its purposes.
Fine app considering it is free. The help/FAQ doesn’t match the actual app. Not sure if this is iOS specific, but even trying to change the “no replies” option can’t be done based on the archaic directions through Remind. There is a major character limit which is frustrating. It seems that at least a few sentences would be allowed. People (class members) are constantly confused about what they have to do or if they need the actual Remind app. I don’t find the layout to be particularly intuitive. Am definitely doing to be searching for an alternative. This app gives me some light frustration, but to reference the FAQ and it NOT having actual updated information and, in one case, the layout of the FAQ had the iOS instructions to the right and— wait for it— completely cut off the screen and out of view. Fine for a basic group messaging app, but even a minor setting change is an issue.
MyOpinionCereal - I need a little help.
Okay, so I'm having trouble with something from your app. When I tried to add my parent on the parents list, something pop up that said, "You're not allowed to make this parent-child relationship." I was confused so i searched about it. The only results I got were the instructions on how to add family members on the list(which I already knew how to do.) Asking my peers was no use either. They all told me they didn't come upon this and so now I'm struggling on this. From all that aside, this app is honestly very useful when it comes to my school work, since this is the only communication I can use to talk to my teachers for any work during quarantine and I'm always updated on announcements the things I need to do.
Kimberly Lynn88 - Remind App
I’ve used Remind 3 different times for 3 different seasons of sports, and I have been pleased with every experience thus far. It’s a great way to communicate with coaches, teachers and parents all in 1 app. I have 2 boys that are active in sports 8-9months throughout the year and if you have children in sports you know we are very busy majority of the time with work, school and practice all in a 24 hour period. If you have children you know that alone is a full time forever job so with that being said, if you have children in 3rd grade up. It is nice having their teachers just a message away. This app helps you stay organized and in the know, helping my life be a little less hectic! Remind is awesome keep up the good work😛
5 pets too many - Useful, but needs at least one addition
I teach preschool and just started using remind this school year. It is a great app and saves me a lot time since I can send out messages to everyone at once. My one problem is that I have a co-teacher and we have not been able to add her in a meaningful way without my winding up with her kids’ remind notices in my account. So consequently she is unable to communicate with parents directly. It would work much better if we both had the ability to communicate and could see all messages from parents but also remained independent.
The character count initially gave me problems but I solved the issue by creating a poster, taking a screen shot of it and then sending it out. I’ve also done that with forms, etc. Now it’s not a big deal.
3DolceGirls - Great Communicator with Some Limitations
I have been using this app for three years with my middle school students and parents. Overall, it works very well for quick notifications for tests, a quiz, or homework. However, I’ve found the area to compose your message is limited. The space does not allow for a list/items, multiple dates, and/or descriptions. Sending each item can make for one’s cell phone to be ringing like crazy. Granted, if I needed to send a full email I could. For the teachers that are trying to cleverly hook/get their students attention, I feel more messaging space is needed. Parents have been super excited about the app and the more students who have access to a smart phone, iPod, etc. the more engaged they are. The result is independent and responsible learners.
MacAlvin - Very good and useful but....
Hello developer... it’s nice to have used your app but I would like an option to permanently delete classes which I have mistakenly create not just archived it. It’s good to have the archive still for re use of the class but what if I don’t use it anymore?, please kindly put an option to delete permanently class that is for sure not to be use anymore so that it wouldn’t clutter and pop out it’s kinda annoying though sorry...
And one more thing, can you please allow at least 160 words to type on for my announcements for my classes. What I do nowadays is cut my messages to different messages kinda annoying to my students’ notification ... one notification is enough I think .
Anyway, thank you for your time indeed a very good useful app, keep up the good apps. God bless...
atibrooklyn2019 - AMAZING!!
I have never had an easier time communicating with teachers in all of my children’s school years! Teachers are so responsive, so informative and the app is so easy to use! This app has allowed me to really establish a relationship with my children’s teachers, receive important information from my youngest sons medical para quickly, to receive updates about my children and school schedules/events. This app has allowed me to be really involved in my children’s well being in school and in their academics! I LOVE remind and am truly grateful that our school is using it! Thank you to the developers of remind and to the staff for using this method of communication with us parents! P.S. 216 staff go over and beyond with their quick response time!
MomOf3Bubbers - Perfect way to communicate with teachers!
I love how easy this makes staying in communication with teachers and the PTA. If I forget something and need to drop it off, I text the teacher. If I’m at the store at night and want to know if the class needs something, I can find out quickly. If I need clarification on homework, easy. If it’s my child’s birthday and I need to know how many treats to bring, I just shoot a quick text. This morning I woke up to a PTA reminder that today was crazy hair day. I totally forgot, but my kids were able to participate. Last week my preschooler was having a melt down at drop off. A few minutes later the teacher sent me a pic of him sitting happily on the carpet to set my mind at ease. This app is a MUST!

karleasha - Fantastic!!
We all know on a daily basis we can be very busy and find it hard to remember all the upcoming events etc without having to write them down making notes etc - with remind we get it straight to our devises with the notifications making it 100x easier to keep up with our busy bees. 😘 🐝 📚
Teacher Miss C - Pretty good.
Reviewing as a teacher. Great app except there are things I can only do on a desktop that can not be performed on a phone. Also, you are able to set office hours for when you would be available to be contacted, however, you can be contacted at any hour regardless of office hours. This means I sometimes have parents contacting me at all hours of the night. To stop this I need to go into my settings when I go to sleep and again when I wake up to change the notification settings which is really irritating. Otherwise works great and I like the option to message my parents instead of call them (creating a stronger line of communication as it is easier to send a text than make a phone call- without giving out my personal phone number).
Danny D'mello photography - Communication
It is such an easy and fantastic way to communicate to our kids teachers I absolutely love it. I am kept up to date with how my child is progressing at school. I really am enjoying this app a great idea
Dgtrsvb - Messages too short
There is a very small character limit on messages that rarely fits what I want to say, so I either have to send more that one message to parents or cut down and give less detail. Not very good for communication and sharing, I don’t think! Plus, when I added a photo, it took away from my word limit, so I couldn’t have a caption! Am I missing something?!
Dj Jess❤️ - Remind
It’s the best app ever because it lets you communicate with other people and your teachers. And you are able to see all the work that your teacher sets for you
Melmooma - Great for communication between teachers and parents
Love that I can ask questions and be reminded of events at school and within the classroom with this app.
dessal18 - Better messaging
Would be great if the messages work like Facebook post where you can comment and not limited to a number of words. Also being able to include photos
bev walker - Remind
I love this app makes life so
Much easier for mums and teachers
Wally B 16 - Ok but notifications don’t acknowledge all the time
The app doesn’t acknowledge notifications unless you go back to the main menu then into the notification message
Copa daycare - Awesome app
Awesome app, best way to communicate with teachers! I love the sharing of photos
mkonmac - Painful
Automatically selects earpiece speaker and you have to manually go into sound options to select speaker mode every single time you play any sound recording.
momoftwoboys.xo - Attention All Teachers
Whether we want to embrace it or not, we now live in the digital world and must adapt old concepts to new technologies.
Remind is the perfect way for teachers to connect with students and parents alike. No more "forgotten" or "lost" notes from the teacher. This app is a must have for all school teachers.
Shout out to my sons Year 8 Science teacher at Waverley College for bringing this to my attention.
0212Y0818 - No good
I can't add my phone number
Oscarino4D - Great for teachers.
This gives me the ability to communicate with my students in a safe manner. It goes straight to their phones which they always have on them. It's a bit glitchy sometimes but overall works well. I strongly recommend it.
xtina_l3frost - Love it!
I love this app! It's great communication between myself and my sons teacher/s. I'm updated on notices, I'm sent pictures of activities or things he is learning. I can private message his teacher any concerns or ask questions or let her know anything about him like when he will be absent. I love it!
Me!74 - Best app by far
As a teacher, we don't always have time to contact all parents with messages without having to destroy a forest to tell them what's happening. Remind is the best app to keep parents up to date with what is happening in the classroom or at school.
Bmkberr - Using Remind to Connect
I've been using the Remind app to connect with other teachers in my Twitter PLN... It has been a great way to link up with teachers who use #aussieED.
I can see the practical benefits and will be using it for my class in the coming school year.
Also, after reading earlier reviews, I can see that the technicians at Remind have listened and modified the app to suit Australian users too!
SimpleCheese - AMAZING
Our school has never felt this wonderfully connected before, love it.
Spaaaaa - Parents
Can parents send messages to all the other parents and set up events? We are currently using it for our class and only the teacher can seem to send messages to all parents. Thanks
TheJeeFamily - Not designed for international market?
Only in process of setting up and already noticed that it only offers US time zones. Would be greatly appreciated if its extended to worldwide time zones (inc Sydney please!)
Also the only way to get people to "sign up" to your group is by texting a US number ... again no good for an international market. Shame!
DCGenesis - Simply fantastic
The fact that I can have a real time update about my kid and also be able to feedback is a brilliant idea. The app works seemlessly.
arobi78 - Awesome and I would recommend to all teachers
So easy to use
Yellowchalkie - OMG!!!! Love it!
It's my new best friend!!! Easy to use, instant messages sent to parents. You've got to give it a go - so simple.
Bret.jen - Reza
It's a really good app to communicate with teachers with and to know what's going on.....
Evadgib - Has potential
We need to be able to add states from other countries. It won't let me create an account without it.

Abcdefghij2017 - App won't open
I updated the app and now it won't open and my sons teacher has sent out messages and I can't even read them!
3 gold is why I'm here - Anonymous
Could be better
Jesabl - Amazing
Absolutely amazing app
YesThisIsEmma - Seems to only work in the USA
Shame, because I was excited to try the app, and it's available on the AU iTunes Store.
schoolmans - Don’t like
Don’t like make me work
ElmoRoxDaWourld - Not working
The set up process failed for me... Does this app work in Australia?

Mommywoman2 - So far so good
A colleague recommended using this app. Love that it is free and that I don't need to share my personal number with parents. Relatively easy to use, with email option for those who don't have cell phones/text messaging. Message is instantaneous and a faster (possibly even more efficient) way to communicate with parents. Would love to be able to send more than 1 photo at a time and to be able to create small groups within a class and save those groups so only certain parents see a message and I don’t have to keep finding their names for each new message.
Momsbusy - Love this app!
I have been using this app to communicate with my students’ parents for several years now. They tell me that they love it as much as I do! It’s a quick and easy. I only wish that Rogers’ network still supported text messages. Come on Rogers!!
Joy2drive - Needs to have a “confirmation” feature
I wanted to search for a school name “@“ when I was automatically joined to the wrong school / class. There is no confirmation if that is the actual class you want to join when you type a school name.
I am able to delete the school and class but the teacher’s name stating they are a “Remind Expert” or that I have joined a class and will automatically appear in “All classes” conversation without any messaging. I cannot delete not archive these names.
Even if I have deleted the class that I did not wish to join, I have had a few new teachers’ name that state they are a “Remind Expert” will appear in “All classes” without any messaging to them for two days.
Remind can consider a feature to ask to confirm to join a class instead of automatically having a person join a class. This avoid the mess I have of unwanted people in my conversation list that I cannot delete nor archive.
Original Freeze - Delete
Unable to delete classes no matter how many times you read the instructions. A simple swipe with a verification after would be so simple.
BecksPlays - Great, but..
Remind is a very great app. But you are only allowed to add 8 people to a group chat which is annoying
Mew❤️ - DO NOT GET I can’t delete it off my phone
It logged me out and says my password is wrong no Matterhorn many times I try it. I was going to make a new account and got half way through and changed my mind. It won’t let me get back to the starting screen so I deleted it and re downloaded it and it was just how I left it, it won’t forget my information! So I tried to delete it again and now it won’t even delete so it’s stuck on my phone!
Joe6357 - Impossible to clear the notification badge
Impossible to clear the notification badge even after reading all unread messages.
augh88888 - Blah
Won’t make notifications numbers go always. Says I have 36 notifications but there is not any new ones. Very annoying
milesonfoot - Relegated to 140 characters
Everything about this app would have been perfect if it were not for its 140 character limit. That’s not even enough to say what might be in an attachment.
Fionamac1 - Great tool for communicating
Great concept would love to be able to delete old messages though, couldn’t find an option anywhere, unless I’m missing something?
super pop girl - Thank you
Hello thank you so much I love it
cirep06 - Not good
If there was an option for 0 stars I would put that
Blaberface - Really disappointed
I'm really disappointed in the fact that I was threatened with my account being deleted for rules I didn't break. The rules I was accused of breaking was, impersonating someone or putting false information.
I didn't impersonate anyone and I didn't put false info.
To the developers, the person who threatened me is Meghan.
jeslo81 - Character lengths
Wish the characters would be more generous. It’s hard to write a message in one message
julian73824281737 - Dosent work
Tried to use it, said my birthday was incorrect. Never using this app again, 1 star.
GodSpeedCV - Clunky
Can’t remove old, unneeded message conversations like you can in every single other messaging app ever created; they just keep piling up, even if you’ve left the conversation or your kids are now 3 grades later. Stupidest app ever
HeyGrams - PTL !
Great. Site. I’m Just getting stsrted
d12367533213356 - Bad app
I don’t like this app and only use it because I have to to get info from my child’s teacher. There are years worth of old classrooms I can never figure out how to delete
BennysOwner - Terrible
Same issues as two years ago that users complained about seems to still be there in 2020. Awful App but unfortunately need to use it for my daughters class
pbianca80 - Notification Number
Notification number is stuck on 11, even though I have no reminders. Very annoying!
cmjg69 - Great app
Just wish we had more characters per post! And people in group had option to post to whole group and others in group could comment. This would definitely help with team building!
subathra.k - Its good
It helps me communicate with my child’s teacher and classmates
Robyn F - Great App - New suggestion
Love this app! Suggestion: add an option to send a daily report about a student to parents and/or between teachers (usually for a student with special needs). Include the ability to add questions with formats such as pull down or check boxes and a place to write comments. Allow for all connected teachers to edit the report and the owner to send it.
Deeshers - Great communication tools
This has been such a effective tool to communicate with students and colleagues. The set up is quick and easy with many access points, from phone, email, to pc.
Catalin V - Poor application
Poor application, a lot of errors.
Snakeytoobad - An awesome app
Fantastic way of keeping in touch with teachers .. It’s easy to use and uploading files and photos is quick and easy
A Really Famous Guy - Don’t ask me to review or it’s an automatic 1 star.
Appletree1995 - Handy App communication
Great tool for communicating with groups. If it wasn’t limited to 140 characters, I would give this app a higher rating.
Cool😄😎 - Review
I’ve enjoyed using remind over the past several years however I will not use this platform in the future. I’m limited with character spaces which is a challenge. Also, not everyone has been able to join due to phone carrier services this year and since there are other free apps, I will switch over in September
Mirmud - Overall good
The only thing that glitches is when 2 people are admins it will boot one person out when the other signs in. Kind of annoying
kathskore 101 - Why
It says I can’t use it anymore and I haft to buy it but in the App Store it says that I’m fine what is going on
Bobbofresh - Great App!
Remind was always great and has been a lifesaver during COVID.
The ability to communicate with the teachers both publicly and privately, get updates and feedback, and overall it’s great.
The only fixes/modifications I’d ask, is:
1. The possibility to listen to messages with both the earpiece and speakerphone when in the app [You can always use the web version or on a computer (and the audio is generally intended to be private), but an option may be nice].
2. The ability to send video when needed (only came to light as a result of Covid).
That being said, it’s a solid and reliable app for parent-teacher communication. Even the tech giants could learn some lessons from the quality put forth from the Remind development team.
skaarc2 - Less then one star at this point
Awful no support
Oatmeal149 - Awesome
This is an awesome communication program. Allows a lot of options and versatility.
teacher27748473 - Tips
I wish the announcements didn’t have a word count limit. It’s been very frustrating to work around. I do like the messaging part with each person though.

FunNightbloom - Ok
This app is good but it lacks customization. It lacks a dark mode and notification noises. I know that this app can’t be incredibly customizable but at least a little would be nice.
spyninjaforever - It gross do not download this app
This app sucks it’s keep crushing yuck
haxel!123! - Character counts
Are too short!
Fbpsjynx - Remind : Pros & Cons
- This is a great app that informs students and parents of upcoming work
- It is very easy to understand
- can u make it easier to change your profile
Solution : instead of making a small pencil button to edit your profile, either make it bigger or make a new line that say edit profile
- I was typing the class code but for some reason the app just stopped me from typing the rest of the code and I joined the wrong class
Solution : Pls make sure the app is functioning properly more often so people don’t run into problems
jendey1973 - Remind App
It is a good app: some limitations: msgs have limited characters, ‘conversations’ have limited attendees, which makes interactions with your whole class/families difficult. Today it has removed my powers to communicate with my class in a the most crucial of times, claiming that I violated a rule, which I can attest I did not.

Shopkins Cutie - Love this app
This app keeps me up to date with what’s going on at school and other events that take place outside school. I can send pictures and videos to teachers to ask them questions if I’m confused or didn’t go to school that day to ask if they had any work for me to do so I can go pick it up. I also like the emojis that let you tell the teachers and administrators what we think about the remind that was sent. I have my own remind class and it is good for letting people know what is going to be happening and to tell them due dates and things like that. Overall remind is a great app and it’s a good resource to get the news that will be going on. Yeet. ✋🏻🤚🏻hands down the best education app I’ve ever utilized!!☺️
Gorzagh - Really cool app; could easily increase functionality
First off: this app is great, and extremely convenient and efficient way of sending information to a class. My one main critique, although not dire, is something that could be easily fixed.I understand that this app is designed for schools and that’s great but I think it’s a useful tool for other things as well. It would be nice if instead of just having the option of “not affiliated” there was a custom affiliation that could be added. For example a private music teacher or dojo could list themselves there. Not super important even for these people, but it would be so easy to do and would encourage them to use this service a little more.
JSlos - Great
I just downloaded this app today because of what is happening out there I need to communicate with my parents so far I’m just starting to use it today got some parents accept my invite that’s really good and send a group message which is awesome I have to keep navigating through the app so I can get use to it so far I like it a lot.
Update!!! The more I use it the more I liked this app and is very very helpful. with this app I’m able to communicate with all my parents and they are responding back to me and sending pictures and videos of the children’s doing work at home during this pandemic!!! This is really a great app thank you. I recommend it to my co teachers and they are starting to use it 😁!!!
KronnHunter - Reminds me of the DMV
Seems like it should be an essential app. Communicate with teachers and students. Make progress. Learn. Fail. Succeed. Fail some more. Succeed again. I love education. It’s one part of life that is constantly evolving.
Bit this app needs some serious improvement and it seems like no one is even looking.
I want to send my daughter’s teacher a message. He sends the entire class updates fairly regularly so he is definitely a user. I try first through his post to send him a direct reply. Nope. Can’t do that. So I search for his name. I enter his full last name and get a list of people that aren’t even remotely similar to what I typed. So I search by all names but the list is truncated at the first part of the M’s. Both his first and last names begin after that. Reverse order? No luck there either.
Frustrating, to say the least. All I want to do is communicate with someone. Isn’t that what the app is for? Then why should it be difficult to do that?
It shouldn’t be difficult to do the very something for which the app is designed. Since it is in this case, there is no way the app can receive any more than the two stars I gave it. Why two and not one? Because it’s a good concept. Now it has failed. No problem. Now fix it.
As for the DMV reference... Thank you for reading. :-).
North Parian - Love Remind! Wishing for a Teacher Subscription
I love remind and it’s option to translate between languages! The convenience of communicating with parents has helped foster a family-like classroom environment. I wish my principal would subscribe to the school-wide plan so that I could call parents through Remind and do-away with the character limits. However, she is not interested in paying for the subscription (despite my many efforts). I wish there were an option that would allow individual teachers to subscribe to these features. I would definitely pay out-of-pocket for this ability! Remind, you have changed my classroom for the better! Thank you!
mmsmeow - Notifications are a problem
I am forced to use this app due to the new Verizon that will eliminate my use of the text message feature. The app now with the notifications on shows I have 3 unread messages yet all my messages are read. This is a problem because now I have no idea if I have actual messages or not due to this glitch. I have tried everything I can think of and the notification will not go away. I even uninstalled the app and reinstalled it which clearly doesn’t fix the problems. The app is glitchy and confusing because it has messages from two different groups o joined in the same message thread. I prefer the text messages! I think Verizon is being unfair but this is what we get for electing Trump because he allowed net neutrality to exist-net neutrality is why Verizon can do this to Remind.
avid teacher in California - Great communication tool, but...
I use Remind all the time. Such a great tool for communication with students, parents, etc. I use it most on field trips. When the kids (high school) are let free for lunch, we use it to get them back together in time for our bus departure. No more late students! Also, I love the fact that you can schedule messages ahead of time & attach photos, files, etc. A true time saver. So why only 3 stars? First, the character limit is challenging. I sometimes have to send multiple messages instead of one and then I get irate replies from parents/students. Second, and more importantly, it’s been MONTHS and the false notifications still hasn’t been fixed. I’m showing 2 missed messages and I can’t get rid of the false missed message notification. It drives me crazy. Please fix this!
dancingmamabee - Good and very useful but could use some improvement for distance learning
I love this app and am happy my district decided to start using it. It makes communicating with teachers the easiest it’s ever been and I have had kids in school for many years. I look forward to being able to quickly reach my kids teachers during our distance learning over the coming weeks. The only thing I would like to see is a way to organize. It would be wonderful if I could easily glance and be able to tell the chat streams apart by grade or student or even school. As my kids are in a few different classes that are titled similarly. Maybe be able to group them up myself on my screen. Something anyway. Otherwise it’s a wonderful app.
Str8nSF - Great app, one suggestion...
Hello Remind development team! Thank you for providing an easy to use, and extremely necessary communications tool for students, teachers, parents, and administrators at our nation's institutions of learning. My family relies on Remind daily to keep informed of the latest class assignments, announcements, and school administration communications. I would like to make one suggestion related to notifications. I would like to customize notifications for each class that I belong to, such that I may choose the type of notification that I receive from each class. I know that simple is always better, but I would really like to see this 'complication' implemented if possible. Thank you again for a really great app!
ucanlearn - Great for communication
This App has been instrumental in helping our After School Program stay connected with our parents! When we are away on field trips we have this tool to send pictures of the great things we are doing! When our pick up location changes, we are able to send clear directions to the new pick-up area on campus with an image of the location attached. In meetings we can use the notification percentages to discuss communication responses and better ways of executing information. We like the fact that our sent messages must be brief and to the point. Thanks for creating such a wonderful app for parent/teacher communication.
Kommander K - Almost Amazing
The app a great alternative to getting text messages in a ton of threads for different functions and has many more functions and controls which i don't even know if you can do with texting. However, it lacks the instant aspect of the text messages. Yes, notifications come through instantly, but to view them or reply, it takes a while. The notification system within the app feels glitchy, like how it doesn't show the new message instantly, the "unread" indicator doesn't always go away after it is read in all classes or within the class sometimes, and the app number badge doesn't go away all the time. Overall though, the app works well except for those annoying tendencies.
WPMommy - Excellent Communication Tool for Educators
Love this App as a mother and former educator and counselor, this application has been proven to be a quick Communication resource for my kids that are in various extra-curricular activities, as well as, various grade levels. I'm able to respond to the coaches, band directors and/or coordinators of the different organizations, activities and functions. When there are alerts, or important information that is being relayed and the person sending the information allows you to respond you are able to ask pertinent questions that triggers them to maybe remember things they should send out to the rest of the group! 😇 I Love 💕 Remind 🙏🏈🚌 🎾🎺 🎶 🏀🧐
worried mom. - I was hacked!!! My daughter may be kicked from swim thanks to this.
While I was sleeping someone wrote bad messages to my daughters school swim team group consisting of faculty parents and students. They used curse words and my daughter woke me up to find out what was going on and while the phone was sitting on my night stand with no one touching the phone, two more messages showing to come from me, appeared with more nasty words. I use this app to keep track of my kids school work and extracurricular activities. I have deleted the app, called the police to report this and have also reported this to my phone carrier. I was instructed to write a review about this experience to let the developers of this app know so that they can fix this so this does not happen again. My daughter may be kicked off the swim team over this!! Please fix this so no parent has to go through this EVER AGAIN. Sincerely, worried mom of crying daughter.
MaddYd54321 - App is great, but photo problem
I love this app. I am a preschool teacher, and it is a great way to communicate with the parents of my students. That being said, I find the fact that you can only send one photo at a time to be a HUGE downside. I don't know if any of you have ever tried to take a picture of 10 one year olds where they are all looking at the camera and seem to be having a relatively good time, but it's almost impossible. It would be much more convenient if I were able to make an announcement and send a group of photos to all of the families, rather than having to send an individual to each family or blowing up all of their phones by sending each picture one by one to the whole class. Any ideas on if you guys will be fixing this issue?
Ambivalent Disaster - Good in Theory; Not Useful
This app could be very useful but it falls short. I was added to one son’s school announcements fine but the other son’s school has not worked all year for me. The teacher had to individually send me the same information than the other parents. When she left in December, I received no more pictures, updates, or announcements even though the teacher was sending them.
I also hoped this would be a good way to contact other parents for carpooling or parties. So far, I have never seen another parent in any of the “groups” so this seems to be more of a one-on-one app. I had asked the school multiple times to help fix this problem but no one knew what to do.
If these issues are fixed and it becomes more practical, I will change my rating.
Sis Lawson - Cost
I love the app and being real time. It allows the teacher 24/7 access to parents. The only bad thing is Verizon is going to charge teachers a fee for distribution of text messages. This in no way pertains to the app this is total on Verizon. I don’t know if some input from the creators would help with this matter or not. Teachers can’t offed these cost bc it would mount to millions of dollars. I’m sure this isn’t what the creators intended. Teachers just can’t afford the cost. So please anyone with Verizon call the head office and let them know. If enough people complain maybe Verizon will back down and change their position on this. To good of an app to have this done to it.
sorry excuse for an app!!! - Cryptic
This app is a bit confusing to navigate and make me severely miss last year’s simple colored dittos of the whole month in advance, which I could just hang and refer to visually ahead of time. While I understand this is the 1st go with these apps, it would have been nice to transition with the calendars also being sent out, which wouldn’t be too much to ask for (IMO). I’m still not sure how to get the most out of this app (IN ADDITION TO the other apps we must be separately signed in to). I, like other parents, am a bit frustrated with the transition and usability of all the different apps. I will continue to attempt to navigate this and my other two apps (as per students enrolled in separate classrooms), but was there no way to simply use one app that you could access each of our children’s classrooms as well? (Because those are each different and equally cryptic in nature). I’m a bit frustrated...
Beachbumaak - Great app
I think this app is a great way to communicate with my kids’ many teachers. My only drawback is that you cannot group the classes. It would be even better if you could separate the classes under different “kids”. I have a high schooler, a middle schooler, and two in elementary school. The classes are usually labeled under the teachers name, and not necessarily the grade. This makes it kind of confusing if you don’t know every teachers name for all of their classes. I have about 20 classes all in one line and there’s no way to group them together to help differentiate them. High school classes mixed with elementary Lolol. Other than that, it’s great. If they fix it so you can clump the classes together per kid, I’d give it 5 stars!
Trinick71 - Great for high school
Remind offers a great way to find students where they are: on their phones! My students rarely check email, but Remind allows me to text them without any creepy exchange of numbers! I choose to allow students to contact me as well, but that’s the teacher’s choice. You can send whole class messages, individual messages, or even a group message. Warning: If you send a message to a group (not whole class), then kids in the group see one another’s responses; if you send a whole class message, then only you see any student responses. Overall, I love Remind and have been using it for quite a while.
chelseahunt - Great communication app
We use this for school to keep in touch with teachers and also for sports! Creating and adding to groups is very easy! I did have an issue the other day but the support team was fast and friendly and solved my issue very quickly! I highly recommend this app for teachers or anyone who has a large group of people you need to be in contact with! The only thing I don’t like is when sending a message to my entire group they only give you 140 characters per message, so I have to break it up into 3 and 4 messages to say when needs to be said 😫 if they changed that I would love the app even more!
Cool awesome kid face - Suggestion?
I love this app!!! It really lets me get in touch with my teachers about assignments and even lets me connect with a club I've started!
However, I am a very talkative and expressive person, so I feel like adding videos would be able to give more of a learning experience.
For instance, maybe if a teacher needed to explain a question in the homework packet and not many people got it from the Announcement message, the teacher would be helping kids just by texting.
As I student myself, I've noticed I begin to pick up on things in class better when I hear the teachers voice AND see an example, see them guiding me along. While the voice clips help some what, it doesn't help to the full extent.
ggonzalvt - Sorta like private IM
Such a great app to maintain communication with my children’s teachers… It’s almost like instant messenger. It’s quick and easy (and they don’t get my phone number and I don’t get their phone number), but I have it set up to receive notifications and alerts. I have one high needs child who requires me to have constant communication with her teacher, and my other child has a super active class. Her teachers love to give us weekly announcements for what they have planned for the week.
I’m not sure how they do it because it does come in choppy in about 6/7 messages- so that could be better. But, otherwise, I have no complaints.
nicole marie NJ - Remind is amazing!
“Remind” is an amazing app! It helps us parents keep in touch and updated with the teachers, as well as each other! Gone are the days where we have to send notes in with our children for early dismissal, being absent etc. This app has been a total convenience for me and I love it! The teachers even post pictures of our children when they have special activities or occasions, so we get to see what’s going on. My son loves when I pick him up from school and mention the pictures his teacher posted of him and his classmates! Whoever came up with this idea is a genius!

nrbrous - Works great, needs small tweaks.
I think of little things every once in awhile that could be better when using this app, but they obviously aren’t that big of a deal since I can only remember one right now. I enjoy this app, and it makes my life easier by also having the kids install it on their phone and checking for homework and test updates. I would like to see the requirements change for allowing minors to use the app. As of right now, I am suppose to send a signed form. If there can be a simple text to a parent/guardian’s number to reply “allowed” or “not allowed”, that would be great. Thank you for creating this!
Nyaht - Please add a DELETE option!
I used this app a few years ago with my oldest and I loved it! Now that my second has the same teacher we are using it again and I HATE IT! There is no way to delete all the old conversations from my oldests class. I can “leave the conversation” but it doesn’t delete them from my message board. It also still has all the parents from the first class, so I can’t send messages to any of them because I am not sure which of them are from oldests class and which are from this year. Ugh so frustrating!!! I can only imagine what will happen when I have 2 kids teachers using this app. 😱
Lovetoteach4thgrade - Total Waste of Time
This app is a total waste of time! I spent my parent conference day trying to get 👥 parents on the Remind app and only two were able to get on it. There was some sort of glitch where it was sending an error message when parents were putting in their phone number stating that their phone number had to be different than the students. So somehow the app was making an assumption that in registering it was the students not the parents and they wanted another phone number. I would rather pay money and have something that works efficiently than having waste five minutes with each parent trying to get them on an app that would not accept a phone number. Really disappointed and frustrated. The worst part is there’s not even a phone number to call somebody to sort it out or have them walk you through it.
️Blan - Great app for parent and teachers.
I’m so much more aware of what is happening in my kids classrooms. I love the pictures I get to see and it’s beyond easy. I had to ask about a project one particular day that was happening and was answered by my child’s teacher before bringing my girl to school that day. I’m not into apps that are difficult to understand since I’m a mom to 7 kids who doesn't have a ton of extra time. If this app was difficult I wouldn’t use it. It’s so well put together. I use it daily:) Great job developers!
I wish all my kids teachers would use this app. I would be so much more involved if they did.
Zombiekittiez - Notification Alerts are Badly Implemented
The app is functional to keep you from having to use cell numbers to communicate with students, but there is a pretty broken issue. The app has invisible alerts for things you can’t clear. Mine sits at 15 right now. What is it alerting me to? No clue. How do I clear it? No idea. Basically this means that I need to keep alerts off because they don’t actually come up with new messages- meaning that I must manually check the system from time to time and won’t just be able to treat it like a proper messaging program. There are too many bells and whistles and if I find a simpler program, I’ll make the transition. I’d honestly be happy to pay for an app that worked like this and let me use alerts by only coming up with new messages like would be actually helpful.
AnnieMomofTrios - Parents with Multiples
This app is ok but if you have triplets like we do and our children have 5 teachers they rotate classes with then it’s awful. You can only communicate with one teacher. You can receive messages from them all or respond if they personally start a conversation with you but you cannot reach out to each one individually if you have questions or concerns. This is incredibly frustrating when some teachers only use the app and rarely check email. I end up using the app to ask the one teacher I can contact to pass a message or have to call the school and leave a message and wait until after hours for a return call.
I tried to contact Remind but haven’t been able to find a phone number that works. Customer Service Rating =0 stars. I only hope the middle school doesn’t use this next year.
Teacher Concerned - Allows anonymous abuse
I received an obscene, insulting message on Remind, supposedly from one of my students. The student’s mother stated that she’d gotten a new phone and no longer was receiving Remind messages. I reported, blocked, and dropped the user from my class and contacted Remind, but I have no way of learning who sent me this message unless I call the number that appeared with it on my cell. This number appears to be from Illinois, not my state, and it doesn’t match my student’s former cell phone number, so I want to know how someone could be in my class on Remind receiving my messages impersonating another student. I want to call and speak to a real person at Remind because I need to address it if one of my students sent me this message. I am upset and questioning the identities of all of the users in my class.
butttttterfly - Disregarded “Office Hours” (text sound & popup)
I am a teacher & I have used Remind101 for several years now. Even though I have my “Office Hours” set, I am still receiving message popups on my screen (that I can read), along with the message notification sound. Sadly, I will be joining Class Tag, Class Dojo, or Kahoot if this isn't resolved by the end of the school year. I am trying really hard to set personal boundaries with parents & myself alike—-hearing & seeing Remind messages on my phone during my time to disconnect (and at any hour day or night) is super frustrating. I love how easy the app is to manage & use, so I really hope they fix this issue by giving the option to disable this, or just actually stick with turning everything off during office hours (as it is understood to be).
Taplife - Dam you Verizon
I’m writing this review because I love remind. It’s so easy to use and very helpful in reaching our people. I am also writing this review to point out why I refuse to use companies like Verizon. This spoiled brat bullies with terrible customer service who not only take advantage of their customers but also insists on harming other corporations whenever they can. I’m glad remind has a workaround for text messaging but Verizon should be penalized for attacking another company due to their shortcomings. Take note if you are a Verizon customer leave them ASAP they don’t care about you. Even the “can you hear me now ?” guy left. When are you going to leave? Proud to have never been a Verizon customer.
Vvshayshaykaykay - Amazing Communication with Parents
I downloaded remind after google searching parent teacher communication methods. I have not been disappointed at all. Every day I sent a homework announcement, and I can check to make sure the message has been delivered and seen by each recipient. I can communicate with parents quickly and I have no need to give out my personal cell phone number, which makes it that much more amazing! I can send photos, and even communicate with a parent or a group at one time! I love it!! I have told other teachers about it at my school and they have started using it too!
Muneca1013 - ok when it works..
I have had to download this twice this year and go find all the codes for the teachers yet again to get them back on this thing again even though I personally did not change a thing! It was just the app... I must not have logged into it often enough for it during the year is the only thing i can think off...or it was just an odd hideous glitch that made me start from scratch....Not fun.
Other than that it works just fine...but I don’t see how it’s much diff from getting this info via text instead of both ways??Or why I would even need the app since i’m getting the info via text anyway...
I don’t know. I do know the school makes us use this so there you go. Just my honest opinion...
sonjasettle - So Much Better Than Email
Class members receive your messages immediately on their phones with Remind. In contrast, if you use email, they won’t receive the message until the next time they check their email, which is highly variable depending on the person, the time of day, and the day of the week (for example some people check their email constantly on a weekday and then maybe only once or twice on the weekend).
Additionally, this is a safe way to text information to class members without having to share your personal cell phone number.
Kitty.Pleease - I meant to put 4.5 but 4 will do
Let’s get started, So I use remind as a way to communicate better with some of parents on my cheer team. And, I love it because it keeps things confidential and it’s just a lot better than standard group chats, for obvious reasons. HOWEVER!!!!!! One thing that need to change is the word/character count 🤬🤬🤬
This freaking character count gets on my last nerves I wish it was bigger or at least more sustainable so INSTEAD of letters make it words because how TF does anyone even have time to think or how to make it shorter. I wanna be fast but also make sense and look like I know what I am talk about... so yea just fix the word/character count and we’ll be good
Mr.Professional2 - Way to organize
Hey, my name is Charles. Remind is a great resource for having students interact with on going organized lesson plans, and direct instructors assistance with instructors feedback. This app provides a way for the instructors to inform me as a student the test, quizzes, homework, and etc is to be completed, or expected on the specific instructed time or day. This helps me to stay on top of the way the course is progressing. The instructor has always been available to assist me when I ran into problems completing, understanding , or entering my assignments as the course progress, not after I failed to keep up, or comprehend the information.
PaigeGi - Remind Sustains Families
Our community, our city, our state, and our nation are only as strong as the roots of the new generation’s foundation.
It begins with strong communication between all stakeholders: Students, parents, schools, and unending ties within the community structure. Just a few days of interrupted media links creates darkness which causes disturbing factors such as increasing the rate of school drop-outs, missing the opportunity to earn a four year college scholarship, even saving a child’s life.
REMIND is an integral part of America’s School Community. For it’s the link that change lives for the better and keep our families and communities united.
REMIND MUST REMAIN FREE
MisfitsFiend138 - Keep connected!.
I love this app!. I am associated with two different groups on it, and it keeps me connected with teachers and leaders for both of my girls.
I like that, you can send a message directly to them, and they respond back. It keeps the messages so we can refer back to them, but also keeps it private in case that is needed.
Being apart of the groups you can share a link associated with it to other moms, or people that are in the same class ; (you can’t do that with other kinds of apps usually the owner of the group has to do that; so it’s a nice feature)
I find it to be a great app!.
Ha1o UNSC - Can’t live without
Ever wish you didn’t have to beg for forms, have need to update a class location, cancel a game last minute, encourage over a long weekend, or invite to google classroom to review up coming units... you name it! We have all been there and you wish you could tell your class something they need to know and tell them now! Remind does all of that! My favorite is scheduling messages to deliver so I don’t have to think about. Or those times I’m in the grocery store and “oh shoot,” I hope my class remembers their forms tomorrow. Text a message and done they are reminded and I keep shopping.
MomOf2OfAKind - Needs updating
This app is great for parent/teacher communication. The app doesn’t allow parents to do much of anything except send the teacher a message or add the class. My child’s classes from the previous year are still listed until the teacher removes me. You can’t label the classes how you want to so that you can arrange them in class period order. It won’t let you lost your child unless it finds them in the schools listing. How do teachers know what child’s parent you are if there is more than 1 with same last name? It doesn’t allow the parents to modify the app on their end only teachers can. Parents should be allowed to determine how they want to label and see things on their devices.
Ps4 for the win - Great app, however...
This a great app for students, parents, and teachers to communicate with each other. I do have one problem though. I did text my friend and did join a class that I no longer take. However, I am not able to delete the conversations between said friend and my old class. It’s not a huge problem now but I do believe that it will become troublesome later on as the years pass by. It would be a mess! It’d be nice if in the next update we would be able to delete unneeded conversations to keep organized. Otherwise, I don’t really have a problem with this app. Thank you for taking the time to read this. :)
A Proud Texas Teacher - A great resource
Remind is a great resource always, but especially during this time that we are dealing with the cornonavirus! I have connected with students and parents daily whether just making a simple connection to say hi and encourage students to bring some normalcy to their days or to provide guidance or answer questions and almost tutor online. Remind has been a wonderful resource. I don’t know how I would have gotten through this time without this service! Thank you, Remind, and all of the people behind the scenes that has made it possible for me to support my students!!!!
#nolongerafan - Still deserve a four can’t send multiple photos.
I lost everything. It said ‘hit a snag , try again later’ a few minutes I was sign out. Told to put my password , I didn’t know it. I created one. New account . Where are all the class? All the assignments I posted to be send at a later day I have no access to now. I went back delete the app , reopened it, new account. Was it because I put a child last name? I don’t know . I think the reason I have a new account it’s because of the auto email set up that was already written and I have different names for different accounts. It may have been my fault for having a new account.
Spanish Mama 112 - Good app
I have used this app several years for classroom communication and been very pleased with it. I love the fact that parent comments hit my text messaging on my phone. I also love the translating options for parents and teachers as I teach in a dual language program. The here are a few suggestions that I would make. One miss for me would be that when my partner-teacher messages parents, I cannot see that communication. It has caused some double messages being sent out and some problems when her answer to a parent question was slightly different than mine. Another would be a class feed to share pics.
LeslieIrene - So far so good & so easy!
Easy to use interface of communication between parent/teacher! Stay in the loop of your child’s schooling, without the disconnect of emails or waiting for conferences. I will say my sons teacher is so good about responding and answering any questions as well as keeping us updated of class events. She is so prompt at responding, and genuinely wants the involvement and open line of communication for her class to home, which this app facilitates. I know this isn’t always the case, nor is it expected. For that I am so grateful for not just this app, but my sons teacher as well! Thank you Remind!
BusyAKmama - Not user friendly
I have been super irritated with this app when it comes to trying to communicate with the teachers. I can receive their messages successfully. However, if they have their replies turned off, it gets complicated. I am told to send them an announcement individually. So I waste several minutes of my time typing out a message that disappears into the void immediately, with no trace or explanation of what happened. If they do have settings that allow me to send them a message, I can see it at first, but it disappears if I leave the page. I can only retrieve that message if I have a history emailed to me or go online. It kind of makes having the app pointless. There is potential here, but needs a lot of work to make it user friendly.
Gigi #1 - Fantastic way to Communicate
The Remind App is a wonderful tool to use in the classroom. I’m a former first grade teacher and I wish I would have had this app when I was teaching. My middle schooler’s teachers use this app as a way to communicate homework, send parents short videos to be able to help our kids, etc... The teachers of my preschool age children use the app to send reminders about school events, show n tell, snack reminders, send pictures of my kids during the day, etc... If you’re a teacher looking for an app to help you stay in contact with your parents, I recommend Remind.
AaronTibbs - Great! Just one suggestion...
I love this app. I have used it many times as a student, and it works perfectly. As an owner of a couple, there is just one thing. I would love, if it’s possible, to be able to send out polls and create events. It is difficult to ask everyone to send back a response, and to sort the responses, but a poll would make it a lot easier for both parties. The other thing is that the character limit is hard to keep, and usually just creates more messages. So if that could be improved, that would be great as well. Overall, a great app, and very useful
AJP-1963 - Every educator should have this
Very useful app. Effective yet safe way to communicate with students and parents. Only wish there was a way to CC administrators automatically (as this is my standard practice when communicating via email).
By the way, Remind is a great tool for sending lesson plans to students whenever you are out. If you message your students directly, you don’t have to worry about whether or not the substitute teacher will follow your plans.
Works great for lost-and-found. Did someone leave a jacket or lunchbox behind? Take a picture of it and message the class.

@illonaduffy @DrZeroCraic @HSELive I think there is a big need for communication about this. Need to remind people that 2 weeks will pass, can catch up with sports training, school, work after. Okay it may be inconvenient but much better than being responsible for passing it to others (team mates, colleagues.....
Someone remind me to cut off all communication from people i went to high school with. 🥴
And yet...apps like Remind or Talking Points can’t be used in some school districts. These apps make communication 🔥🔥🔥
@geegee51826291 My oldest is 42, not a product of the liberal school. I love her, but its more important that she love God but she has turned her back on Him. So my communication now is simply to thank her for messaging and remind her she needs to be checking her relationship with God not me.

Remind is a communication platform that helps every student succeed. Whether you're in the classroom, at home, or anywhere in between, Remind makes it easy to stay connected to your school community.
@kellywchris Lots of communication. I am loving using Remind so far. It was important to me that parents see the classroom and be familiar with who I am- so I sent out a video classroom tour! The parents appreciated it- especially those of students new to the school! #saskedchat
