eNews: Coz dogs are cute!

March 2023

How easy can parents access your content?

Let's cut to the chase. If you make content available on a mobile phone, engagement increases.

Like really, really increases. Our FREE app is the gateway to giving your community convenient access. And there's nothing you have to do. Content from your website automatically populates the app.

There's a misconception that an app requires admin time. That may be true of other school apps, but because ours is integrated with your website, you don't have to do a thing. Other than of course, encouraging your parents to download it.

The app if free to schools.

Please spend a few minutes and see how the app works with your website and see how easy parents can access your content.

You can find support material for the app by clicking here.
