Sign Up to Receive Important School-wide Communication
Shoesmith will continue to use Remind, school-wide, for the 2020-2021 school year! If you're not already familiar with Remind, it's a classroom and school communication tool that makes it easy to stay involved with your child's learning. Remind is free to use, and you'll be able to get and send messages on any device—even a simple text from your phone!
As part of this rollout, we are having parents join Shoesmith Remind by visiting https://www.remind.com/join/shoesmithe.
Here is a video demo to see how Remind works. We're excited to make connecting with our families more engaging!
