In West Side Montessori’s first newsletter of the 2013-14 school year you were encourage to connect with us by reading this weekly newsletter, visiting our website, and adding firstname.lastname@example.org to your email contacts. Many of you took the opportunity to follow WSM on Facebook since the start of school as well.
This week you can learn how to join Twitter and receive text messages to your phone from WSM. It is that simple to begin to receive announcements and reminders on your mobile device.
First, if you don’t already have a Twitter account, follow these visual directions from WikiHow to create an account. Once your account is set-up, enter @WSMontessori in the search window and click FOLLOW.
Second, click on the arrow next to FOLLOWING and select Turn on Mobile Notifications. This will prompt you to activate your mobile phone. Once those settings are confirmed, that’s it. Your mobile device will now receive text messages for school delays and closings, announcements, and reminders.
UPDATE: If you don't want to setup a Twitter account, Twitter has directions for setting a FastFollow feature on your mobile device. Click here to view those directions. The Twitter shortcode in the US for all carriers is 40404 .
