Want a really fast way to create newsletters that parents will read?
Want parents to be able to read your newsletter on the go, easily click on your recommended links, add important dates to their online calendars and even translate your news to other languages?
If you're not happy with your current classroom newsletter system or if you just want to change things up for next year, you might want to check out MailChimp.
MailChimp is an email marketing service provider, typically used by businesses to communicate with their customers. Its purpose is to help individuals or businesses quickly and easily create and send emails that recipients will want to read. MailChimp is typically used by businesses, but I think it's also perfect for classroom use. Although teachers are certainly not marketing to parents, user-friendly and accessible newsletters are essential.
