Remind texts are our primary form of communication. Text “@mxteens” to 81010 to sign up for Remind texts. Standard text rates apply. Remind is a mass messaging service that we use to communicate information to students and parents regarding upcoming events and general things to know!
style="hyphens: none;"GroupMe is our primary form of digital relationship-building and communication with students. We have three separate GroupMe chats that are “officially” associated with MXteens. One for fun conversation and relationship building, the second strictly for event info, and the third for event photo sharing. Download the app, then text Michalie to have her add you to the GroupMes!

Parents, we definitely recommend doing a little research when it comes to deciding whether or not your student is ready to have the social media apps listed above. Apps like GroupMe, Instagram, and Facebook can open doors to unsafe online environments for your child if they are used incorrectly. It’s important to talk with your student about how to use these apps safely BEFORE letting them download and use them. You know your child and what they can and can’t handle better than anyone!

Pay special attention to Instagram, Snapchat, TikTok, and GroupMe. These are especially popular right now!
