Remind 101 FOR 157c Booster Events

Remind 101 App is a reminder system to send out quick, short reminders via text or email about upcoming news. The 157C Boosters (Band, Orchestra, Athletic, Chorus, Family School Partnership & Education Foundation) use Remind 101 to send out reminders regarding hot lunches, ticket sales, volunteer needs, order deadlines, etc. New restrictions from Remind have forced us to create multiple groups to keep our audience for each group under 150 people. Below are the different groups created for the 157C Booster Remind 101.


Please choose the one or two that apply to you.


Grand Prairie parent Remind Text 81010 the message: @gp157cb

Chelsea parent Remind Text 81010 the message: @ch157cb

Hickory Creek parent Remind Text 81010 the message: @hc157cb


All three schools parent Remind (choose this if you have two or more schools with children and don’t want to get two individual messages.)
