Teachers love Smore

“Before Smore, I only reached parents when I made phone calls or sent emails about specific students. This week at open house, it was awesome to hear from parents that they read and appreciated my Smore Newsletter!”

“With Smore, my newsletters are ‘works of heart’ from the school, filled with pictures of our students, videos, articles, clip art, and other engaging tools to keep our faculty and families informed.”

“Before Smore, it was hard to get information out to all families. Now, I not only reach all families but love seeing their interactions with them! Smore is amazing!”

“Before Smore, I had a hard time being creative in my announcements for online classes. Now my ‘newsletters’ as announcements look engaging.”
