Elementary school teachers at P.S. 036 Margaret Douglas are embracing KiNVO messaging to step up their communication with families. Check out how these three educators at this Morningside Heights K-6 school are ensuring their students’ families stay informed and engaged.
Maureen Donohue, who wrapped up her first year at Margaret Douglas after three years teaching in the South Bronx, appreciates that KiNVO keeps parents in the loop. “I was always pretty good at sending home letters,” Maureen says,” but it’s great for those parents who are so busy they don’t have time to look through their child’s folder.”
Messages are especially handy when her students forget to bring home their behavior charts, since a quick text reveals to parents how their child did that day. “Communication via KiNVO is more consistent,” notes Donohue, who teaches in a third grade self-contained classroom.
