ClassTag

The Technology: ClassTag

ClassTag is a free website that allows you to easily email all your student’s parents at one time. You can use it to send announcements, event information (along with an RSVP link), requests for volunteers, or parent/teacher conference details. ClassTag also makes it possible for you to quickly email photos and weekly updates.

You can also use ClassTag to organize volunteers. Simply send parents an invitation to volunteer. Then, once they receive it, they can choose to click to sign up, and their commitment will appear on both their dashboard and yours. 

Begin by signing up for a free ClassTag account. Then, create a class and populate it with your students’ names and their parents’ email addresses.

In Your Classroom

  • ClassTag is a relatively new product, and it will be interesting to see what features get added over time. Right now, it’s a great way to keep in touch with parents and easily share photos, newsletters and announcements.
  • Don’t worry about sending unwanted emails to your parents– they can opt out of any of the categories so that they will only get the emails they prefer.
