OK gang- we just found a way to help collect books at the end of the year. First, we create a list of ALL BOOKS OUT.
Then, we work with our attendance person to set up a parlant call. (Phone Home!) She helped us get our own account using the school software. We input the list of names with overdues and set up the time and date the call will go out. Then- I record a message to the parents and save it. Once we are all done, the calls go out when we specify and the books come rolling in!
Tonight will be the 3rd time we have tried it- and I am amazed it its success! Try it!
