Using Bloomz with Our Robotics Team

I love using Bloomz to communicate with parents for my robotics team! I coach students in grades 3rd-6th for robotics. We meet weekly and have all day tournaments on the weekends at least once a month. All of my student team members are in different classes and grade levels. Bloomz makes it so easy to share information about practices and tournaments with parents.
Before using Bloomz, I would have to type up a formal letter/announcement for parents, print it off, and then deliver it to numerous classes. Bloomz saves me so much time! I also love that I can see which parents have actually viewed the information so I know whom to follow-up with about urgent or important information.
We recently competed in the State tournament with over 200 teams in attendance. There were lots of maps, agendas, and general information that had to be shared with parents. I easily uploaded all of the documents to Bloomz for parents to have electronically to refer to whenever they needed it.
I highly recommend Bloomz to classroom teachers for their regular classroom and any other clubs they may sponsor or coach!

Rachel Nesbit is a teacher at Blue Academy in Indianapolis. Working in Decatur Township at this STEM Focus School, Rachel uses Bloomz for her classroom as well as for clubs she leads after school. The students in her robotics club competed in the VEX Robotics National Championship. They placed 24th out of 200 teams. Congratulations to the team!
