The NAESP Conference is coming up soon (July 10 – 12) in Spokane, Washington, and TeacherLists can’t wait to see you there! You can find us at booth #616. Just like in years past, we’ll be giving away free T-shirts for your principals so make sure to stop by early! We’ll also have tons of great information about using TeacherLists!
What is TeacherLists you ask?
TeacherLists connects your back-to-school supply lists to Target, Walmart, Amazon, Office Depot, Staples and other major retailers, all for free! That’s right. TeacherLists is 100% free for schools! What’s even more impressive is that your classroom supply lists will be ADA-compliant. All parents will be able to access their child’s supply lists regardless of their ability.
TeacherLists is a smart, paper-free school supply list solution (you’ll love it)!
That’s right, no more sending printed lists home in backpacks, only to end up lost or destroyed. Any designated person from your school can upload lists in virtually any format to the platform … even your parent group! Once the lists are ready, simply share the exact supply list directly with parents. They can then easily view the lists right on their phones, tablets or computers and can choose whether to shop in-store or online at many national retailers. For online shopping, parents simply click on the retail button of their choice. They’re then taken to that retailer’s site where their shopping cart is pre-populated with the exact items requested by the teacher! We really DO do all the work for you! Parents can change quantities, add additional items to their carts or remove items, and quickly check out as they normally would. Items can be shipped directly to their homes and some retailers even offer in-store pickup! If parents prefer to shop in-store, their lists are already on their phones. Gone are the days of loading up the kids and driving to the store, only to realize the school supply list was left on the kitchen counter. Your parents are going to love this (and so will you!).
How do you share your lists with parents?
Letting your parents know when their back-to-school supply lists have been posted is easy with TeacherLists. If you normally post links on your school website, we have some great banners that are already coded to point right to your lists — simply copy and paste the code!
Are there other ways to share lists?
Absolutely! Do you normally communicate with parents on social media? You can share links to your lists on Facebook and Twitter with the click of a button! We’ve even written the message for you (don’t worry, you can change messaging to anything you want). Prefer to email your parents with important updates? We have an email template ready to go! And yes, we have a Print Button for those who can’t tear themselves away from paper just yet.
So stop by booth #616 at the NAESP Conference and pay us a visit! You’ll be able to demo TeacherLists right from one of our iPads. We’ll be happy to answer all of your questions like, “Is TeacherLists REALLY free?” and more! Oh and about those T-shirts we’ll be giving away? Here is a sneak peek. Your principal will love it! There is nothing to purchase so no purchase required — if you want a shirt, you’ll get a shirt (as long as quantities last). See you at the show!
By the way, there’s no need to wait fur July to discover TeacherLists (after all, you are here now). You can upload your supply lists and have them connected to all our national retailers and make them available to parents in minutes! If you’re ready to make back-to-school shopping easier for your parents and staff, let’s get started today!
