We are excited to announce our school app!
Fort Caspar Academy has chosen Bloomz as our school community app. Bloomz will help us improve communication.
FCA has a school account which will be used to send out information, notify members of events, and facilitate communication among classes, groups (such as clubs and organizations) and send out important announcements and alerts.
Several classrooms will also be using Bloomz for classroom-level communications and activities.
Do I have to sign up for Bloomz?
No. The use of this communication tool is completely optional. You may make a special request for paper notes to be sent home and important announcements and alerts will still be sent out by email as before.
Do I need a Smart Phone to use Bloomz?
No. Bloomz is available as a desktop app on your computer also. If you sign up with your cell phone number or email, you can receive notices by text message or email even if you do not have the mobile app installed on your phone.
Why did FCA choose Bloomz?
We considered several apps, including Remind, Class Messenger and Class Dojo. After careful consideration, we chose Bloomz for many reasons. It is uniquely supportive of elementary classrooms. It’s basic (free) feature meet our goals of offering school-level communications with connection to classroom and extra-curricular groups as well. We found it to be feature – rich and easy to use. Please let us know if you have questions or feedback.
