“When everyone is on Mobile all the time, your school should be too!”

The Epstein School, a leader in technology education, is proud to announce that it has developed its very own mobile app, as part of a plan to expand and enhance its communications with parents and the community. Mobile phones are everywhere; with the number of mobile phones out numbering the population, The Epstein School recognizes the importance of mobile devices to increase communication with our parents, prospective parents, alumni, staff and grandparents. The school, strongly believes in the involvement of parents and the community in children’s education. We know that involved communities result in higher academic outcomes, stronger values, and increased success in life.

The school also recognizes that parents are very busy and it’s not always easy for parents to stay involved as they would like to be. That’s why, under the leadership of Coleen Lou (Director of Communications) and Anthony Shields (Director of Information Systems), The Epstein School teamed up with Crescerance, a leading mobile solutions provider for schools, to create a cutting edge technology solution designed to make our parents’ lives a little easier. Last week, when Epstein parent and technology educator, Helene Marcus got a sneak preview of the app she stated, “Oh my gosh…this is so cool! Everything you need is right here in one place and convenient. I love the fact that the Backpack and school photos are right at your fingertips.” Epstein parent, Debbie Sasson stated, “This is very exciting! I like that you can easily share school pictures and show off the school. Wow…you can also access the PTO school store, lunch menu, school newsletters and even donate. This is amazing!”

Now, the power for parents to stay connected is in the palm of their hands with Epstein’s latest technology, the Epstein App!
