Our go to way of communicating!

The past three years of using Bloomz has helped simplify and enhance the way we send out information at our preschools! Now not only I as a supervisor can send out notices / emails to parents but so can all of our teachers. I no longer have to wait to send out important information till I get back to my computer. I can just send out an alert, announcement or post straight from my phone. Same for the parents, they get the information faster directly to their phones but still can get it on their computer if that is what they prefer (works on both). Bloomz has been essential in emergency alerts as well. When sadly we had to evacuate we opened up our phones once we were to our safe location and notified our families. We choose at our site not to use the behavior portion of the app (Never tried it. It might be great, we just don’t need it at our school) but we do rely on sharing all our photos on Bloomz to show what we do in the classroom & we also use the calendar + sign ups. Sign ups could be for conferences, volunteers or pot lucks etc. Thank you Bloomz for helping us create a stronger school community with a convenient way of communicating!

Just OK

I’ve been using Bloomz for my son’s class since September 2018. It is my first experience with a classroom app and I have to say that I’m not too impressed. It seems glitchy and not very intuitive. I have badge notifications that seem to take days and days to finally go away after I’ve seen any updates. This alone drives me crazy! When I see a notification badge I end up searching all through the app to find something new, alas it’s all old news. Then magically a day or 3 later the badge will finally disappear. I’m always left wondering if I’ve missed something important from the teacher or another parent.
My other issue is that I get notified for every little “like” and “comment” on a post, yet when someone posts photos, there’s no notification. Nothing. Crickets. I’ve recently just stumbled upon some fun pics of my son from October that I had never seen. I’ve also been the main poster of photos for the class and I am 100% certain that no one has seen them. So now I’m wondering that if I post class photos, do I then have to separately send a class-message informing parents to head to the media section to see pics of their kids? Seems very silly and redundant when it could be a simple badge when anything new in any part of the app has been added. I could go on and on. I do like some features, but it could be a LOT better.

Awesome parent/teacher communication

I stumbled upon this app 4 years ago. Each school year I invite my families to the app before I meet them. Our back to school night is before the start of the school year and by that time families know a lot about me. One feature I absolutely love is the conference scheduling option. I have them scheduled before meeting the families. I post daily and sometime multiple times a day. Parents love having an insight to the classroom. It gives them an opportunity to talk with their child about that activity rather than the child giving very little information about the school day. Being able to direct message with parents is great too! It has also been great for the homeroom parent team and me to communicate about class activities around holiday time. Bloomz is especially beneficial right now with social distancing and our schools being closed for 2 weeks. I can video myself and post it to the class. Parents are saying how much the kids love being able to see me even though we are not in school. I love this app and am so glad to have found it! Give it a try!
