By Cieran Douglass in Customer Training | Tagged emails, , , tips
Parents want to know what's happening at your school - what's the best way to tell them?

Luckily, your website lets you manage this in a much easier way. Two ways, in fact! This week we'll be looking at email newsletters, and next week we'll cover news items.
