Setting up a School Twitter

We hit two hundred tweets today, so it’s probably time to evaluate the success of setting up a Twitter account for our school seven months ago.

This was the first official 'School Tweet'.

In seven months we have 131 followers and a small following considering that our social media presence is still in its infancy.

I am hopeful that as of September we will have an updated plan, and will move towards it becoming a more integral communication tools amongst our parents, students staff and the world.

We currently use Twitter often to announce things happening in our school.  Most recently we have been able to post photos and communicate the following:

  • Track & Field Results
  • photos of a school greening initiative
  • photos from a school pow-wow
  • various Eco-Schools Initiatives

Our next steps will include improving our communication to have parents sign up to follow up on twitter, and to continue our positive community presence by tweeting our school successes and important messages regularly.
