Many preschool and elementary school teachers and leaders have a deep grounding in the social, emotional, and intellectual needs of young children but may wonder how they can support their students’ spiritual development, particularly in a school setting. Similarly, parish clergy and school chaplains may wonder how best to engage preschool or elementary-level students in chapel or in a classroom setting. This webinar will offer an overview of the spiritual lives of young children and how adults can nurture their spiritual growth. Ideal for early childhood and elementary-level school leaders, faculty members, and chaplains.

Maximizing Your School’s Social Media Presence with Limited Resources

Tuesday, April 8, 2014 • 2:00-3:00 p.m. (EDT)

Registration deadline: Monday, April 7, 2014

RenWebToday’s parents and students are connecting and sharing each day via Facebook and other social media channels. Does your school have a presence in social media where you can share information with school families, alumni, donors and friends? Does your school employ inbound marketing techniques that will help you attract prospective families to your school? Or have you found this communication channel to be out of reach because you don’t have the staff to manage it?

This webinar demonstrates how you can manage a robust social media presence with limited resources by smartly combining the power of your school’s website with a school blog, Facebook Page, Twitter account, Instagram and Pinterest.

It will show you through “cross-posting” how to minimize input and maximize output; how to save time by scheduling posts; and how to efficiently monitor comments from parents and students on your social media channels.

Presenter: Jaclyn Day, Communications/Marketing Manager, RenWeb School Management Software
