Ready4K - Text Messages to Boost Your Child's Learning

Through a special partnership between the Tennessee Department of Education and the Governor’s Early Literacy Foundation (GELF), starting in January, our district is excited to offer our pre-K through 3 families free access to Ready4K, a research-based text messaging program, that will help you continue your child’s learning at home.

Families are juggling a lot right now, and on top of that, you are working hard to help your children keep learning despite an unprecedented year. We are excited about Ready4K because it provides a unique and simple opportunity for you to help support your child’s learning:

  • Delivers three texts weekly with fun facts and tips to provide you with simple, engaging tips to help your child continue to learn while at home.
  • The messages match each child’s age, even if you have more than one child.
  • Ready4K tips build on your daily routines, like getting dressed, bath time or preparing a meal.

We want to help bridge the gap between the classroom and the home and help ensure your child is learning no matter where they are.
