Through a partnership between the Tennessee Department of Education and the Governor’s Early Literacy Foundation (GELF), CMCSS is excited to offer our pre-K through third-grade 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. Here is how Ready4K can help you 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.

Ready4K will begin sending texts the week of January 25, 2021. You can choose to stop receiving Ready4K texts at any time by texting STOP to 70138.
