Are you using a texting service to connect with teenagers?

The one thing that I have done right in the past few years is setting up a texting service.  The best part about having a proper texting service to communicate with parents and students is that all the messages are received.  It is unbelievable.  I remember looking at the stats after the first text I sent out, and sat back  and was amazed at the number that popped onto the screen.  It said that 100% of the messages were received.
