If you want to be updated via your Outlook (or other RSS reader), then simply subscribe to the Montessori Way School RSS feed. RSS (most commonly expanded as Really Simple Syndication) is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works—such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video—in a standardized format. What does this mean to you? Well, it means you can easily get updates to the Montessori Way website as they are posted, sent directly to your Outlook email program or other RSS readers. To “subscribe”, simply go to the Montessori Way School homepage and look for the RSS symbol on the right. It looks like this:
If you’re using Internet Explorer: Clicking the RSS logo will bring up a new subscription page. At the top, you’ll see “Subscribe to this feed” button. Simply click it to bring up the subscription window, then hit the “Subscribe” button. This will put the feeds into Internet Explorers “Feeds” folders and will automatically update them. To read them, click on “Favorites”, then “Feeds” in Internet Explorer. You should see a “Montessori Way” folder under “Feeds”.
If you’re using Firefox: Clicking the RSS logo will bring up a new subscription page. At the top, you’ll see “Subscribe to this feed using…”. Simply click the dropdown menu and select the program you wish to use for your RSS reader, and then hit the “Subscribe Now” button. And… oh, wait, that’s it. You’re done. Now you’ll receive updates sent directly to your RSS reader automatically, like emails, when an update is posted.
If you’re on a Mac (using Safari): Clicking the RSS logo will bring up a new subscription page. At the far right, look for the menu labled “Actions”, then “Subscribe to Mail”. Clicking this will allow you to subscribe to the RSS feeds using your email program. The menu looks like this:
Are you on Facebook? If you click the “F” to the right of the RSS logo on the homepage, this will take you to the official Montessori Way School Facebook page where you can “Like” your school and receive updates through your Facebook account. Whichever way you chose, they are all great ways to stay connected to your child’s school.
