We are pleased to announce Teach Preschool’s fourth annual fall postcard exchange. Over the last four years, Deborah has learned many things about organizing a postcard exchange. Each year, she tweaks the format just a little to make it run a little more smoothly. Last year, I had the pleasure of helping her organize the exchange and I can honestly say it is a WHOLE LOTTA work! But I think we may have finally figured out the secret to making the postcard exchange much more manageable for us, while also allowing our participants a bit more ownership.
This year, we will be using a new private Facebook group exclusively for all communication and address exchanges. You must be a member of this Facebook group to participate in this year’s postcard exchange. You will be asked to enter your email below so that we may send you an invitation to join the 2013 Teach Preschool Postcard Exchange group. All communication after that will be through the group, rather than by email.
2013 Teach Preschool Postcard Exchange
The following are the details for the 2013 Teach Preschool Postcard Exchange…

UPDATE: If you have returned to this blog post because you have not yet received an email invitation to join the Facebook group, then you may need to re-enter your email address and Facebook user name. I noticed several incomplete email address and had a few get bumped back to me. I’ve also had one or two school district emails get bumped back, possibly because of spam filters. You can always contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to try to resolve these issues.
The deadline to submit your email for the 2013 Teach Preschool Postcard Exchange is Sunday, September 8, 2013! You will have until Friday, September 13th to join the Facebook group. No new members will be accepted after September 13th.
