Schools Connecting Through Social Media
In the “information age,” social media outlets have become a favorite way to share pictures and news. For organizations, social media tools can also give a glimpse of culture and personality; that is, a quick look at a Facebook page can provide a sense of what it’s like to be “part” of that organization. Our Mid-South District Lutheran Schools have certainly caught on to this notion and they are making the most of the opportunities that social media provides.
Facebook is the tool of choice for our Lutheran schools. Nearly all of our elementary schools in the Mid-South District have a presence on Facebook – and they do an amazing job of keeping those pages updated with current information and wonderful pictures. November and December were especially busy months, with numerous posts from Thanksgiving and Christmas programs and student outreach projects. Parents love to “like” and share these pictures with friends and family, giving others a look at the vibrant life of their child’s Lutheran school. In the Mid-South District, Lutheran elementary school Facebook pages have a combined 6,286 “likes” – that’s an impressive number of connections being made!
Hats off to our Lutheran Schools and Early Childhood Centers on their outstanding social media efforts. Together, they provide an exciting and inspiring look at Lutheran education in the Mid-South District.
