This article is in the May edition of the Education Update from the Oregon Department of Education:
Oregon Chosen for Expansion of Early Learning Program
"...Vroom's free, multilingual, and culturally appropriate early learning tools and activities encourage healthy brain development in children ages 0-5 and Oregon was chosen for a pilot project to expand access to these tools.

The national Vroom team (led by the Bezos Family Foundation) has offered our state the unique opportunity to make the Vroom brain-building activities available via text message. The free Daily Vroom app - which contains more than 1,000 brain-building activities - has already been used more than 95,000 times in Oregon. Expanding to text messages furthers the goal of the Early Learning Division (ELD) to promote kindergarten readiness by building crucial abilities such as math, early literacy and important social-emotional skills.

Please help us spread the word about this texting pilot by sharing the Oregon Vroom opt-in page<http://sms.joinvroom.org/oregon> or signing up yourself. You can also text the word 'CHILD' in English or 'HIJO' in Spanish to 48258 to participate..."
