    The Mt. Tabor Principal’s Newsletter is sent out using School Messenger. PPS has moved to a single communication tool called School Messenger, and will no longer use Celly, Flash Alerts, and Synrevoice. Now principals can send email, SMS text messages, and autodialers from School Messenger. You can get more information here:
