Dear XXX,

Writable is a school/district purchased platform designed to help you take writing to the next level. Writable was purchased so that we could [insert goal here]. In reviewing the data from the Writable platform, I can see that you were able to create an account in Writable but have not selected an assignment that can be used in your classroom. Writable has several assignments that can be used in your classroom. Here is a link, How to Browse and Choose Assignments, to help you navigate the platform.
