Parent Communication

http://www.luckylittlelearners.com/2015/05/communication-with-families.html
This month I'm linking up to discuss parent communication. I will say my parents appreciate the systems I've put into place to keep them informed about their child's education.
 
1) Weekly Newsletter- every Monday students take home a newsletter in their folder. As you can see I let parents know what we're learning that week, important dates, notes and homework.  
 
2) Classroom Website- every weekend I update the classroom website with the weekly newsletter above and important dates. I have information about our classroom (wish list, birthdays, classroom management plan), math study guides and links to practice pages, as well as Social Studies and Science study guides and study cards.
 
 
3) Parent Emails- In addition to the hard copy newsletter and classroom website. I occasionally send emails to the parents about items and events I feel need to be communicated directly and then I put it in the newsletter and on the website.
