I think a newsletter is the key to keeping parents informed about the classroom. I send my letter home on Friday attached to the week's tests and behavior notices. My parents know to expect this information. I always include information about the past week and information for the week ahead. There is also a celebration or good news section. Many parents have appreciated this extra effort.

Teacher's Note: The parents have to sign the bottom portion and add any comments. This comes back to me on Monday. It becomes very routine for the families to do this after about a month of school.
