A school newsletter needs to be a combination of informative, concise, and entertaining journalism.  After all, what good is a smart, well written newsletter if it ends up in the waste paper bin? This guide from TechHub is full of pointers useful for keeping any classroom newsletter relevant.

What is the most important item to include in your school newsletter?

The most crucial piece you need to put in your school newsletter is your school calendar. This is mandatory for keeping parents in the loop regarding activities and important dates, and for saving instructors the hassle of answering logistical questions like “Is this a three day weekend?”

From that point on, you can gather information to include in the newsletter from school employees, like the nurse giving advice regarding how to keep students germ-free, the music department, art department, and guidance counselors.

In addition you’ll find age-appropriate links that are safe and fun for kids. This will round out your newsletter by integrating technology with the classroom environment.

The school newsletter is really the best way to keep parents informed about activities, events, and dates.  The goal for the school newsletter is to keep parents informed as well as provide parenting tips.
