Have you thought about doing a parent newsletter?  If you’re interested in learning how to improve teacher-parent communication, a parent newsletter can help facilitate that easily by using today’s technology.

A parent newsletter is a good method for making sure parents know what’s going on in your classroom.  You can offer information about future activities, special events as well provide information to encourage families to be supportive of their children’s education while at home.

What method are you using to communicate with parents?

An effective class newsletter is not only an important tool for keeping parents informed about what’s happening at their child’s school, but it can also help them reinforce academics at home. Whether you’re planning to publish monthly or to take advantage of the immediacy of being able to send to a parent’s email or smartphone, there are several components of your communication plan that will increase the benefits of this dynamic technology.

Keeping parents informed is a yearlong responsibility, but one that has huge potential to make a positive difference in a child’s educational experience. Parents don’t need to be sitting in the classroom to help their child, but they do need to know what you expect from their children. Connecting with them through positive communication helps them reinforce the right academic habits and classroom behavior that will help students succeed.
