Consider including the following information in your parent newsletter.
  • Announcements of upcoming events in class and school-wide.
  • Blurbs about what students are studying in class (one or two subjects per week).

  • Occasional reminders about book club orders.
  • Reminders about signing up for volunteering or parent conferences.
