There are so many things to tell parents on the first day of school and it is so hard to ensure that a note actually goes all the way from class home!! This year I am going to try having students address the envelopes in class and then stuff in the newsletter! I’ll just drop them in the mail!! I hope that this will lead to increased parent enrollment in my Remind app, increased blog traffic to see what’s happening in class, and increased interest in some of our programs! It also gave me a platform to talk about the importance of language study! There are never enough of those!
Feel free to adapt for your own classroom!
