I cannot believe that it is already time to prep for the new year again!
It’s to set up our classrooms and get everything ready for the new students and parents who are new to the school routine and how we each organize our own classroom.
Let’s be real. Communication with parents needs to happen ALL. THE. TIME. in Kindergarten and primary grades!
As a result, one of the very first things I tackle each year is my communication mailbags. Students send them home nightly with any mail that needs to go home and return them the next day. I’ll be honest, I like a uniform look so I make the bags up myself and it allows parents to read our expectations instantly, as a reminder, if required.
I always ensure that students names are on the bag so that they are easy to identify if they get lost.
Parents appreciate that they know I’ve got everything ready for them and I love the organized look!
Ensure you have these ready for your first parent meeting so you can go over expectations in person. Parents truly appreciate this personalized communication.
Happy back to school!
