Quick Tip - Parent Newsletter

Thanks to the awesome Carrie Toth and this post on sending home a newsletter, I created my own newsletter today (borrowing heavily from her first edition). In the past I had a boring word document parent contract for them to read and sign. This way the contract part is still integrated, as well as a permission form for watching movies and El Internado from Kristy Placido. Using a Pages layout it is more reader friendly and integrates some learning for the parents as well. I plan on emailing it to the parents, as well as sending home a paper copy with the students. My hope for future editions is to have the students write articles or come up with content. 


Update: An updated editable newsletter template in Pages and PDF can be downloaded here.
Happy Planning!

  24. This is a great idea! How often do you send a newsletter home? I know that this post was created a couple years ago, are you still doing the newsletter? has it evolved in the last couple of years? Thanks for sharing!
