Hi everyone, My mind is spinning with all these ideas that I want to put into place this coming school year and one of those ideas is keeping contact with parents more. I was thinking of doing a newsletter type form of communication but I am not sure how frequently I should send it home. Does anyone else here send home class newsletters? If so, how often do you send it home? How long does it take you to publish a newsletter? And, what types of information do you include in it? I was thinking of mentioning the first names of the star students, important dates, and a brief description of what we are learning. I have a Mac laptop computer and I was thinking of getting iWorks '09 because I think they have newsletter templates, does anyone use this program? Thank you so much and I hope you are all enjoying your summer!
