Extra! Extra! They DON'T Read All About It---Using Tech, Not Newsletters, to Highlight Your Amazing Classroom!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Friday newsletters are a work of art and HEART--so it's really too bad that so many of our families are guilty of not reading them, at least not REALLY reading them in the way that we wish they would and getting the dates and info they need! In this day of fast-paced communication, abbreviated text messages, and after-school schedules full of tennis, karate, music, and much more, find ways to get needed information and just plain fun communication to your parents to keep them involved, informed, and LOVING what comes from your classroom! Come learn ways to grab, keep, and stimulate their attention and their support with just a few minutes of time....the same minutes you probably spend on that well-crafted Friday newsletter.
