Do you write one for your parents or students? If so, how often do you do one?

We have to send one home every week. It has the subject objectives, word of the week, quote of the week, behavior expectation of the week, spelling words, student of the month and other special notes and upcoming dates. The school menu goes on the back.

We are supposed to send one home weekly. I put what we are working on, the student of the week and their picture, our "word of the week", the word wall words we are working on, reminders, etc. I don't think as many parents read it as they should...

Exactly Lisa!! I had a parent come to a conference last week telling me she hadn't seen one in a long time. Good grief! They go home every Monday. I even put them in the mailbox myself. I know my kids would love to help do it but I want to make sure no one is missed.

Ugh, it's annoying!! I spend a decent amount of time on it...and then parents will ask questions or say something like "I didn't know you had a field trip coming up" and I tell them it's been in the newsletter for weeks!

On a side note...I wonder if I should send them home on Monday (or a different day of the week). Ours go home on Fridays and I thought maybe parents just don't do the normal routine of checking backpacks/planners on Fri. night and that's why they don't read it. (Although you still have issues on Monday...so I don't know!)
