Communication

I've used this form for many years to communicate with my parents. It's just a quick indication to the parents as to how their child is doing in my classroom. I realize that there could be a lot more information included, but quite frankly I don't have time to average their grades every week. I use the "comments" section to either praise, let the parents know areas to work on, or give specific concerns. What I also like about it is that it's "Documentation." One sheet of paper covers a trimester and at the end of the trimester I keep the sheet which has the parent's signatures. The parents of my students really seem to appreciate it.

  3. This is AWESOME! do you have it in a word doc? I'd love to use this as a daily chart, not a weekly. Is there any way you can make a daily one or email me a word doc? nangel1023@yahoo.com

    You're so creative, thanks!
