Linky Party~~My First One!!!

I am super excited to be participating in my very first Linky Party!!!  I hopped over to Fabulous 4th Grade Froggies and joined the Parent Communication Linky Party.

 I personally feel that parent communication is very important year round.  I am always sending home notes to parents about reminders and upcoming events.  My school requires that we maintain a weekly website.  Click here ( Quia website ) to see my school site.  I post things such as reminders, weekly homework & tests, important dates, and skills for each subject.  I am limited to how the site is set up so I try my best to be creative. This week and next I will not post any skills for individual subjects.  We are taking our state tests this week and next.

In addition to my weekly Quia site, I send home a newsletter.  I include what we are learning, special activities, birthdays, dates, & other information I feel parents would like to know.  Here is a copy of one of the newsletters I already sent home. 

I hope these ideas were helpful to you.  In the future, my plan is to have a blog for my parents so I can post weekly pictures and completed activities for them to view. 

Hop over to Fabulous 4th Grade Froggies and join the Parent Communication Linky Party!
