One way that I communicate with parents is through email. Each week, I try to send an email to a parent with something positive their student has done. Think about it and ask yourself – What is the main reason teachers call home or write home to a parent? Usually Johnny is in trouble! What if you were contacted by a teacher for the simple fact that you wanted to say something positive? From the art teacher, no less? This makes a huge impact.
1. Communicates something POSITIVE
2. Builds relationships
3. Makes both parties feel pretty great!
Think about it, what have you done, or do you want to do, to improve the following three points above? Please share! Positivity is contagious.
