Teaching Tip: Class Newsletter


A class newsletter is an informal way to communicate with parents. Here are some of the many things you can include in a newsletter.
  • Announcement of upcoming events.
  • Items parents should have at home for class projects.
  • Explanation of your classroom rules.
  • Explanation of your grading policies.
  • Various kinds of reminders.
  • Samples of students' writing and artwork.
  • Description of community resources that can supplement what you are teaching such as a museum exhibit.
Keep the length of your newsletter to one sheet front and back. Sending home a biweekly newsletter will keep it current. Finally, and most important, proofread your newsletter carefully.
