Communicating with the parents of your students is an essential component in building up the teacher-parent relationship. And a strong partnership will allow you to work together in the education of their children. But communicating with parents can also be a little daunting!

Many teachers utilize a variety of ways to touch base with parents. Here are just a few:
-phone calls
-emails
-parent/teacher conferences
-sending notes home
-social media
-class websites
-school websites
-Google classroom
-information nights
-classroom newsletters
