I use this Back to School ESL Newsletter every year. It's a great way to inform the students of my expectations, grading, and class materials they will need for class. I include a student-friendly explanation of each level I teach without going into a deep syllabus or curriculum. My students keep this as the first page in their binders and they can refer to it all year long.
What's great is this product can be tailored for your particular class and/or levels. You can expand the Newsletter each month to include student work and school events and happenings. More advanced students can even do the writing and publishing.
I left my information in the newsletter to serve as a model for you. To edit the info, just back space & make the Newsletter your own.
Have a great year!
