This product was designed to help teachers get to know new parents and students at the beginning of the school year. Send home before school or during the first week. Have parents fill out and return to school.
Examples of information this form asks for: general contact information, child strengths/challenges, information on allergies, out of school interests.
I have used this for years. As soon as I receive the page (I copy double sided) back from parents, I put it in a binder called "Important Parent Contact Information" and then it is readily available when I need to touch base with a parent.
Important Note: This form is also part of my Important Papers To Start Your Year Off Pack.
Ok to adapt to your needs for single classroom use.
