This product contains 4 folder cover sheets (1 for each quarter, 9 weeks per quarter) that can be used to communicate with parents on a weekly basis. The teacher fills out all of the information for the week (i.e. grades, homework completion, any behavioral and/or academic concerns, or school reminders), places any graded papers inside the folder, and sends it home on Fridays. The parent then signs the folder, takes out the graded papers, and sends it back on Mondays. It's the perfect way to keep your students' parents up-to-date with how their child is doing in your class. The file is editable, so if you have more or less than 9 weeks of school per quarter, you can adjust it as necessary. You can also type in the dates and reminders so you don't have to write them in for every student. This is perfect for middle school teachers or upper elementary teachers that departmentalize.
