At our school, the 4th grade team sends home Friday Folders in order to communicate with the parents. The folders contain graded work, newsletters, announcements from the school/teacher, and any other important information. I struggled for awhile to come up with an effective log for the folders, and finally came up with this.
I stapled a sheet protector on the "Return" side of the folder and simply slip this log inside. I write a quick note each week about the student's behavior and allow the parents to write a note as well. Parents sign the log each week and return it with the folder. I change the sheet quarterly.
We have a large Hispanic population at our school, so the log is available in both ENGLISH and SPANISH.
**I use a separate sheet to document missing work and behavior throughout the week. Please check my store for this document.**
