Dear Amazing Teacher,
Communication with parents of your students is important. Not only is parental/guardian involvement in children’s education associated with increased academic achievement, teachers need to make sure parents/guardians are aware of their children’s progress in class, strengths and needs.
In this download, you will find 3 different versions of a simple half-sheet you can quickly fill out and have students return to you each week with a parent/guardian signature. The forms are in English and Spanish. If you need an additional language, ask your district to translate the form, as it is required by federal law* that they do.
Enjoy the extra support and, of course, the more focused instruction you will be able to offer when you are reflecting on and checking in on each student every week. Use the collected forms to help you at parent teacher conferences and report card time.!
