I use this weekly newsletter as a way to communicate with my families. I typically email the form out in PDF form and post it on my website. For the families that don't have access to the internet, I will print out a hard copy.
I use this newsletter to give a very brief update of what we did in each subject for the week. I also give a little blurb about what is to come next week. Completing this weekly is much easier than a monthly newsletter because everything you just taught is fresh in your mind and easy to write out. .
