Sharing information with parents and students is vital to maintaining good classroom communication. A regular, weekly or monthly classroom newsletter is a great way to disperse important news about learning, special events and activities. Consider including announcements of upcoming events such as class activities or an open house, reprints of informational articles, and reminders of class projects and special needs.
A good newsletter design layout will encourage your audience to read the content and help them navigate the information more easily. Whether you create a simple one-page newsletter or a more complex multi-page newsletter, remember to use white space and headings to draw attention to the articles. To make the newsletter more visually appealing, add a few interesting photos or clip art to the layout.
