Communication Journals Coming Home September 28 - Parent Weekend Homework (Every Other Weekend)

Starting on Friday, September 28 your child will be bring home a Communication Journal every other weekend. In this journal they will write you a letter all about their life at school that week. It will be a great opportunity for you to see what school is like from their perspective and for you to see examples of their writing every week! Please take the time over the weekend to read the Communication Journal and write back to your child. Then send the notebook back to school on Monday and we will have time in class to read your letters and write back to you again. I know sometimes weekends are busy. If you are not able to write over the weekend, please keep the notebook at home and try to get it done by Tuesday and return to school no later than Thursday. The weekends that the Communication Journal does not come home, students will be writing to me and I will pick 5 students every week to write back to on a rotation. Consider taking turns rotating between Mom, Dad, older siblings, Grandma, Grandpa, Aunts, Uncles etc. Make it fun and change it up! Ask your children questions, comment on what they wrote or start a conversation that you think will interest them.
