Keep Parents Informed Through Symbaloo – Sylvia Buller

Communication between parents and teachers is essential. It is a year – long commitment. Keeping communication easily accessible and current is the key for helping busy parents to easily stay informed with what is happening in their child’s classroom and school.

When you think of how much information is sent home during a school year, either on paper or electronically, it is easy to understand how some information can be lost or misplaced. There are policies, newsletters, menus, announcements, assignments, procedures, and calendar dates just to name a few. This can be overwhelming for parents to keep it all close at hand.
