Positive Parent Contact… Do It Now !

What?! Parent contact...now?! 


You say that you have only had a few days in school…?!

Exactly!

What a better time to contact home!

Choose a couple of your students and call home!

Have some good things to say…Now don’t just choose the kids who do everything right…

Choose kids you may even think may end up struggling…

…find something good to say about the students …

Not something silly like…Joey sure does a good job at sitting in his seat…


Come on you can do better than that…

The point is ..take time over the next couple of weeks to make contact with parents…It will go for miles…

Why? Come on you know why…

Most parents hear nothing from the teachers who teach their kids and those who do hear from the teacher…well…it’s a regular thing primarily ending with a visit to detention or In-School suspension.

It’s time to contact home. 


Win some fans…

Say something nice…over the next few weeks make sure that you have contacted all parents/guardians…(that way if you need a translator or realize that the number is wrong…well you find out now…not when it’s an emergency.) and spread some love…



Say something nice…they now know your voice…and you found time to go out of your way and share some sunshine...cool!


What?! Contact home?! Most definitely!
