Communicating with Parents in Classroom

899186_orig

Teachers – Now more than ever there is an expectation to communicate with not only our students but their parents in a timely and detailed manner. Communicating with the  parents and guardians of your students just got easier with Google Classroom’s Guardian Email Summaries.  Don Sutton just turned on our access to this important feature so you can now  use it.

Simply go to the ‘students’ tab in Classroom and then turn on Guardian Email Summaries on the left-hand side.  You will then “Invite Guardians” by adding the email addresses or adding from your contacts.  Parents/guardians will have the option to see a daily or weekly summary of posts from your classroom.  This will also allow you to email the guardian directly from Google Classroom.

Try it out tonight as you meet with parents at Report Card Fair.  As always give us feedback so we know if this becomes an effective way of communicating with your parents.
