You are a  first-year teacher in a preschool that aims to strengthen parent–teacher  relationships. Drawing on your student teaching experience, you realize  the importance of involving families in the daily lives of their  children before the school year even begins. You also realize the  importance of letting parents know that they have a place in your  classroom. You watch the video What Parents Want to Know About Their  Children and are inspired to create an informational pamphlet to give to  families two weeks before the school year begins. You begin with an  overview of what parents can expect at parent–teacher conferences. You  also want to outline classroom routines for them, particularly those  involving children’s individual home–school folders, which are an  integral part of your communication strategy. Last, in the interest of  welcoming parents to interact with their children, as well as other  children and parents in your classroom, you include an invitation to  several fall events.

Be sure to present all information in a  warm, supportive manner that will help parents understand your goal of  creating partnerships with them.
