If you have been following my blog or instagram, you may have noticed that I share my newsletters each month. These newsletters have been absolute game changers when it comes to parent communication.
I created them because I noticed that parents were NOT reading our school newsletter. When I sat down to look it over closely, I noticed that there was just TOO much information on them and it was formatted in a way that was hard to read. No wonder parents weren’t reading them.
I set out to create newsletters that would be effortless to read and my mission was accomplished! Parents have commented over the years about how much they appreciate knowing what is going on in their child’s classroom.
When I originally designed them, I created with with the intention to copy them in black & white. Over the past few years I’ve started sending my newsletters out via apps such as Remind. It looks like many of you are doing the same because I began receiving requests for color and digital newsletters over the last couple of years.
I found myself with some time on my hands and I dug in to revamp these newsletters. My goodness this ended up being a complete overhaul of the file! It took me weeks to get them done but now that I see them, I know they were worth every minute I invested in perfecting them! Take a peek at how they look in color:
Have you seen anything more beautiful? As I was updating them, I searched and searched for beautiful and diverse clip art to use each and every month! I created various options for each month too! Does your school go all out for holidays? If so, there is a version for you! Want a holiday neutral one? Yep, that’s included! I wanted to make sure you have choices in this pack! I know lots of schools have made their transition over to Google Slides so guess what? I INCLUDED a Google Slides version for you for free! Yep! It’s included in this pack!
I know what you’re thinking. “Can I still print these?” Yes! Absolutely! You can print the PowerPoint versions or Google Slides versions just as before. You now just have a lot more choices. This is what they look like printed in color:
And for those of you who are all about your Astrobrights, don’t worry! I’ve got you too! Black and white versions of every template are included.
A couple of years ago I began blowing these up poster size to display for Meet the Teacher Night and they were such a hit I kept printing them up every single month.
These are perfect for displaying in the hallway! Parents can see them when they drop off or pick up their children. They are great reminders!
Want to learn how to blow these up poster size with your home printer? I created a tutorial just for you! Click on the video below and it will walk you through the steps. PS this tutorial uses my old newsletters but the process is exactly the same.
I forgot to mention two important things. The text is completely editable. You can use some of the headers that I used or none of them. You can customize all the text with the fonts of your choice and edit the wordings for your headings throughout the whole newsletter. While I was working on this massive update, I decided to make a Spanish version which is now included in this set!
