What if this year could be different?
No more missed parent-teacher conferences.
No more spending hours on tactics that don’t work or worrying about a student falling behind and not being able to contact the parents.
Sounds like a fantasy? It doesn’t have to be.
This year, our goal is a 100% connected classroom community. No child or family should be left behind. To help you on the quest for reaching every parent, we invited our favourite thought leaders to join #Pledge100 and share their parent engagement tips.
Join the movement and tweet your own tips at @classtagme using #Pledge100. Let’s make 17/18 The Year we reach every family to unleash every child’s unique potential.
