I'm Going Green!

I know other people probably send their newsletter home electronically, my daughter's kindergarten teacher even did, but I never got around to it.  Last year, we started hearing that our paper supply was going to be limited.  I still wanted to encourage the home school connection, but I didn't want to have to print it out every week.  Every parent signed up for the weekly newsletter using this form.

After the first week, I realized there were so many more benefits than just saving paper!  I was able to make the newsletter cutesy and in color!  I saved the newsletter as a PDF so anyone could open it, and just attached it to the email.  Also it was a great time saver- I didn't have to stand in the line at the copier on Friday morning, and I didn't have to put it in their folders either!  I tried to have the newsletter out on Thursday night, but if I didn't I could send it Friday night or Saturday morning, and it wasn't a big deal!

This is a great idea. Do you have a class website? If not, look into Shutterfly. I have one and I am ablem to post pictures, download homework, newsletters, snack calendars,etc. and it is free.
