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!
