Classroom Management

Ooops! Note: Behavior Letter Download

As many of you know, I use a letter to send home with students when they have gotten to the end of my management plan, and I find it’s time to communicate with parents. If you click on the image below you can download the entire sheet (4 on a page) to use for yourself.


My copy has my contact info, but I made a general version for all of you. You could just sign your name at the bottom above where the parent signs. I hope this will provide you with the tools you need to let parents know what is happening in the art room. Sometimes taking the communication one step further can make for big changes in student behaviors. I also recommend printing this on colored paper, so it stands out in the student’s folder/backpack. Good Luck!
