We have a quick and easy Bright Idea for you this month. For years we received the enrollment forms that parents filled out at enrollment. They had tons of great information, but it was all in different spots on the form and we always had to hunt for phone numbers, parent names, etc. Then our district switched to having student information online. This sounded great to us until we realized that every time we wanted to look up a phone number for a kiddo we would have to log in to the system.
This did not work at all for us when we were trying to make a quick call during our lunch break or to let a kiddo call about a forgotten lunch at the beginning of the day.
So we decided to create our own parent information card! At our Parent Information Night (this is usually within the first 2 weeks of school) we have parents fill out this card.
Then we add a hole punch in the top corner and put them all on a ring. These are hung on our teacher bulletin board right next to the phone and computer. This has made our lives soooooo much easier!
