A great way to connect with parents - prepaid postage cards. Take a chance before you spend your money...ask your principal then ask your PTSA or a local business. What principal could say no to a request to stay in touch with parents? A great way to reach out to parents at the beginning of the year. Include information about the beginning of the year that is printed on a sticker and attached to the postcard. Then write a personal note. It will definitely go on the fridge and will establish with the parent that you care.
