Thank you again for sharing your ideas. There are some great online platform out there like Remind, Slack, and Class Dojo. Have you thought of using one of those? This could be used by the principal or individual teachers.
Hello Jennifer. I love your idea of having your students write to their parents about their journey through school. Have you thought about sentence starters or prompts for your students to use in their writing? Have you prototype this yet? There is also a huge community online that use journals to communicate their thoughts and feelings either on paper or digitally.
