This is my 23rd year teaching in the WRPS district. I currently teach 7th grade Social Studies on Team 7A.
The best means of communication between parent and teacher is the classroom Google calendar and EMAIL. On a daily basis, students should be recording assignments for all of their classes in their paper Agenda Planner.
For daily lesson details view the "Daily Class Info & CNN Log"
presentation in the Sanger Class Folder (click on it).
I also use WRPS/Skyward email (email@example.com) and Remind texting (text @sanger7 to 81010) as the main methods of communication to students and parents.
