Classroom Management Tip

Don't just call home with negative reports concerning a student, make positive calls as well. This fall I entered my students in 3 contests. I called home for every student I wanted to enter (which was literally about 65 phone calls). In doing so the parents became excited about the art program at our school. I began meeting many of the parents, as they would stop by to say hi and check on their child. I also had some extra supplies trickle in. So it was definitely worth it and any opportunity you have to call home about something positive-do it!
