A Quick and Easy Way to Communicate With Parents

Communicating with the parents in your classroom is one of the most important things for a teacher to do!

Building trust with the families in your class doesn’t have to be time-consuming and arduous. Yet, many teachers find it difficult to find the time to write notes home, call parents, or communicate with families on top of everything else in their busy schedules.

It doesn’t have to be stressful! In fact, there is a simple thing that you can do to communicate with the parents in your classroom every day – sticky notes!

Sticky notes are a great way to communicate with parents.

Whenever your student completes a piece of work that you think they should show off, simply write a quick comment of praise on a sticky note, attach it to the work and pop it in the student’s bag to send home! If you’re wanting to keep their piece of work for their student portfolio, make sure to include a note to return it back to school.

Here are some other great ideas for communicating with your class’s parents:

  • Write a postcard home to each child once a term. This will stick in families thoughts much longer than an email or a note in the diary.
  • Take a photo of a student proudly displaying their work and quickly email it to their family.
  • Put a sticker in a student’s diary asking the parents to pop in for a chat.
  • Set aside 20 minutes once a week and give two or three parents a call to let them know how their son or daughter has gone this year.

Don’t forget – the kids who fly under the radar are the most important! Their parents probably don’t hear from you as much as the others, but they matter too!


  • Totally agree, its help kids to communicate parents very easily.

  • My students’ parents and I have a group chat and we often talk about issues that interest us. It’s also a great idea to take photos and send them to parents. I do this sometimes for each child while doing some interesting task or during the games.
    Sticky notes seem me an interesting solution for discreet communication. I think that I will also try to bring this into our learning process.
