Reaching Out without Burning Out: Making a sustainable plan for positive home communication using Google Voice & Sheets (Live Stream)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session will focus on positive, regular contact with students’ parents, guardians and other grown-ups. We’ll discuss why it’s worth your time and how to actually fit this into your schedule. Come prepared to learn about how Google Voice and Google Sheets can help you create your own system for keeping in touch with families about more than just missing assignments. We will discuss methods of communication, topics for positive messages home, and set some goals for our own sustainable communication plans for the 2021-2022 school year.
