Connecting with parents

It's always a challenge. How do we effectively communicate important, and sometimes really fun, info with parents? We've tried it all, as I'm sure you have too. Emails, facebook posts, updates on webpages, flyers that you hand out on the weekend, snail mail..... We find flyers in the parking lot, emails go unopened and parents remain uninformed. One thing we have learned is that we must communicate in a whole bunch of different ways, using multiple venues, if we really want to reach…
