Newsletters are an excellent one-way communication tool from school to home. It helps the parents stay informed and connected.

For this assignment you will submit two separate newsletters; however only one is being done at this time. Each newsletter is worth 12 points and both must be for parents of preschoolers. Guidelines for the second newsletter will be provided when the assignment is posted.

The first newsletter will be for one month; it will be the ______ (month newsletter is due) newsletter for your preschool class.

The newsletter should be anti-bias, developmentally appropriate and for a state funded preschool. Do not write a newsletter for a private school.

Each newsletter should be only 2 pages.

You will upload the newsletter, identify it has Newsletter 1.

Your newsletters should include the sections below, listed beneath each section I have included areas that can be covered for that section title. This should assist you with knowing what to write for the section.
