Keeping Records - FREE

We all know how important it is to keep a record of the conversations we have with our parents.  The best way I have found to keep track of all those phone calls, conversations in the lunch room, front office, at parent pick-up...(you get the idea) is to create a parent communication binder.  I put this form on each desk at Open House (which is just before school starts).  Before the parents leave, I ask that they fill out the top portion of the form and leave on the desk.  Once they are all filled out, I place each form in a sheet protector and then put them all in a binder.  I keep the binder right next to my phone.  Every time that I talk to a parent (well, almost every time...) I write down the date, who I spoke to and the gist of the conversation.  I like to keep these forms in sheet protectors because then you can use them like an envelope to put all of the notes that you receive from parents.  Imagine...all that communication in one spot!  Click the picture to download FREE!

Thank you for following my blog! I am now following you as well. Thank you for sharing your communication idea too. I am the world's worst when it comes to writing down every time I communicate with parents. Is there an app for that? I wish!


Love this! I've had a phone log before, but I love the idea of keeping it in a sheet protector with notes and such- we have to file our tardy slips and this would be perfect! Thanks!

Great idea! I love the sheet protector idea. I usually have to go rooting around through the student's folder to find every contact note I have had with the parent! Thanks for sharing!
