One piece of advice that veteran teachers gave me when I began teaching was to document everything. Having so many students each year, it is difficult to keep track of which parents you spoke to, and which students served detentions, etc. In previous years, I have used a really cute Nautical Parent Communication Log form that I found on TPT, but found that it did not cater to the art classroom, as it was designed for each student to have their own page. With around 500 students, this would take up a lot of paper. I created my own less decorative communication log that you can find on my Teachers Pay Teachers page here. I plan to print one page out for each class, and place it in their section in my attendance binder. When the page gets filled (which it hopefully will not), I just add another to their class section.
