At the beginning of the school year there are always piles and piles of paperwork to hand out to your students. Half of the time the papers get lost, crumpled, forgotten, or left behind. Why not erase all of that hassle? Invest in bulk flash drives for your primary school systems!
Every teacher will receive one per student. Simply put each child’s name on the outside and start plugging!
It’s a major time saver as well as environment friendly! No more stacks of papers that will get lost or thrown out. Now, you can just save important documents right from your school desktop to their flash drives.
There are always the beginning of the year papers that need a parent’s signature, so the teacher knows that they read the all of the important information.
When the flash drive is sent home, all the parent has to do is read it and write a simple, brief note back saying they understand and agree to what they have read.
It’s also a perfect way for the parent to inform the teacher about concerns they have pertaining to their child, such as, a tough time with a specific subject, food or classroom allergies, or their child may be extremely bashful.
School field trip permission slips can easily be saved to your students’ flash drives as well. Permission slips are, as you know, very important. A child cannot attend unless the school has the parent’s consent. The children’s parents can write a quick “okay” while checking their mail or surfing the web. So, once again save all the hassle of paperwork and do it the easy way.
The teacher can also let the parent know if their child has been acting out lately. If so, a teach-parent conference can be scheduled without ever having to pick up the phone or sending an email! It keeps the lines of communication open and operating smoothly.
It’s even better if the flash drives come with lanyards or hooks, so it’s easier to attach to your students’ backpacks. Then, they’re in the same place on the back of their book bag every day.
Flash drives are a brilliant system of communication, especially when dealing with younger children who can forget things easily because they have a million, different thoughts and stories running through their minds about their day.
However, parents will remember to check the flash drive each and every night because they want to be up to date on their child’s life from a teacher’s point-of-view. It will easily become of a part of your nightly routine; just like making your child’s lunch or asking how their day went.
