Advances in Parent Newsletters

This year, we’re going to use tinyletter.com to handle our parent newsletter duties.  I tend to send a newsletter out once a month, or so.  It’s really just a way to let parents know what’s going on in class.

The newsletter will discuss events in AP Biology as well as Honors Chemistry.
