I love the idea of having your back to school information pre-recorded. I think that many parents would appriciate it. Thanks for sharing those ideas.
Nice work

These are great suggestions!

This appears to be appropriate for college level students, but a very overwhelming approach for a student taking traditional high school as well as the student's parents.

Great Information!
Communication that is meaningful for parents that are not comfortable sharing at orientation night is good to have your Engage Your Audience with Today's Meet. Your parent group idea to blast out a text is a nice idea for one way flow. Quick and easy is great. Google + Community seems like the workload is on the teacher. We use an assignment notebook.

This is great. My school doesn't have an open house so I think this will be helpful in letting parents get to know me and my teaching style. Thanks so much!
