How I Organize Papers For Students to Take Home

I feel like I am always passing out endless amounts of papers from the office. From parent meetings, to holiday reminders, to fundraisers, they just never seem to end! Last year I implemented a student mailbox system. This literally saved my sanity! Any time I receive notes that go home, I give to my mailbox monitor and that student files each paper in the folders to go home. Each student in my classroom has a classroom number, so I labeled each folder with their same numbers. Students check their mailboxes at the end of the day as we pack up for dismissal. I do inform my students if they do not need to check their mailboxes so we minimize the time it takes to pack up. Click here to grab my owl themed student mailbox sign freebie!
