Parent Contact Digital Log

In the past, I’ve struggled with keeping documentation of all the parents I contact throughout the year. I starting using Google Forms this year as a way to keep track. It is effortless and efficient! Enjoy creating your very own digital log with the following easy steps. Happy Tinkering!

What you need:

  • Create a folder labeled Parent Contact Log 2019-2020
  • Google Forms with the same name above
  • Parent Contact Information w/Google Sheets (OPTIONAL: I just don’t like clicking individually on each student name to get their parent contact information).

Step 1 Open your Google Forms

Fill it out w/ all the categories below.



Contact Type

Note: Use the checkboxes option, so that you can choose as many as apply.

Step 2 Start Contacting Parents

Click on the top right hand corner on the preview symbol (looks like an eye). I fill everything out before I make the call except for the notes section. After your attempt or success at reaching parents, I fill out the notes section. Click on the Google Sheets symbol on the top right hand corner to get a spreadsheet with a list of all the parent contacts you have made thus far. I make one per semester, so I don’t have a huge list.

I'm an experienced high school English teacher sharing best practices to inform, to inspire and to reflect on my own craft. Love implementing new ideas and efficient systems that make teaching manageable. Teachers need a surmountable amount of support to help them survive, and every year comes with its own challenges. When I am not teaching or creating, I love hiking, running, anything outdoorsy! I am also a mother of two boys, one in college the other in his last year of middle school. Hope you can utilize what I create and share on this platform.
