SMOREs (the calorie free kind) are easy to use and I have often used them in place of a parent newsletter. It does take time to put these together but it certainly saves on paper and you can post a link to Facebook and Twitter. At the beginning of the year request parent emails and then you can send them the direct link to your SMORE. I believe this application would be one to consider teaching to students so they can create informational posters complete with hyperlinks to various online resources. This option will bring the poster alive!
