Life Coach Magazine

For the Love of Formatting

By Kayla @kaymars

tn_newspaper_clipartLast summer, I shared about how I create a newsletter each month for parents and teachers. Since I am always on the lookout for topics and ideas for my own newsletters, I’d thought it might be helpful to share some of mine with you.

My newsletters are only a page on purpose, to make them a quick read for busy parents and teachers. Honest-to-blog, I spend hours on each one because I am a type A, formatting, spelling, and grammar perfectionist. I also enjoy it, so there’s that…

Anyway, feel free to use and share what you find useful. Please just be respectful and give me credit if you use an entire document. Thank you. :)

These are the newsletters I created last school year, plus one I plan to publish in September when I’m back to school. Each one is listed by month and topic. Click on the links to see them.

2013-2014 School Year Newsletters:

September, 2013 Back to school information

October, 2013 Red Ribbon Week information (this was the first year my school celebrated it)

November, 2013 Gratitude

December, 2013 Kindness Matters bulletin board

January, 2014 Bullying and being an up-stander

February, 2014 Self-esteem

March, 2014 Trauma in children

April, 2014 Child Abuse Prevention Month

May, 2014 Career awareness unit

June, 2014 (No newsletter – things got a little busy! You know how that goes, right?)

I spent some time to redo my newsletter layout for next year, since I’ve used the same heading for 3 years now. Gotta keep it fresh!

2014-2015 School Year Newsletters:

September, 2014 Transition tips for parents


Hope you enjoyed my newsletters! If you find it helpful to see these, let me know and I’d be glad to share the ones I create for this upcoming school year! Thanks for reading. :)
