You could make a "Welcome" letter to the parents and introduce yourself. I like when teacher's do that. Make a supply list too. I hate not knowing what to get for school supplies. Every teacher is different.

I would make a simple syllabus, for the parents. I LOVED it when my children's teachers let me know what kind of things they would need that month for a project. It drove me nuts when my children would tell me they needed blue poster board for class in the morning at 10 pm the night before. My dd taught school, kindergarten. She said she hated to think she was using these children as her own guinea pigs. Most of the first year teachers feel this way. Get to know your students and their parents, that will help you teach better. Good luck, keep us posted.
