If you are a teacher of children’s Sunday school, one of your goals is to maintain students attendance. Try the suggestions below to connect with your students parents and enlist their help in bringing their children to Sunday school classes.
Children’s Sunday School Tip – Newsletter to Parents
Once a month, send your students home with a short newsletter explaining the upcoming events in Sunday school and the focus of the lessons. By informing parents of activities and goals, they will be more likely to believe in the power of Sunday school and commit to taking their child each week. This also helps you connect with parents and show that you are interested and involved in their children’s lives. With a connection comes trust, the best mechanism for increasing attendance.
Get parental permission to contact students outside of class time. They will be delighted to get their own telephone calls or emails, and you can keep Sunday school an important part of their lives. Send them special birthday messages or remind them of homework assignments throughout the week. This will help them remember to complete their assignments on time and encourage them to come back to class.
