Data Mailing Labels

I was wondering how to efficiently share a host of data points with parents, and then I realized I could simply turn those spread sheets in data mailing labels. Now most of you are probably thinking, "Duh--of course you can do that," but it never occurred to me before. So I surmise my colleagues and I will work a bit on our spread sheets, choose the worthy data, mail merge to create labels and affix the labels to each child's portfolio as a little stats sheet of learning so far. Of course, the data is only one small part of an overall child's portfolio, and that's how we'll deal with it. Mostly we'll focus on students' wonderful showcase portfolios that focus on the whole child in positive ways.
