I use the want ads from newspapers and cover the bulletin board (which happens to be on the door, which is great!) and use a plain black border. In big black letters I put: "WANTED 4TH GRADERS" and then below I put a job description: Must be fun, be willing to learn, like to learn, work well with others, and be looking forward to a great year. (This can be changed for each teacher.) The description is smaller than the HELP WANTED part. Then I put 2 folders: 1) an application for instruction folder and a paper that the students fill out to tell me all about themselves and 2) the Parental Application... This is filled out by the parents and it has contact info and other thigns we need. At my school, we have a "first day of school" that is 2 weeks before school starts and the parents and students come together to meet their teacher, bring their supplies and see their classroom. This board works great for this! Hope this helps!
