If you haven’t already, now is probably the time to begin collecting your “Summer Roll” – the contact information of plugged-in students who will leave for the summer.
I recognize you probably have emails, cell phone numbers, and Facebook pages to work with (isn’t communication more transportable these days?!). But what about a mailing address – especially for those students who are working at camp, studying abroad, or otherwise away from home? And do you know exactly whom this list of out-of-town students includes?
Just as you collected info on students at the first of the year so you could contact and shepherd them, you can collect info on students now… because shepherding doesn’t end May 10th (or whenever your last day of classes happens to be).
