I actually do something like this in my k5 class. I almost annoy my parents with how much I let them know about their kids. I make copies of things that require parent's attention, like the writing samples. I send the copy home and keep the original in their file. In time, I send them home for the parents to keep though. My parents love getting even a copy. They understand the importance of keeping up with work.
