We're on trimesters and unfortunately we have new groups of students each trimester. I write a short note inviting parents to an open house for my class for 30 minutes in the second week of each trimester. I wish I could say it is a smashing success [in terms of attendance] but those who do come often turn out to be very supportive and provide good connections for me throughout the trimester. Some even become helpful volunteers!
