Congratulations! Your ideas are all sound....except for calling the parents. I would not open that can of worms. 18 phone calls....a minimum of 18 parents who want to talk your ear off....who will hold you accountable for everything you said or they think you said.
If these parents want info the way you have heard, you may want to plan a "Meet the Teacher" type open house event that is short (like an hour) to let families come in to meet you and see the classroom, once you have gotten things up and running. It will open you up to parent discussions, but that will also give you insight into the students and a chance to suggest helpful home behaviors like reading every night, etc.
