Please write your priorities and goals for the year. The times and ways you can be reached and how long it usually will take you to respond. If you have any unusual classroom rules or a special project to anticipate. Your general homework philosophy. Something about yourself and your connection to the subjects you are teaching so parents feel a connection and will remember who is who. A special message to your upcoming student.
The letter doesn’t need to be long or a dvar Torah.
Welcome to כתה __. I hope you and your daughter have enjoyed a wonderful summer. I look forward to having your daughter in my class. With your cooperation, we will make this year an enjoyable, successful and productive one.
It is important for your daughter to have her supplies in school every day. Please make sure her supplies are in school by _________________.
If you would like to speak to me regarding any issues or concerns, please feel free to send a note with your daughter, and I will contact you as soon as possible.
My favorite story on this topic is the teacher who told her class parents " if you agree to disbelieve 50% of what your kid tells you happens in class, I agree to disbelieve 50% of what your kid tells me happens at home!"
