    NOTE: IF YOU TEACH MORE THAN ONE GRADE LEVEL, DO NOT PURCHASE THIS BUNDLE FOR MULTIPLE GRADE LEVELS BECAUSE THE LETTERS FOR BACK-TO-SCHOOL AND THE LAST WEEK OF SCHOOL ARE THE SAME! Please message me if you are interested in more than one grade level and I'm happy to create a custom bundle for you.

    BACK-TO-SCHOOL LETTERS FROM THE TEACHER:

    • This back to school product includes a letter that teachers can send home to parents as well as a letter that teachers can send home with students (each letter contains a different message).
    • The letter to parents comes with a boy or girl version (the pronouns are changed throughout the letter to reflect a male student or a female student). This letter has three color background options as well the corresponding backgrounds and clip art in black and white. Including all versions of the parent letter (gender, color, black and white), there are 12 pages.
    • The letter to students comes with three color background options as well as the corresponding backgrounds and clip art in black and white. Including all versions of this letter, there are 6 pages. Note: This letter does not require a boy/girl option since the teacher is using the pronouns "you" and "I" throughout the letter.
    • THE BODY OF THIS LETTER IS NOT EDITABLE! All versions of each letter have editable text boxes in the Greeting Field and the Signature Field. You can edit these two places on each letter if you choose. If you'd like to print the letters as is, you may write in the student's name and your own signature. Just for reference, the font is Miss Kindergarten by Kimberly Geswein and the size is 14.
    • BOTH LETTERS ARE ORIGINAL! I have NOT copied a letter that I found online and retyped it. This is important because you may want to mix things up and send a new letter home this year.... none of your parents will have seen this one (at least in 2016, as it was created in June 2016).

    END-OF-YEAR LETTERS FROM THE TEACHER:

    • These editable end of year letters to students and parents include an encouraging letter that teachers can send home to parents as well as a letter that teachers can send home with students (each letter contains a different message and is ORIGINAL).
    • The letter to parents comes with a boy or girl version (the pronouns are changed throughout the letter to reflect a male student or a female student). This letter has three color background options as well the corresponding backgrounds and clip art in black and white. Including all versions of the parent letter (gender, color, black and white), there are 12 pages.
    • The letter to students comes with three color background options as well as the corresponding backgrounds and clip art in black and white. Including all versions of this letter, there are 6 pages. Note: This letter does not require a boy/girl option since the teacher is using the pronouns "you" and "I" throughout the letter.
    • THE BODY OF THIS LETTER IS NOT EDITABLE! All versions of each letter have editable text boxes in the Greeting Field and the Signature Field. You can edit these two places on each letter if you choose. If you'd like to print the letters as is, you may write in the student's name and your own signature. Just for reference, the font is Miss Kindergarten by Kimberly Geswein and the size is 13.
    • BOTH LETTERS ARE ORIGINAL! I did NOT copy a letter that I found online and retype it. This is important because you may want to mix things up and send a new letter home this year.... none of your parents will have seen this one (at least in 2016, as it was created in May 2016).
    • If you have any questions about this product, please ask prior to purchasing. If you aren't sure how to edit text boxes, I've included a page of instructions at the beginning of the product for your convenience.

    If you have any questions, please ask me prior to purchasing!

    AND AGAIN IN CASE YOU MISSED IT... IF YOU TEACH MORE THAN ONE GRADE LEVEL, DO NOT PURCHASE THIS BUNDLE FOR MULTIPLE GRADE LEVELS BECAUSE THE LETTERS FOR BACK-TO-SCHOOL AND THE LAST WEEK OF SCHOOL ARE THE SAME! Please message me if you are interested in more than one grade level and I'm happy to create a custom bundle for you.
