Get to know more about your new students during the first week of school from those that know them best – their parents!
Whether you attach this to your introduction letter, or just send it home on it’s own, this questionnaire includes a section for parents to provide contact information and preferred contact method.
Sending home a parent questionnaire is a great way to encourage parent involvement right from the start of the year. It also gives you the opportunity to gather information even before Back to School Night or parent/teacher conferences. And instead of trying to remember what parents may have mentioned about their child during casual conversations before school or in passing, you will have the information written down on a form that you can access all year long. Sending home a questionnaire to parents also gives them a chance to put thought into their response or even have a conversation with their child about their interests, etc.
Thanks for looking!
