This is a letter template that you can send home with your new incoming students either prior to them even stepping foot into their new classroom OR on the first day of school. I send it home with my welcome letter/postcard to my students just before school starts. This letter template is a great way to have parents express their worries, concerns, celebrations, etc. personally with you without taking up all of your time on those first few days. It's also great information to hold onto for future meetings.
