Not sure what to say to parents in a letter to send home with the student on the first day of school? Don't have the time to write a letter or not know where to begin? Here is my copy of what I send home with the student on the first day of school.
Page 1 includes the letter to the parents which includes rules/consequences, supplies, and homework policy.
Page 2 includes a questionnaire asking if the parent would like to volunteer and if so the days and hours they are available. It is includes a volunteer check list for more school supplies later on in the year (when needed).
Page 3 includes a detailed letter about the reading log (students read 20 minutes every night and get it signed).
Page 4 includes a weekly reading log template
Page 5 includes a weekly behavior log
