These letters from the teacher are written to send home to students and to parents at the beginning of the school year and at the end of the school year.
This bundled product includes a ZIPPED FILE with two pdf files. Each file contains 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) during back to school time as well as at the end of the school year.
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.
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 in the Back-to-School version and size 13 in the End-of-Year version.
ALL LETTERS ARE ORIGINAL!
I have NOT copied letters that I found online and retyped them. 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 they were created in May/June 2016).
If you have any questions about this bundled 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 each product for your convenience.
Here are the links to each individual file:
