Welcome letters are a wonderful and common practice in elementary school classrooms, yet are rarely seen in secondary classroom. I believe that welcome letters are equally, if not more, necessary for secondary classrooms. My welcome letter provides me the opportunity to introduce my classroom and myself to parents, since their child may not relay the message.
Welcome letters are also a great opportunity to establish communication with parents. Parents often tell me that they felt comfortable approaching me because of my letter. Other parents reach out just to say that they appreciated the note and being kept in the loop. We often think that our want for all of our students to succeed is implied, but saying it explicitly goes a long way with parents!
Note: This welcome letter mentions mathematics specifically, but can easily be edited for any content subject.
