Included in this document is a parent letter to be used at the beginning of the school year. The letter includes information about ATTENDANCE, CHECKING STUDENTS OUT EARLY, HOMEWORK, SPECIAL AREAS, BEHAVIOR/DISCIPLINE, BIRTHDAYS, AGENDAS/BACKPACKS, WORK STATIONS, CLASS STORE, VOLUNTEERS, TRANSPORTATION, SUPPLIES, BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT, AND A PARENT QUIZ! The letter will certainly have to be edited to include your own classroom information, but its a nice place to start or gather ideas for sure. I also send out a quiz along with the letter that parents are expected to fill out. This assures me that they have read the letter and paid attention to some important points.
