    Sample Letters to Parents

    Dear Parents:

    I am your childís 5th grade teacher, and I am delighted to have your child in my class this year. I am looking forward to a very successful year and I know you are too. I have high expectations for your child and I will do all that I can to help your child achieve those expectations.

    You can help. I will be expecting all work assigned in class to be completed. Of course, all children do not work at the same pace. Some children will get their work done in class and some will not. Whether or not your child gets his or her work done in class has no effect on their grade. If your child does not complete an assignment in class, he or she will be required to complete it at home. The way you can help is to ask your child every school day if schoolwork needs to be done, and if so, make sure your child completes the assignment.

    In addition, I will be assigning projects in various subjects throughout the school year. Projects are to be completed at home. Your help and support will not only make your child more successful in school this year but will instill good study habits that will last a lifetime.

    Finally, I want you to know that one of my most important goals this year is to keep the lines of communication open with you. I am available every day to talk with you between 8:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. and between 3:30 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Please donít hesitate to contact me at 123-456-7890 ext. 674 or joe.smith@anyschool.k12.wi.us if you have any questions or concerns during the year.

    Sincerely,

    Dear Parents,

    My name is Ms. Jones and your son/daughter is enrolled in my psychology class this semester. I am looking forward to an exciting year. It is my goal to provide all students with an educationally challenging, yet fun, experience in my classroom.

    Psychology is a very demanding course. We will cover 19 chapters in 18 weeks. There will be homework assignments almost daily. Each student will need a single subject notebook, a pocket folder, blue or black pens and pencils. These materials should be brought to class every day. We cover a lot of material in one class period so locker passes will not be issued.

    Hopefully, your son/daughter has brought home their course syllabus and you have both read and signed the syllabus contract. I have written this contract to ensure that both the students and their parents understand how this course will run. If you have any questions regarding the syllabus or the course, please contact me.

    I have extremely high expectations of all my students, and for that I will not apologize. I am asking for your help to maintain those expectations by checking with your son/daughter periodically to make sure that his/her work is being done. I am available to help students individually before school, during my prep periods, and after school. I have included a copy of the course syllabus with this letter. If you would like me to notify you of test dates and/or update you on your son/daughterís progress, please fill out and return the e-mail form included with this letter. Please do not hesitate to contact me at 123-456-7890 x 4303 or jane.jones@anyschooI.k12.wi.us if you have any questions or concerns during the year.

    Thank you,
