A new school year already! This can bring feelings of excitement as well as anxiety. One thing you can to do prepare for the new school year is to begin communicating with your child’s teacher. Who else knows him or her like you do? Communication is a critical piece in your partnership with your child’s school. We recommend writing an e-mail or a letter to your child’s new teacher telling them all about your child. We previously wrote a post about this but feel it’s important to share again. You can find the past post here Communicating with Your Child’s Teacher which also includes a link for a template on how to write a letter and communicate.
As the year progresses, keep that communication line open. Here is a link to the Wrightslaw website on how to write an effective letter to your child’s school pertaining to any EC needs or concerns http://www.wrightslaw.com/advoc/articles/letters.draft.htm
If you would like help on how to begin or tools for communicating with your child’s school, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cheers to the start of a fantastic year!
