Apparently, there’s this thing in politics and government and business called a document dump. And you use it when you want to put a bunch of information out without drawing attention! So, by popular demand, I’m doing a back-to-school documents dump! I get lots of requests for my notes and letters that I send home so I wanted to share those with you!
These documents used to go home on Meet The Teacher Night or on the first day of school. In 2020, when we learned we were starting the year virtually, I wanted to connect with my students and families immediately because of the challenges I knew were coming. I decided to mail a welcome packet, including photographs, so they had as much information, and a way to contact me, as soon as possible. This really made an impact because we had formed relationships before the year started! The photographs were included because I wanted the kids to know my face before we had to pop on a screen together. I included a photograph of my family so they could get to know all of me! Now, this packet is mailed home each summer before school starts.
These are PDF files and are not editable. They are only being offered as a guide or resource.
The following documents go in the welcome packet:
No Tables No Desks/Flexible Seating Letter
There are two different notes included in this file: one is for no tables/desks and one is for flexible seating!
Kindergarten Information Sheet
Family Welcome And Information Letter
Shoe Tying Note
Video/Social Media/Photo Release
Slippers In The Classroom Note
The following documents are sent home as these activities are introduced!

II have a parent asking for the research on the no tables and desks in the classrooms. I’m having a hard time finding the proper information besides your blog. can you point me in the correct direction
The blog has links to multiple resources. Here is a link to the research blog post: https://thekindergartensmorgasboard.com/2018/09/flexible-seating-research.html
Would love to have these notes home in Spanish!
You can use mine as templates and type your own in Spanish if you’d like!
