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:
There are two different notes included in this file: one is for no tables/desks and one is for flexible seating!
