Welcome Back to School newsletter template.

Our Welcome Back To School newsletter template is designed to help principals walk that line.

First, find a placeholder for your opening message, along with an inspirational photo.

Up next: a big pic of the week’s schedule

Because everyone needs to know EXACTLY how much time they’ll have to set up their classrooms, amirite?!

Following the schedule is a gallery to introduce new faculty and staff. Simply switch out the photos and add a quick bio for everyone. Next up is a gallery of facilities upgrades, followed by a button linking to the district website

(So everyone can easily count the days till Winter Break 😆)

Finally, we’ve got resources.

  1. Templates for your teachers, librarian, and guidance counselors to introduce themselves to families.
  2. An incredible collection of links to basically everything a teacher needs to start the year off strong.
  3. A song that’ll inspire even the grumpiest returning faculty member.

Lastly, we’ve woven motivating & inspiring quotations all the way through.

Coming back is never easy, but using this template definitely is. Wishing you a healthy, calm, productive school year.
