Letter to the Parents

Dear Parents,


I am very pleased to see you all at the Parents-Teachers conference last week. I am very fortunate for all of the cooperation and support you have provided in ensuring that your child has the best learning experience possible.

As I have mentioned during the conference, starting next Tuesday, October 1, 2013, my class will be working on Fairy Tale themed lessons, This includes that your child will be learning different types of fairy tale stories every day until the end of the month. For this month, homework assignments are almost daily but are not due until the end of the week. I am asking for your help to work with your children during the week to make sure assignments are being done. I will provide weekly schedule for your child to take home so you have some ideas on what we are learning in class for the week. I believe that a good parent-teacher relationship is necessary for your child's success in school. If you have any questions or concern, my contact information can be found below this newsletter.


Sincerely,

Ms. Ramirez
