I also hand write my notes

I also hand write my notes and mail them. At the end of the year, when there are contributions towards a class gift, I do design a thank you on computer stationery and I have the party the day before school and put the notes in their folders to go home. Using the computer would not help your carpal tunnel if you did the typing, but perhaps you could design a general note and plug the type of gift in so it would be personalized. This would be less typing once the first note was designed, and you could just print them out. Kids do enjoy receiving the cards, and it is good public relations for the parents to know that their gift, however small, was appreciated by the teacher. Interestingly enough, I receive very few written thank-yous for any of the holiday gift bags I give my children.
