Long-Term Sub

Hey everyone,

I'm starting a long-term sub position on Tuesday in First grade. I want to send a letter home with the kids that day introducing myself to their families. I was wondering if anyone had a letter template I could use or ideas on what I should include in this letter? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks so much

you might mention in your letter if you are or have been "working closely with Mr./Mrs. X it see that everything is in place for Room ABC to have a fine rest of the year, next 6 weeks, whatever." Mention what you will be continuing to do in class that has been done all year, so that you settle down the parents.

want to see what communication the current teacher has done and also run your letter past the principal.

I don't have a template, but here are some thoughts about what I'd put in a letter.

I'd let the parents know my name, something about my experience (if I'm not in my first teaching job), how pleased to be working with their students for the next _______ weeks. Maybe include something about homework policy (it will be the same, might change a bit over the next few weeks). Perhaps how glad you'd be to have a chance to meet them while you are their child's teacher.

You also may want to meet with the principal or designee and get an end of the year time line: testing, report cards, cums, etc. and your responsibilities for them. You'll also probably be packing up the classroom for summer cleaning.

Will you be in the class until the end of the year?
If so I would recommend having a meeting to introduce yourself to the parents so you can let them know about your qualifications, classroom management, discipline . . . . could save you from a lot of headaches later.

Thank you so much for all of the ideas. Yes, I will be in there until the end of the year. I worked closely with the teacher in March to get everything situated, subbed for her a few days and met the students. That's a great idea to have a parent meeting. I will talk with the principal on Monday to see how I should go about doing that. Thanks again
