Back-to-school traditions are an important way to help students and families tap into the opportunities of a new school year. As teachers, we enjoy setting up and decorating our classrooms, organizing new school supplies, or maybe planning a brand-new unit to try teaching this year. We might even be thinking about bringing some new digital tools or media into our classroom instruction.
But back-to-school is also a great time to consider how we communicate with, and support, families during this part of the year that’s so pivotal to students’ success. To help make this year’s back-to-school time a little easier, we’ve put together a set of customizable templates focused on supporting you, your students, and their families during the transition back to the routines of the school year.
