How can you help your child get the school year off to a good start? Giving an introduction letter to the teacher is a great option. A back-to-school letter helps the teacher get to know your child’s strengths and what your child needs help with.

These letters are set up in a way so kids can fill them out on their own (or with a little help from you). There’s one for older kids and one for younger kids. You can use the one for older kids as a guide to write a more traditional letter, if you and your child prefer.

Key takeaways

  • Use a 3×3 card to introduce teachers to your child’s strengths and challenges.

  • Fill out (and keep handy) a contact list for who to call at your child’s school.

  • Avoid homework battles by putting together a homework contract with your child.
