I write to each parent before school starts. I include a friendly letter to the child and an introductory letter to the parents. I also include a survey for parents to fill out (form attached at end). I ask parents to fill out the form and mail it back to me before school begins. Then, the weekend before school starts, I call each family and talk to the child and the parent. I ask if they have any questions or concerns. Finally, after the first week of school, I call them again. I always have at least one positive thing to share about their child. By this time, I have parents in the palm of my hand! If I ever need to make contact about a problem, parents know I care about and understand their child.
