Letter from Parents

Who knows their child better than a parent?  At the beginning of the school year, the teacher should send home the template and request that parents complete it and return it to school.  The information that can be gained from this activity is priceless, and can deepen the teacher's understanding of the students.  Most parents are more than happy to be asked to give input on their child.
