Parent Email Template

The first time I got an email from a parent with a pointed concern, my internal temperature rose and I immediately got defensive. I spent well over an hour crafting the perfect email back.What a waste of time! I never even sent that email. Eventually I developed this template for all parent emails, and it has proved the ultimate time saver. parent-email-template

Dear ______,

(Insert student name) is (describe positive characteristics you’ve noticed about their student). He/She is a wonderful addition to our classroom community.

(Address concern, question, or other comment here in 2-5 sentences – keep it brief!)

(Insert student name) is lucky to have a parent that cares about him/her and his/her education.

Thank you for your support,
