Tip #10 for Making Your Next School Year Easier

With the dog days of summer nearly behind us, it’s time to start thinking in earnest about the coming school year – and the students with whom we get to spend the next 10 months. So without further ado, here’s my final word on the 10 Things To Do This Summer To Make Next Year Easier.

A few weeks before school starts, I like to send a letter to my students. It can be fairly simple – just a note that demonstrates how excited I am about the year ahead, and how seriously I take learning. In my letter, I try to give students some insight into what they’ll be learning and how my classroom is structured. I also make sure to let them know that parents play a critical role in its function. They need to know that parents will be a part of their success!

If you’ve also taken the time to send a letter to parents (see Day 9), you’ll have hit all the most important communication bases, and made a powerful first impression to boot!

I hope you’ve had a positive and productive summer! If you’ve made it through all the suggestions in the 10 Things series, you’re already off and running. Good luck and best wishes for a positive school year!
