Holiday Letter to Faculty, Students, and Parents
The holidays are a time to show others your appreciation. Thank teachers, volunteers, students, and parents for their hard work and support by sending out a holiday letter. These messages offer the chance to highlight new programs, refreshen school mission, and re-enforce education goals for the school year. Check out these tips to sending out the perfect holiday message to the school community:
Share Your School's Mission
Remind the school community the overall mission of your school and the vision it values. This is a time where you can introduce upcoming programs and initiatives that help the school reach its goals.
Similar to introducing new programs, you can also share specific accomplishments from current initiatives to help students reach their full potential. Use examples to show how students are being challenged, the opportunities available, and student engagement.
Educating students is a collaborative task, involving everyone in the school community– teachers, parents, school board members, and school counselors to name a few. You can spotlight contributions from those who have played critical roles in helping students succeed.
Distribute your letter in a variety of formats. You can send the message as a hard copy home with students, email it, or post it to your school or district website. You can also utilize social media like Facebook and Twitter. Whichever method you choose, its best to choose the means of communication that will increase the number of people who read the letter.
