Dear Parent or Guardian,
I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself and express my excitement about working with your child this semester [or year]. I love teaching grade school arithmetic because I care deeply about each of my students. I believe students can grow and develop by examining the issues we cover in class. The main goal of my course is to cover the fundamentals of math. Over the course of this year, we will introduce our students to the wonders of fractions and the four basic operations of Math (Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division).
Additional information about the class is provided in the syllabus attached to this email. Please read that syllabus and sign the detachable portion on the bottom of this note in order to indicate your understanding and support of the classroom system. There is also space provided for you to express any questions, concerns or comments. Students should return that portion to me.
Also note that if you ever have any comments, questions or concerns, I am available for phone calls and meetings (by appointment please) each day before and after school. To schedule a meeting, you may contact me via [insert e-mail address or phone number].
I am excited about working with your child. I welcome questions or comments, and am looking forward to a great year!
