Welcome letter to parents | ELM-357


Establishing a collaborative unit with teachers, families, and students builds a strong bond to support the growth of the students. Building a rapport and sharing information with families is a critical step in creating relationships that support the learning environment and the connection between home and school.

The letter should address the following:

The family’s role in developing a self-regulated learner in the home environment. 

Two strategies families can use to promote independent learning at home. Explain how this home-extension supports student development and academic achievement.

Recommend two technological resources and one non-technological resource that you and the families can use throughout the school year to communicate students’ progress. 

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
