Letters to Kessler Families
Kayla shared letter and suggested not to put separate section for snack program – others agreed. Possible suggestions to add to list of things Parent Partnership pays for: soccer goals, cub companions & snack program (be clear that is a supplement for children). Add to letter how much PP needs to pay for everything we do in a year. Have the option to do cash or check (make sure to put in letter who to make check out to) distribute paper copy to students to take home. Have parents sign and return with their children. Child gets a bravo for bringing back to teacher. Suggestion: Teacher who has the highest % of letters returned gets $100. Holly McGraw will check with Mrs. Gates about obtaining envelopes. Another option is to buy envelopes. Annie volunteered to fold letters and put them in envelopes.
Letter to Businesses
Specific request ideas to put on letters:
Directory: Leslie Walton will help Jenny Swartz put directory together.
Snack Program: Teachers and parents are confused about who the snacks are meant for. Clear up this confusion by informing parents and teachers the snack program is a supplement for students who cannot bring snacks or forget their snacks at home.
