Welcome Handouts

Every year I make manila envelopes for each student containing a massive amount of forms for the parents to complete. These forms help the parents get to know me, the rules, procedures, and the forms give me a lot of information. I read every form and take note of allergies, trnsportation to and from school, which children have NOT been to preschool, and which parents want to help. :)
The forms are...
Welcome Letter (Syllabus)
Help Wanted - Volunteer Sign Up
Allergy Information
Child Pick Up Info
Snack Calendar
Questionnaire for Kinder Parents
School Supplies List
Below is the Questionnaire.


  1. If you could send me a copy of each that would be awesome! Even though we don't do snacks I might get to in the future. Thanks a ton.


  2. Would you post your questionaire? I would love to see that!

  3. I'd like to volunteer to help :)
