Does anyone send out the "In a Million Words or Less" (tell me about your child) letter to parents on the first day (or week) of school? If so, was it successful? I'm thinking of doing that this coming year and wanted to get some feedback. I received one of these letters (as a parent) from my 8th grader's reading teacher last year. At first I thought, "Oh, great, something else I have to do...," but once I got started I really loved doing it. Talking about the ones we cherish most is something we all like to do, and it is supposed to help the teachers to relate better to the students as well.
