Put the note below in an envelope with a cotton ball and send it to the parents the
first day of school. Here is a note for the parents, too.

Dear Parents,

Thank you for entrusting your child to me. I promise to do my best every day to be your child's companion in learning.

Sit down, relax, and hold this cotton ball in your hand. The softness will help you to recall the gentle spirit of your child. I will work alongside you this year to help your child grow.
