Back-to-School Letters Home!

Have you heard of Treat?  It is a brand of Shutterfly and they do cards. Really, really, cute cards for pretty much anything you would possibly need a card for.  Best part? They will take care of getting it wherever you need it to go!

I felt the need to switch it up this year for our introduction letters that we send home to our students the week before school starts.  I found Treat and check out how easy it was to put these together.  No joke, this took me less than 10 minutes!  I did not have to load the paper into the printer, make sure it was in the correct direction, fold them, put them in an envelope, all I did was hit send!

I think that I drove Mr. Cummings absolutely bonkers with a photo shoot prior.  
Thank goodness for rapid shoot!


There were so many options for cards! 
The one that worked best for me was the "Blank cards" that you could use a photo. 

After you chose your card, the process took literally 5 minutes since I knew exactly what I wanted to say inside of the card.

Here is a copy of what our first grade team came up to send home. Short and sweet!

Dear First Grader, 

Welcome to first grade!  I hope you had a terrific summer.  I can't wait to meet you!  

We will have lots of fun reading, writing, and learning new things together.  Do you know that you will have your own desk this year?
I have a pencil box, crayons, pencils, folders, scissors, and a glue stick for you to use in our classroom.
I am looking forward to seeing you on Monday, August 25, 2014.  I will meet you in the gymnasium at 8:45 am. See you soon!

                                          Your new teacher,   Mrs. Cummings

*Parents, feel free to contact me anytime via e-mail.  A more informational letter will be coming home the first day of school.

 I did not choose to plug in my students address' because we will not have our class lists until the middle of next week so I just had them mailed to my house.  I completed this little project around 5:00 p.m. and they shipped before the next morning with just regular shipping! 

 I can not wait to see them and share the final product!!!  
Stay tuned to check them out and a little Treat giveaway!
