I just made a trip to the post office to mail Welcome to 4th Grade cards to my new students. This is a tradition at my school. A few weeks before school begins, all the teachers mail a letter or card to their incoming class. We've been doing this for more then ten years, after our staff read the book Parents on Your Side by Lee Canter.
Sometimes I use my Stampin Up Stamps, but this year I decided to update a design I used two years ago. I created a word mosaic using my students first names. The word mosaic was created on the website, Image Chef. I created the card using Print Shop, which is a software program. I use Print Shop a lot to create name tags, labels, signs, and posters. I will talk more about that in a later post.
Mailing the welcome cards is a sure sign that the adventure of a new school year is about to begin.
