Linked Post: End Of Summer Letter To Parents
Benjamin Kerns is a ym360 Blog Contributor and a good buddy of ours. He writes an excellent post on his (also excellent) blog, Average Youth Ministry.
It's an "End of Summer" letter to the parents of his students. It struck me not only as good content, but as a good idea for you to model, as well.
Below you'll find an excerpt of Ben's letter to the parents of his students. Head on over to his blog to read the full article, and maybe consider sending your own, if you don't already.
End Of Summer Letter To Parents
