Template Thursday: A “Back to School” Letter Template

I’m continuing my series of copy-able letters to sponsored children. To read more about this series, click here. To view other templates, click the “Sponsor Letter Templates” link under the main blog header (or here, if reading in a feed).  Want to pin this template to Pinterest? just use the “pin-it” button at the bottom of this post. Easy Peazy!

It’s that time of year again! Children across the country are lamenting while their parents cheer: “back to school is oh so near!”

So in keeping with the School theme, here’s your chance to encourage your kids to study hard and learn all they can – after all, the Bible tells us: 

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction. ~Proverbs 1:7

If you do not have a free scribd account, and do not want to create one, you can view the template here on Google Docs.

*Ideally, you should mail letters to your Compassion Sponsored children 2-3 months in advance of a holiday/event – I realize this template is a bit late, but I also think that it’s fun to send letters in “real time,” too. Either way, you kids will love to hear from you – even if the letter is late (it won’t be late to them – it will be right on time, because it comes from you).

**Also, please note that I do not encourage you to abandon letter-writing and just send these templates. Instead, these are meant to be used as a guide in building your relationship with your sponsored kids. As you learn more about your child, it should become easier to write them without using the templates. Hopefully, these templates can be helpful in ‘kick-starting’ relationships or  sending short notes when you’re pressed for time or when your brain is tired.
