Thank You Notes from Teachers to Parents and Students

As a teacher you probably find yourself needing to thank people on a regular basis. Students, parents, other teachers – they all send gifts, notes, best wishes, help with school related issues and so on.

Which means you need to thank them.

But knowing what to say in a thank you note or message can be tricky. So if you’re unsure of what tone to use or what to include then the following thank you note wording examples should help.

I’ve divided them up by different type of note and who they are for. So they range from regular thank you notes to students and parents as well as specific notes for retirement wishes, gifts received, help from parents and students and more.

Thank you for the consonant support in your child’s education.
