The start of a new school year can be exciting and scary all at the same time! Make going back a little easier with this darling Back to School Meet & Greet invitation!
host a fun Back to School Meet & Greet
When my daughter started kindergarten, she came home during the second week of school with an invitation for a Back to School Meet & Greet. Invitations were given to every student in the class and specified that all parents were welcome.
My daughter and I went together and it turned out to be one of the best ways to start the new school year! There were about 10-15 students who came and they had a blast playing in the backyard together, eating snow cones. I think each child left the party that day with several new friends, which really helped calm any “new school year jitters”. It was also a great way for the parents to get acquainted with each other.

- You can place these in envelopes if you want (not necessary), and then hand them out to the kids in your child’s class!
I love that this little get together is so low-key, but definitly helps the kids get over their school starting jitters!
