Letters from Home

Parent & Community Partnerships has developed a program, Letters from Home, to help you and your student with this transition and hopefully to combat the onset of homesickness.

Letters from Home invites parents, family members and friends to write and submit a letter to their Colby-Sawyer student through our online submission form. From here, we’ll format the letter, print it and get it to your student during the first two weeks of school, which is typically the toughest time during the transition.

Letters can be words of encouragement, opportunities for reflections, pride and hopes for your student's success. This is a great opportunity to share all the things you want to say on move-in day, but might not be able to emotionally handle or that you are better able to articulate in a written letter.

(Special Thank You to the University of Arkansas for sharing this wonderful program!)
