Teacher Welcomes Students To School With Unusual Note, Then Parents Rush To Post It Online.

The start of the school year is always a trying time for students and teachers alike. We’ve seen teachers go above and beyond the call of duty to help their kids feel accepted and welcome in the classroom.

A fourth grade teacher at Bowen State School in Queensland, Australia, decided to make things a little easier on her students this year by sending them home with a goodie bag they’d never forget. The goodie bag contained 5 items and a note to explain their significance. A photo of the note went viral for all the right reasons. Check it out below.

“I am so glad that you’re here.
Here is a little goodie bag to help kick off the year.
The eraser is to remind you that it is ok to make mistakes. We’ll work and learn together, no matter what it takes.
The stickers mean we’ll stick together and work hard as a team.
The puzzle shows how we fit together, working towards a common theme.
The bookmark is to show you, you always have a place.
If you ever feel a little lost we’ll help you find your space.
The smarties are to remind you how smart I think you are.
Work hard and do your best.
Remember to aim far!â€
