notes for me telling me to ‘Have a great day!,’ to ‘Have fun!’ and it
always sent me off feeling encouraged and supported,” said Debra

know that you believe in them as they go off to school to face the new
challenges of the day, is so important.”

handwritten note is an easy and meaningful way to connect with your
child and tell them they matter.”
