Welcome Back to School!


School is a new and exciting experience for your kindergartners and first-graders—and for their parents. Soon you’ll have the opportunity to connect with your students’ families during parent-teacher conferences. And as you know, successful parent-teacher conferences require lots of planning beforehand, effective communication during the conference, and follow-through afterward.

NESTLE® JUICY JUICE® and Scholastic have partnered to develop valuable, time-saving tools and reproducibles to help you maximize your partnership with parents—and your students’ development and education—right from the start! This year, make the connections between home and school your strongest yet.
