My own correspondence has doubled since getting my hands on this book!' - Cathie West, Principal, Mountain Way Elementary School, Granite Falls, WA 'The letters cover a wide variety of topics and give administrators ideas on what kind of letters to write. After going through the letters, I realize that I need to send more letters of appreciation to parents and organizations' - Gina Segobiano, Principal/Superintendent, Signal Hill School District 181, Belleville, IL As the key communicators for schools, principals write a wide range of correspondence-from thank-you letters and congratulations to best wishes and other personal notes.
