A Sample Letter to Give Your Child’s Teacher
We are the parents of Child who is a # grade student in Teacher’s class.
We thank you for your efforts and hard work to educate our child. She/He is learning a lot and
progressing well in your class. We understand that, beside a great education, you also provide
opportunities to our child to learn about several cultural activities that she/he may not be able to
experience from other resources. In the upcoming holiday season she/he would learn a lot about
holidays celebrated among various cultures in the United States, such as Christmas, Hanukkah
This has encouraged us to share our cultural heritage with her/his classmates, the holidays of Eid
and the Fasting month of Ramadan. These activities are celebrated and cherished by over six
million American-Muslim community in this country and also by over 1.2 Billion Muslims all
over the world. The fasting month of Ramadan started on September 23rd and Eid al-Fitr, the
Festival of Breaking the Fast, was celebrated on October 23rd of this year. The third prominent
festival, Eid al-Adha, the Festival of Sacrifice, will be celebrated on or about December 31st.
To this end, we would like to request your support and assistance to make a short presentation to
her/his class about Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr. At that time, our child would also like to share an
activity book with her classmates which, we are sure, would add a pleasant learning experience to
them. We are planning to make this presentation in a couple of weeks best suited to your class
schedule. We are enclosing a Fact Sheet for Educators about these festivals and the Child Activity
Book for your information.
If you should have any questions or need to contact us we can be reached at 123-4567 (home) or
We look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your support.
