Preschools and elementary schools write holiday letters to students’ parents because younger children are not usually responsible enough to understand or retain the information if it is addressed to them. For older students such as those in high school or college, school administration may just write the letter to them instead of placing parents in-between.
Holiday letters are usually written to provide information of the duration of the holidays and any other information such as events during the holidays or back to school directives. The tone of the letter needs to be friendly, yet professional – a school administrator, teacher or a principal usually writes a letter of this nature, so it is important for them to keep a distance with students when communicating with them.
Some humor may be added, however try to keep it to the minimum. If it is around Christmas time that you are writing a holiday letter, you can add Christmas and New Year wishes in your letter. You can also amalgamate an end of the term letter with a holiday letter and be done by writing one instead of brainstorming for two. It is basically up to you what you want to write in a holiday letter, as long as you keep within the parameters of decorum.

As the term comes to an end, I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! The year 2015 went by like a whirlwind but you all achieved a lot – from winning the Interstate Soccer Tournament to Edward High School being named Top School in the County, we have had the best of all worlds this year!
Winter holidays commence from tomorrow December 21, 2015. Please pick up your holiday homework packs from your class teachers before you leave. Holiday homework must be submitted as soon as school reopens on January 11, 2016. During the holidays, we have arranged for a charity event at the school premises – a concert by our very own school band, The Edwards. We would like you all to contribute by attending the event and showing support for the less fortunate.
Please remember that school timings will not change when school reopens in January. All of you are expected to report to your class on the designated time mentioned on your school timetable stubs.
Have a wonderful winter break and a stupendous year in 2016!
