When you meet your child’s teacher for the first time, and you want to say, “yoroshiku-onegaishimasu’, you can say these phrases.


Thank you for teaching Miu this year.

I’m glad that you’re her teacher this year.

She’s looking forward to your class.

If you would like to say a full introduction, you can use these long or short versions.

Hi, my name is Akiko. I’m Shuya’s mom. Nice to meet you! Thank you for teaching him!

Bus Hint: If you ride the bus, you receive the bus schedule a week or so before school starts. If you don’t receive it, you can go online and find the transportation e-mail and schedule. “We didn’t receive the bus schedule yet. What should we do?”
