Welcome Back Letter September 2009

August 6, 2009

Dear Parents,

I hope that this letter finds you well and that you and your family are having an enjoyable summer.

The beginning of August always signals that the time is fast approaching for school to begin as the air waves are full of back to school sales on everything from pencils to hoodies.

Enclosed with this letter is the tuition card for the 2009-2010 school year along with a registration letter for the After School Program. Your child’s name should appear on the label on the back of the card with his/her grade.

I ask that you look over the tuition card so that you will become familiar with the dates for payment etc. Should you have any questions please feel free to bring them up at the opening parent meeting scheduled for

Tuesday September 8th.

If you are interested in enrolling your child in the After School Program I ask that you bring the papers with you to the office before September1st. The program will begin on the first day of school

September 9th at dismissal (4:00 PM).

Many parents have called requesting information on the supplies needed for school for the upcoming year. I have requested that the teacher’s post their back to school supply list on the school blog I suggest that you bookmark this page on your computer as you will be referring to the school blog many times this year for weekly announcements, homework assignments and the comings and goings of your child’s class. For those parents who are new to OLQM I welcome you and I have listed below the names of the teachers with the grades so that as you review the blog you will know your child’s teacher’s name to view the supply list.
