Welcome Back Parents!

August 11, 2011

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 laptops.

You should have received a registration letter for the After School Program along with a registration form for the tuition company.

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 7th at dismissal (3:00 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 this 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.

This year the yearly calendar will be posted at the top of the blog spot. Should you want to check an specific date just click on the link at the top of the blog. Our consistent and continued movement to be more earth friendly will save 5,000 pieces of paper with this new feature.
