April 9, 2014 Wednesday Letter

Dear Parents,

We are fully vested in the final quarter of this school year and want to make the most of the eight weeks that remain. In addition to academics, many fun, exciting school activities are planned and we look forward to seeing parents and students at these events! This is also registration season for returning and new families. Please be sure to follow all of the steps to re-register your child if he or she is returning for the 2014-15 school year. Applications for tuition assistance cannot be processed through FACTS without income verification, so make sure this critical step is followed. The signed contract is the final requirement that secures your child’s re-enrollment, so please sign and return the contract when it is sent home next week on April 16.

Have a beautiful week!

Mrs. Lori Riti

With the new Spring lines from Origami Owl, it couldn’t be easier to tell your unique story. Two of the most exciting new releases are a lighthouse charm and a bully proof shield charm!
