Dear Parents/Guardians and Students:
Welcome to a new school year! We believe that this year will be a productive one for all students of Catholic Academy. In order to make this year both great and productive, we have come
up with guidelines for the students. These guidelines along with student effort and determination will help each child achieve academic success.
We look forward to working with each and every student this year. It is our goal to make the 2012-2013 school year the best yet! Thank you in advance for your time and cooperation.
As always, we are available to discuss any concerns. Please contact us via email at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
