Langston University "Education is the Passport to the World"
Students and Parents
Dear Kindergarten Grade Families, Welcome to Marcus Garvey! I hope you all had a great summer. I am so excited for this new 2016- 2017 school year and working with all your scholars. I firmly believe education is the passport to the world. I will be working extremely hard to establish an environment that fosters highly intensive learning. However, you and your scholar will be working equally hard, in order to make this year a success. I encourage you, to take this time to_ sit down with your child, to discuss the importance of their education. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. Together we can make this year a great experience for your child. Thank in advance for your support! Remember to bring your classroom supplies so that you are ready to learn on the first day of school. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at (773) 535-2763 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org-Ms. Susberry
