2014 Updates & New Calendar

Dear Parents,
We are excited as we look forward to 2014. In keeping with our commitment to providing a quality education for our students we are making a few changes that we hope will work well for everyone and enrich the school experience.

Firstly, we plan to start the school day earlier – at 8:30 am (doors open at 8:15). This will add a little more time at the mid-day break. We hope to incorporate more games and physical activity into their day.

We are also starting a Music program at Orbus. We will begin with individual piano lessons for all of the students. Orbus will provide the lessons, we are asking parents to only pay for the books each of them will need. We will inform you as soon as possible regarding how much that will be.

As we are a year-round school we have prepared a new calendar for 2014 (see below). Please take note as there are some changes from our previously posted School Calendar.

This is a good time for reminders as well. If your child is going to be late, picked up early, or absent please let us know as early as possible by email 
or by phone. If contacting us by phone, you may call the front desk and they will inform the school staff. We would appreciate it if you would let us know the reason and expected length of absence as well.

Please watch your email for more news and updates to come.

May 2014 be blessed!

Sincerely,
Orbus School Staff
