Doing it the Write Way Together!
Welcome Back to the 2009-10 school year. Everyone has returned from a wonderful PEI summer, and we are ready and
eager to enter into an exciting school year ahead of us .
As the staff of Athena Consolidated, we are happy to welcome all the new students and their families to our school,
especially the new Grade O ne students ....just to see the excitement, the wonder, the fear of the unknown of such a big,
new world called school. And parents, you did a great job leaving your child in our hands (not too many tears!). We
promise to take good care of all the students and give them the best education we can.
We look forward to meeting all of you at our Open House on Thursday, September 17 at 7:00 p.m. W e will begin in the
cafeteria for a brief gathering and then head to the classrooms.
We plan on sending newsletters home on a regular basis so please be on the look out for happenings and coming events
that will be of interest to you and your child.
We look forward to a great year ahead and hope our relationship with you remains open and welcome at all times. If you
wish to speak with any of us, we look forward to hearing from you.
