Dear Parents and Guardians:

I hope families are having a wonderful summer! During the summer months, families find the time to travel to new places, spending days at the beach, and slow down enjoy each day. I’ve have spent this month collaborating and partnering with other METCO districts to plan for the upcoming school year. I’m ecstatic to share with families the amazing future events. Families’ partnerships with the program and school are vital elements to maximize each student educational and social-emotional development.

Our first METCO parent’s meeting will be Ice Cream Welcome Back Social, which will be held on Thursday, August 15th at Brooke Charter School Roslindale, 200 American Legion Highway (see attached flyer). During the social parents will be given the new bus routes and have the opportunity to pay their $50.00 (per family) donation to the program. I will forward to seeing everyone on the 15th and if you have any questions before then, please do not hesitate to contact me at mthomas@arlington.k12.ma.us .

Sincerely,

Margaret Credle Thomas

METCO Director
