William McGee

Welcome Back

Dear Parents and Students,

    Welcome back to Mother Teresa Regional School for another year of learning.  School begins on Tuesday, September 2, 2014 and will dismiss at 12:00 p.m. Wednesday through Friday will be normal dismissal at 2:30 p.m. The classrooms might be warm so students should dress in uniforms with short sleeves.  They should also bring bottled water with them to drink to avoid dehydration in the event the classrooms are warm. I look forward to seeing everyone on the first day of classes.  Hope everyone enjoyed their summer and are well-rested for the start of school.

 

God Bless,

Mr. McGee
