2016-17 First Week Update

2016-17 First Week Update
Posted on 09/09/2016

We had a great first week at QAE! Thank you for helping your child adjust to our early start at 7:55 am. This has been a challenge for students (and parents!), and we appreciate your determination to help students learn about the importance of coming to school on time ready to learn.

Forms
Please return the printed forms sent sent home in the manila envelope on the first day, by Tuesday, September 12. We urgently need this information from all families. Please make sure you update the school on contact information changes during the year.

Pay Student Fees: Save some paper and time! The PTSA is handling online payments for the school supplies and technology fees. See the PTSA checklist for that and other forms for parents.
