CTL Corner Summer Edition
August 13, 2018
Dear CTL Families:
We hope you're enjoying a wonderful summer break!
Our CTL Team has had a productive summer working together to ensure a smooth start to the 2018-19 school year. Teachers have been eagerly preparing their classrooms throughout the summer, and this week we are all together together for professional development and will be ready to greet you on August 21 from 2:00 to 3:00 in the classrooms for Meet the Teacher and at the Meet & Greet from 3:00 to 5:00 on the CTL Playground. Come prepared for an old-fashioned picnic where we will all mingle as the children play. It will be a festive celebration of the beginning of a new and exciting school year.
We are looking forward to getting back into the swing of things and to visiting with each of you.

Sarah Kelley Music School Partnership
CTL is the only school with this partnership, and we are excited for the opportunity. Sarah Kelley Music School is offering a special rate for CTL students in grades 5-8 who wish to attend during their music time on Tuesday from 2:30 to 4:00 or to students in grades K-8 who wish to attend on Friday from 1:30 to 3:00. The rate will be $200 per month for a 1 1/2-hour session each week instead of the regular rate of $275 per month.
The possibility of this partnership with Sarah has been long coming, and we are so excited for the opportunity. Many of their students get Grammy nominations, and their after-school music program is full with no existing slots. Checkout their website at http://www.sarahkellymusicschool.com.
Interested parents will need to provide transportation and register directly with the Sarah Kelley Music School. We would, however, like to check out the interest. If you are interested and plan to enroll, please contact Dr. Ellis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you are as excited as we are! What a wonderful opportunity our students have. This is huge!
