Weekly Parent Email – August 20, 2021
I hope your student had a great first week of school! Our mentors were thrilled to see returning students back in class and excited to welcome new ones. One of the most important parts of creating a Transformational Learning Experience is developing a close personal connection between mentor and student. We look forward to getting to know each of them and learning what excites them most in their educational and personal journeys.
After an exciting summer break, it can be a challenge to adjust back into the swing of the school year. If you’re still settling in and have any questions, please reply to this email or give our Customer Service Team a call at 800-200-6869. We want you and your student to have a fantastic experience this year and will do everything we can to make it happen!
Executive Director, LAU
