    Help!>?

    HELP!>?

    can somebody help me write a formal letter?
    I am a working in a school.
    Right now my supervisor asked me to write a letter to the parents.
    But i have no idea how to start and write it nicely. (I am a ESL person)
    can someone here help me?

    I have to mention these things in the letter.


    Starting next week, all the kids that are 7 to 12 years old will be going to St.John for activities. Please make sure that they all arrive to our camp at 8 am.

    Simply start

    Dear Parents,

    And then put down what you would say if you had to talk to them in person. Pretend you are leaving a voice message on their answering machine. Draft that text and post it here, and someone can help you make it better.

    ok


    Dear Parents/Guardians:

    The next two weeks will be very busy and exciting! We will be exploring new activities in St. Johnís University.
    Due to the distance to travel, we need to leave earlier than usual in order to get to the program activities on time. Please have your child ready and at the community center by 7:45 a.m.

    Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated.

    Sincerely,

    Because of the time it will take us to travel to St. John's, we need to leave earlier than usual to get to the program activities on time. Please have your child at the community center and ready to go no later than 7:45 a.m.

    Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated.

    Sincerely,
    Do you want to say what will happen to late arrivals? Will there be simple day care available? Or will the center be closed and the parents will have to make other arrangements?
