Dear Parents & Guardians,

We are pleased you have chosen to enroll your student in the 2010 Ray Elementary School Summer Camp!

Camp begins on Monday, June 21 at 9:30 a.m. but before we get started, the staff would like to extend an invitation to parents and guardians of the campers to attend an informal orientation session on Wednesday, June 9 at 6 p.m. in the Ray Elementary School cafeteria. The session will last approximately 20 minutes and be followed by a question and answer session. It is not necessary to bring your child to this meeting.

We will discuss the camp in full detail, tackle any remaining questions you might need answered and have each student’s class schedule available.

If you have not paid your camper’s registration in full yet, the last day to fulfill the payment will be June 9. We will be accepting cash only payments from now until the day of orientation. If payment is not completed by this date, your child will not be permitted to take part in the camp.

It is also of the utmost importance that you complete the enclosed Chicago Park District Participant Information sheet and turn it in by or at orientation. If you are unable to attend the orientation, please either mail or return it to us in person in Room 213 at Ray by June 9. If you do not turn it in, your camper will not be able to attend the swimming portion of the camp.

We hope you will be able to attend and look forward to a great summer!


Ms. Alexis Scott and Mr. Adam Zielinski
