Hello MMJGA Participants & Parents,

This is the first of many newsletter for the 2008 summer. For those of you who find email to be the best form of communication, this is for you. For those who don't check you're email as often, don't worry: I will continue to call. The weekly email newsletter is just a simple way to get all of the information down on paper.
