Dear Parents,


We hope you all had a wonderful and restful break!

As you are all aware Ms. Mailliw has not yet been able to return to Maryel International due to medical reasons, for this reason Ms. Dhariana will be taking her place.


Also, as the schedules for both of our groups have changed, we have decided to design one weekly for all of our students.


Have a great weekend!
