    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by Bishoy Abdel, Apr 9, 2013.

    I would like to welcome you to the new school year 2013 ( here ; to link or not ) wishing you and your family success and perosperity. Over the year, our school is working ( or was working? or has been working ? ) closely with parents to instil the value of culture in our children.

    2- We are looking forward to ( or we look forward to ) leading your children through a wonderful experience .
