HSS Elementary Batch 1983 & High School Batch 1987
Homecoming and Grand Reunion
Tagbilaran City



April 20, 2008

Dear Batchmates,

   Hi! Kumusta na?  Hapit na atong grand reunion pohon!

   After  much brainstorming and careful deliberation during the series of pre-reunion meetings, i.e,. last April 28, 2007 in Manila; and July 12 & 18, 2007 and April 19, 2008 in Bohol, the Steering Committee  has finally come up with the reunion details. 
   
   With barely  three months to go, it has been decided  that for practical reasons,  there will be ONE  GRAND REUNION for both HSS Elementary Batch 1983 and High School Batch 1987 on July 18-20, 2008 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday).

   We do hope to see you and your family on this momentous occasion of our  25th Anniversary  as graduates of our Elementary Class and 21st Anniversary  as alumnae of our High School Class.

   Regarding contributions, everyone (whether attending or not) is welcome to donate/pledge any amount which will hopefully cover expenses for the food (fellowship luncheon with all school personnel, batch fellowship dinner, beach party with family)  souvenir program, souvenir items, batch project for the school, outreach project, T-shirt, etc.  However, if not enough funds will be available, a minimal one-time registration fee will be collected.
   We are also preparing our updated batch directory, souvenir program, and powerpoint presentation showcasing the “before” and “now” look of each and every one of us (whether coming or  not for the reunion).  You can make this easy for us by sending us your recent  solo photo (we will scan our old photos from our yearbook) and giving us your updated personal information.
   The reply slip, schedule of activities, and details of the latest meeting are presented hereafter.
   Mahinangpon nga magpa-abot kami kanimo. Daghang salamat and God bless us all.


Very truly yours,
