I would just like to take this chance to welcome you to the Elementary. I hope that you find your time here truly enjoyable, and I would really like you to go away wanting more, because that really is the mark of a good school. I hope that you find the students and teachers here welcoming and attentive. Please do your best to ignore the pesky poltergeist Mabel in the attic. She lives (if lives is really the right word) to cause as much havoc as she possibly can.
Anyway, I wish you the best of luck with your studies, and I hope that you enjoy yourself at the Elementary, because it will not just be your school but also, I hope, your home for the next few years.
Alfred William Biggins
