I would like to take this opportunity and introduce you our new committee and teachers of Orange County Turkish School and inform you about our new schedule for 2011 Fall and 2012 Spring School Semesters.

All our teachers and volunteers are already extremely excited to welcome our new students for this coming school year. We are embarking on a wonderful journey that will lead us to reach very many other members and students of our Turkish Society. I believe we are all in for another enjoyable and convenient school experience this coming year, too.

Part of my responsibility, in addition to directing, is to help you acclimate to the Turkish School, its guidelines, needs and structure. In this vein, I’ve also attached our Turkish School Guidelines as well.

Please note our tuition reflects our last year’s rates, and may be subject to change according to our new contract with SCCCC(Chinese Center). Please do not hesitate to contact me with your questions and concerns.

My e-mail address is bernakaan@cox.net and phone number is 949-412-5046.
