    [DRAFT COPY – NOT FOR FINAL RELEASE! Please read the revisions! Thank you! ~CN]

    St. Hadrian’s Preparatory Academy
    25 Bristol Road
    Gotham City, NJ

    Dear Sir or Madam:

    Your application on behalf of _______________ for entry into St. Hadrian’s Preparatory Academy has been, we are pleased to say, accepted unconditionally [pending payment in full of tuition fees and other incidental costs]. Congratulations! Your child is set to join the illustrious ranks of past graduates.

    Our alumni include:
    Mr. Bruce Wayen, Chairperson and CEO of Wayne Industries and Holdings
    Dr. Jonathan Crane, PhD in Applied Psychology
    Mr. Oswald Chesterfield Cobblepot, Private Business Owner
    Dr. Thomas Elliott, PhD, Head of Surgery at Gotham General Hospital
    Mr. Maximilian Zeus, CEO of Olympus Enterprises
    [Is this it? Dear lord, we need to update this list. Isn’t the Cain lad a world-class athlete?]

    Over the next three years, your child will be taught by the very best and brightest. This year, we are pleased to announce a number of new faces to our faculty, including Dr. Kirk Langstrom in the sciences and Monsieur Henri Malone, our newly arrived gymnastics and physical education instructor from Paris, France. [How do you pronounce that? No, I know the “Henri” bit, but the “Malone” – isn’t there some arsonist by that name? “Mal-ohnne?” Oh. Well the name certainly looks similar.]

    Term begins on September 10.

    Welcome to the Academy!

    Dr. Carter Nichols, PhD

    [Look, we can’t very well tell them about the reptile issue, can we? Or Mr. Malone’s unexplained absences and habit of going about shirtless. We just made this a proper school after all that business with the masks and strange cult activity when it was a finishing school for girls. No, not the Madonna fanclub! Good lord, were you simply not present for that? Typical.

    Although, Ms. Madison, please do notify our groundskeeper about the bat problem, it’s getting out of hand.]
