What to expect on the First Day?

We would like to extend an invitation to any parents who may wish to stay and observe for the first 15 minutes of class.  However, we do ask that parents do not attend class at any other time to ensure focus and productivity in the classroom.

What to expect on the Last Day?

Remember to mark your calendars!  On the last day of every session, each class will have a performance showcase.  This showcase is a 15-30 minute performance for family members and friends to see what the class has been learning during the session.  Details concerning times, attire, and any other information will be sent home with each student during the last week for their class session.
