MERCHANDISE

 

Check In
All children will be checked in with their teacher in each class.  Parents can escort the younger children to the teacher (waiting at the door) and they will be immediately checked in and any notes will be distributed at this time.  The teachers love to hear parent feedback, but we would prefer you to make an appointment to discuss your child's progress, or attend one of our observation dates.  This allows our instructors to keep on a timely schedule.
Observation

Summer Observation takes place during the last class of the session.

Parents are encouraged to observe class during the season:

  • Nov. 1-7

  • Feb. 1-7
