You are an important part of your child’s learning process and we encourage you to become as involved as possible. However, our instructors have found that the quality of instruction is affected by parent and/or sibling distractions. You are always welcome to discuss your child’s progress with his/ her instructor. We hope that your child will attend class independently. With your child’s best interest in mind, you are invited to attend the last class of the session. Thank you for your cooperation.
