Registration Form 2020-2021 (PDF)
You may sign your child up for only one class. Exceptions are made for staff children when necessary. We can only accept registration forms on the day of registration, so early drop off and mail-in of registration forms is not permitted. If you have difficulty understanding or reading English, you will need to bring someone with you to interpret because if your child is enrolled, you will be required to sign policies and answer questions that you must understand.
