For families that are currently registered for classes, please take a few moments and register on this site for access to the "members only" pages (Please note that you may ONLY request membership on the website after you've become a registered member for classes). On the sidebar, you will see "request membership" listed. You will need to fill out some information that will be sent to the website administration (Laurel Wenson, assistant director); you will then receive an email confirming your membership on this site. You will then need to create a family login and password that only you will know. The "members only" pages will include an online directory for members only, teacher pages for students who might miss a class assignment, optional family pages (you decide!), and much more. All memberships must be approved by the site adminstrator, so it will be a totally secure environment for registered families only. Thanks for being a part of the family!
Want to take a closer look? -- Take a "Virtual Tour" of the building that we call "home" each Tuesday. Look for the link on the left sidebar!
