Don’t Wait Until the Last Minute to Sign Up for a Program!

Too often quality activities are cancelled because too many people wait until the last minute to register.  Almost every activity has a minimum number of participants needed to cover the expenses or to make it enjoyable (think team sports).  If you see an activity you like, don’t hesitate, sign up today!

No News is Good News!
Once you have registered for a program, you will not hear from our office unless:

  • There is a change in the time or day.
  • Cancellation due to illness or inclement weather.
  • The program has to be cancelled, due to insufficient registration.
So, mark your calendar and plan to attend!

To make sure you receive all class communication, please make sure to update your email on your account or your child's, if they are the participant.  We also recommend agreeing to receive text messages in your account settings, to ensure that you receive any last minute class notifications.
