    Class Schedule
    • September 7, 2022, 6:00 - 7:00 PM Mandatory Parent Meeting (Child must also come to this meeting)
    • Class times will be every Monday and Wednesday from 7:00pm – 9:00pm. I will have class schedules for everyone at the Parent Meeting. The drives will be scheduled at the first two nights of class. Drive times will usually be before class and on Saturdays, with some extra days as needed.
     
    Drive Schedule
    • The students will be responsible for signing up for their drive times during class.
    Students who have difficulty with reading or have special learning needs should realize that extra help may not be available.
     
    The class size will be a maximum of 22 students. In case of overload, priority will be given to the in-district students and the older students who live in our school district. I will notify parents that their child has been selected prior to the mandatory parent meeting.
     
    Because of the large number of last-minute cancellations in the past, all students selected for the course must pay the $350.00 enrollment fee by the Parent Meeting September 7, 2022. If any students chosen for the course do not meet the payment deadline, the oldest on the waiting list will be notified and will be enrolled upon payment of the $350.00.
