The day is designed for parents to learn alongside their children. While we do not require parents to attend, by attending as a chaperone you help us to keep costs low and continue offering great home school programs. This Spring we are offering a limited number of spots for parents to attend as chaperones at no program cost. No program cost parent spots will be filled on a first come first serve basis.
