This year we are going to have classes set up a little differently. We’ll start earlier and have more sessions offered. We’ll also have students and teachers bring a sack lunch so that we can have a class during the lunch time. We want to ensure each teacher gets time off to take a class or just take a break. This is the schedule we are looking at:
