Welcome Back to School!!!

Dear Conservatory Families,

Our first day of online Visual Arts is this Saturday, January 23rd. Look for the email from your student’s teacher with the Zoom and Google Classroom links.

Parents can join a Zoom conference room each Saturday between 9:30am and 10:30am. Due to security concerns, we cannot post the Zoom link to this public web page. If you would like to get the link, please email Kathy Lee or if you are on Facebook, look in our private group here. Sign up to be a room parent to support fundraising events for the program, and keep using smile.amazon.com to contribute that way.
