Dear Bay Farm Parents,
It is with great pleasure to share that we have lined up an incredible facilitator for your School Smarts program*!
Please register for School Smarts and take advantage of this free 7-week parent enrichment program. Program begins first week of October.
School Smarts: The curriculum will cover aspects of their child’s developmental process (how they learn and what they will learn, and how families can support that journey), as well as serve as a conduit to increase parental leadership/volunteerism at your school.
Dinner and childcare are included.
