San Juan Ridge Family Resource Center is now enrolling students in this fall’s enrichment classes for children. These classes are designed to be fun, enriching, and provide experiences that may not be otherwise accessible for Ridge families.  All of our teachers are returning for “command performances” having led very popular classes in the past. All FRC classes will be on the Oak Tree Campus and are scheduled so that Grizzly Hill students can ride the afternoon school bus to the campus. With the exception of violin, a class registration fee is requested at time of enrollment. As always, scholarships are available to those who truly need them. All children must be pre-registered to attend these classes. Classes fill up fast, so please sign your student up as soon as possible.

On Mondays, Mariana Worden’s popular INTEGRATED ARTS for PRESCHOOLERS will return. With degrees in both Art and Early Childhood Education, Mariana introduces age-appropriate skills and activities that will help prepare young children for the classroom while providing an opportunity to be creative and express themselves through art. Self-portraits from last season’s class are now on display at the North San Juan Post Office.
