Lunch - Lunch will be after the classes, from 1:30 until 2:00 pm, and will consist of pizza, snacks, oranges, juice and anything else parents may bring. Lunch is included in the cost of the seminar. If you are a parent and will be coming but will not be participating in the classes please consider bringing something to contribute to the lunch.
