Do I get to participate?!

Sure!  Parent engagement during class time is a great way to bond with your kids, and to model lessons for them.  If your kids are 4 years or under, your participation is required.  If they are older, and they’ll let you, you are still welcome to come have fun with us.  (Did I mention that we have a parachute?)
