For your convenience, we have compiled the following list of holidays and events to mark on your calendar. Please keep in mind that your monthly tuition is based on lessons received for an entire school year, and not the number of classes received each month. This is standard private school policy. Remember that if your child misses a class, he/she has many opportunities to make up that class. Please check with your child’s teacher for the appropriate day and time. Remember, that we do not close for Teacher Workdays, or Religious Holidays.
