Parents experience first-hand the dynamic interaction in our small classes, the amplified learning that happens in every subject, and the relaxed and happy atmosphere in the hallways. Parents participate in the class activities or just sit and watch. Either way, they go home with a new appreciation of their child's busy day!

Readings will be followed by a slideshow presentation of how a comic book comes together, and how both the art and the story are created not out of whole cloth, but are the products of a variety of inspirations and reference points.
