Be Awesome Family Workshops

At Be Awesome, we know that you want to be the best parent for your kids. To do that you need confidence in your ability to communicate and guide them through the world. The problem is it can feel like we are speaking a different language than our kids and we are comparing ourselves to other parents while second guessing ourselves. Which leaves us feeling inadequate, helpless, and isolated. We believe you ARE the best parent for your child and communicating with them doesn’t have to be a chore. We understand the challenges of parenting and have experienced the second-guessing and fear firsthand. That’s why we provide Awesome Families Workshops. Here’s how we do it. We host provide three weekly sessions for family members ages 10 up to improve communication and collaboration. We include dinner, and child care for the littles. Register today and stop fretting about what to say and be confident your parenting.

Safety-First-scaled

As we drop off and pick up scholars at school, we need to respect our neighbors.  They have been reporting to law enforcement the speeding in the neighborhood, blocking driveways and blowing through stop signs.  All traffic laws should be obeyed on and off campus.

Arrive-Early

Plan to leave home sooner in the morning to get your scholars to school on time.  The closer you arrive to the start of school, the more traffic there will be.  Scholars can be dropped off as early as 7:20.  We do have a strict tardy policy and know that traffic can slow down starting at 7:40.  Please plan accordingly.  

Friday-Appointments
All appointments including dentist, doctor, orthodontist, etc. should be scheduled on Fridays or after school.  Fridays are the perfect day since we have it off and your scholar(s) will not miss class time.

PHOTO ID REQUIRED

TO SIGN-OUT YOUR SCHOLAR

PHOTO-IDIf you need to sign-out your scholar, you will be required to show your ID and we will make a copy of it for our records.
