We will use this list to send out information about our Student Day Program by EMail. We will normally send no more than one email per month between July and October, and as needed in November to make sure you have the most current information including demonstration schedules, special activities and other details you may need for your visit.

We will also use this list to send information packets once per year via the US Post Office. If you also like to receive the basic information packet in addition to the EMail information, all you need to do is include either your home or school mailing address.
