  • Workshops Begin

    Most workshops begin on Monday, August 22, 2016 at both San Andreas and Ione.  Please check the workshops schedules for exceptions.

    Many workshops had more students sign up for them than there is space.  You may get a phone call or email from the workshop instructor letting you know that you are on the waiting list.  If you do not hear from them, you should just show up for the first class. Please understand that just because you got a confirmation email for a workshop does not guarantee that you are in the class! 

    Also please remember that if you wish to add or drop a workshop, you still must fill out an Add-Drop slip and turn it in to the front desk with the mentor or workshop instructor's signature.
