Rising Star Competition Team

Our “Rising Star” Competition was continues to be a great success and we are happy to continue it in the 2018-19 season!

This is a great opportunity and learning experience for the girls.  Team members build lasting bonds and learn a sense of commitment and working together.  Self-esteem reaches a new level as does their desire to learn.  My teachers and I are looking forward to working with you and truly hope you will enroll in the class. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask!!
