Parent Passion Class


ARS families rotate teaching lessons called Parent Passion class. It is appropriately named because parents teach what they are passionate about or what they are passionate about learning themselves (and then teaching what they have learned) or what the students are wanting to learn about.

Parent Passion class is held every week. Sequoias and Redwood classes DO NOT participate in parent passion, however, those families are still welcome to teach a class to the lower grades.
