Team Bonding Party

We are kicking off our season with our first Starz Team bonding party at the studio Saturday, October 12th from 6:00-7:30 PM

We will be drawing names to match students with their Big Sister/Brother – Little Sister for the year, so we’d love as many kids as possible to be there when their name is called. 🙂 (If you are unable to attend, please let us know and we will draw for you.) 
 
The kids will introduce themselves and give a fun fact or two. 🙂 

We will then play a few  team building games and enjoy popcorn. 🍿 

The staff is super excited for this season! We hope to see you all there!
