PAR Parent Orientation

We understand that families are very busy with many activities and respect your time. We ask that at least one parent attend a parent orientation each year in order to understand (either for the first time or as a returning participant) our program and its policies and procedures. We are constantly striving to make the program better for our participants and want to share the information in a group setting. Participant attendance is not required.

UPDATE: MARCH 16, 2020 
We care about our participants, families, and our volunteers. Like you, we are following the rapidly changing developments with the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), including what trusted organizations like Centers for Disease Control, World Health Organization and local health administrators are saying. Given the current situation, we are canceling our March parent orientations and working to post an orientation online as well as a page of frequently asked questions. 

Date Time as of 3.16.20
Wednesday, March 25th 6:00 pm canceled
Thursday, March 26th 6:00 pm canceled

par Attendance Policy

Regular attendance ensures the participant’s likelihood of advancement to the next level; therefore, we expect participants to attend at least 3 of 6 classes during the session. If for any reason you are unable to attend class, please contact us as soon as possible. Parents will be given a Handbook during Parent Orientation outlining all of The First Tee of Green Valley Ranch Policies.
