Bonjour Everyone!

Due to changes in Augusta’s School district policies, Buker Community Center is no longer able to promote their community classes directly to the students this semester – which translated with a huge drop in registration and attendance to all the classes at Buker – including our very own “Fun in French for Kids”.

I also had a few families that mentioned that although they were interested, they would be missing 2 Saturdays or more and therefore didn’t register….

Sooo, in order to make it easier for everyone and simply to keep the ball rolling with this class that I really don’t want to cancel,  I’m now giving the option of simply paying-per-class.  Show up whichever dates you can and learn and sing French for an hour!    Classes will be small, which means more individual attention – during our first Saturday, our very small class was able to learn 10 different color names, count 1 to 10 and sing 2 new songs while playing games and having fun – not bad for an hour!

So I invite all of you to come – when you can – at either of these dates Saturdays Sept 28th, October 12th and 26th, and November 2nd and 16th.  From 10 a.m. to 11:00 a.m at Buker Community Centerlocated at 22 Armory St. in Augusta.

If you register for the whole season, the price is now $42, (since one Saturday has passed) otherwise you can pay-per-lesson instead for $10 per family.     I’m also changing the price to include a family  package instead of charging per Student.    So if you have 3 children – it just $42/semester (or $10/class) for the whole family instead of per student.

As before, A parent, grandparent or adult caregiver must accompany each child or pair of siblings. In most cases the adults end up having as much fun, if not more, than the children!

If you would like more information, please to not hesitate to contact me at , by email at or simply show up at Buker Center on the Saturdays mentioned above.  I hope to see you soon!
