Calling All Parents!
IOSA wants to see you at our Saturday workshops!! Please know that school-aged children are ALWAYS welcome at our workshops! We love including them in our activities and experiencing our professional development right alongside the people it is most important to, our children! Restrooms are conveniently at hands and snacks are always provided! We would love to see you, and your children, at our workshops this year!
Do you have children under age 5? Younger students are not always as able to participate successfully with our workshops, but IOSA is considering providing a childcare option! If you would personally benefit from having childcare available at workshops for those children under age 5, please take a moment to note that interest on the form below. Thank you!
