HOW TO WATCH A GOOD PROGRAM BE ELIMINATED
Nothing eliminates a recreation program faster than residents
who wait until the last minute to register. There is a point when
a program must be canceled or modified if there is insufficient
registration. All programs require a high level of coordination,
often including facility scheduling, staffing, volunteer recruitment
and purchasing of supplies.
Pre-registration is required for all leisure programs. Instructors are not permitted to accept money or registration
forms at class.
In order to
provide the best programs possible, we ask each participant or
parent to complete a program evaluation form to be handed out by
the instructor the last day of the programs. Please complete our
Class Evaluation Sheet. Completed forms can be given to the
instructor or sent attn:
Christina Bishop, fax 301-475-4108 or
mailed to: R&P at P.O. Box 653, Leonardtown, MD 20650.
