Calling All 5th-8th Grade Gentlemen:
No surprise here–more young ladies have signed up for Junior Cotillion than young men. To achieve the best teaching situation, we need an equal male/female ratio.
Can you help recruit more boys?

Oh, and also have them watch this Youtube video of other boys talking about their experience.
Please don’t hesitate to email or call if you have questions.
