** The FRC provides Activities for Children (AC) for these classes. AC are for children whose parent is attending FRC programs. Please do not bring your children with you into the classroom. The classes are quite full, and small children can be a distraction for their parents or other people in the room. Please do not ask for an exception to this rule, as it is one that holds true for every FRC program regardless of the teacher. You will receive a handout with further information when you bring your child for the first time.
