PLAN YOUR CELEBRATION
Wrapping up your lessons soon? Don’t forget these important steps:
- Plan a celebration! Your student has been working hard – below are the suggestion for how to acknowledge their accomplishments and make it a day your student will never forget. For some kids, working towards a celebration, especially when sharing a new skill with a friend or family, can be a great motivator. Start talking about your celebration a few weeks in advance to help get your student excited.
- Complete this 5 minute, feedback survey. CoachArt wants to know how to better support you and our students.
- Send us your magical moments! Got a great picture or video from your lessons? Please email it to your Program Manager.
- What’s next? Want to keep working with the same student? Change subjects? Take a break? Email your Program Manager to share.
Congratulations on the end of your lessons!
Thank you so much for bringing joy and play into your student’s life.
