Reasons to Register Early!

Many classes are very popular and people know that in order to get a spot, they need to register early.

But there are also reasons to register early for classes that don’t usually fill up.  All of our classes are self supporting and we must reach minimum enrollment for a class to run.  There is a point (usually about 2-3 days before the program is due to start) that a program must be canceled if there aren’t enough people registered.  Very often people look to register after the program has been canceled, and if the registrations were done earlier, in many cases, the program would have run.  So, if you know you want to take a class, please register early.

Looking for fun? Try our Family Open Gym Basketball Program @ HJMS Gym on Sundays from December 7 - March 22 from 12-4:30PM. Only $2 pp, max $5 per family. There will be no Open Gym on 12/28 or 1/4. If the program needs to be cancelled due to inclement weather, a note will be posted on this page.

Drop-In Badminton: The Simsbury Badminton Club meets at Henry James on Tuesdays from 7:00-10:00pm throughout the school year. Anyone high school age and older is welcome to join the fun. Equipment is provided and instruction is available. For more information, call Carolyn Blick at 860-678-8166.
