MIPA Summer Workshop Director Sara-Beth Badalamente loves to visit MIPA member schools – either in person or virtually via web conference call – to talk to students about our program. If you’d like Sara-Beth in your classroom, please contact her directly at [email protected]. Please include preferred dates and/or times when your class meets, and a phone number where Sara-Beth can call you to finalize plans.
We’ll mail your students (and their parents) info about camp!
We’ll mail a letter with detailed program information to up to five of your students and their parents. Just tell us about them! (We need an address so the letter reaches their home and information about your recommendations for what workshop classes they should consider.) Here’s an example of the letter we’ll send.
