1. Bala Vihar open house & Satsanga timings –     Sun. Oct. 7, 2018

We will have Bala Vihar open house this Sunday, in addition to the regular Satsanga.

This is an opportunity for parents to know about the curriculum, to meet their teachers and to find out opportunities to help out the Bala Vihar class as a parent. Teachers can also come to know the parents of their students.

We encourage both parents, to attend the open house. If you have more than one child in Bala Vihar, each parent can split and attend one class. If only one parent is planning to attend, please choose to attend the lower grade. We will not allow parents to hop classes during the open house as it causes disturbance.

We will follow a special schedule as below, this Sunday:


8:35 AM – 10:15 AM
