“We, at Clara Barton, had great experiences working with Grasshopper. The entire team is very hardworking, is always reachable and they all are so efficient at what they do! Students loved this class! The follow up emails sent after every class by the teacher or Susan is something that keeps all parents in loop and depicts a lot of hard work on Grasshopper’s part. We love this team and look forward to seeing them again next year!”

“Grasshopper is such a great enrichment program that we’ve had in our after school lineup for many years. The students learn greatly from the curriculum as they gain confidence in speaking publicly. Their “It’s Debatable” is a wonderful way to introduce the value of debate to elementary school students. The staff all works very hard for our students, by providing individual feedback, video viewing, and tremendous encouragement. It has been a great addition to our student’s enrichment!.”

“Thank you for developing and facilitating an interactive and professional Business Etiquette workshop for the fifth graders at Samantha Smith and Alcott Elementary Schools. It was wonderful! Your topics on appearance, how to make introductions, how to shake hands appropriately, how to start a conversation, how to set a table and use the correct utensil and table manners were age appropriate and helpful to the students. I love the way you kept the workshop active allowing all students to participate. The students were having fun and learning at the same time!
I also appreciate that you created the flyer, managed the enrollment of the students, facilitated the payment and made parent contacts regarding changes. Your level of organization allowed me to advertise and recruit students which reduced any stress in offering this workshop for the first time. I could not have done this workshop without you. Grasshopper Enrichment made it easy and stress free… thank you!
I look forward to working with Grasshopper Enrichment next year. Due to the popularity of the workshop (we sold out within 24 hours!), I would recommend Business Etiquette to any organization or school interested in sharpening students’ social savvy. Thanks for making this a pleasant learning opportunity for my fifth graders.”
