With Covid-19 limiting our ability to visit your school, our educators along with a few of our animal ambassadors, have come up with an entertaining and educational way to virtually visit you, on your time, in your classroom!
“Como Class Pass“, enables schools with preschoolers on up the ability to enjoy the same multi-aged, multi-themed programs that would normally visit schools throughout the year. Programs will include pre-recorded presentations of live animal ambassadors; some topics include fun, virtual activities. Once reserved, you will receive an access link to the program you selected that will be active for 7 days. Please do not submit the form until you are ready to show the videos. This will enable you to show your class the video at a time that works best for you. Note: You will not be able to give your students their own access.
Thanks to a generous Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Como is able to offer these entertaining and educational programs virtually, free of charge between now and February 28, 2022. Please email your choice of offerings below, along with the date and time you are requesting. All programs will have a follow up activity for teachers to use after the program.
