Design the perfect group class for the ultimate bonding experience

Connect2Classes creates custom experiences for shared learning

In our fast-paced world, we’re always looking for new ways to connect with loved ones. The key is finding activities that everyone can enjoy together.

At Connect2Classes, our focus is on both individual and group learning experiences. CEO Dallas Jasper says, “We love it when our students reach out to us for help envisioning the ultimate bonding experience! We get calls and emails from parents, co-workers, and groups of family and friends who want to do something unique and transformational together.”

With so many truly stellar teachers and master craftspeople operating in the Seattle area, there is an amazing pool of expertise to draw from. Cooking, arts, and technology classes are especially popular in group learning. Team building and morale events are attractive to local businesses and organizations.

“We are happy to work with any group to design a shared learning experience that caters to everyone’s interests and passions,” Dallas says.

Kristine Shields, a Grade 7 Parent Representative at The Bear Creek School, wanted to organize a unique event for moms and their pre-teen sons to come together and celebrate Mother’s Day.

“I wanted to try a group class for a special event and keep the cost reasonable,” Kristine says. “I had not seen on the list of classes one that fit. When I reached out to Connect2Classes, they had a wonderful suggestion and made the class logistics so easy.”

The class was Moms and Sons Private Chocolate Cooking Class, a chocolate-making class followed by a picnic dinner for 18 mothers and sons at Dawn’s Candy & Cake in Lynnwood. “The young men had loads of fun and really engaged in the chocolate project,” Kristine states. “The moms had fun with each other and connecting with our boys. The location was so agreeable to me bringing a picnic dinner. Their flexibility and friendliness along with the skills they had to teach us made for a really fun night.”

The event proved to be very impressive for the other parents, including the school’s Early Middle School and Middle School Division Head Jenn McDonough, who is the parent of a seventh grade student herself.

“All the parents sent thank you emails and said they would really want to do it again. I was a little nervous before the event, but I would totally do it again,” Kristine continues. “Everyone who signed up came and even my son said that it was more fun than he thought! Connecting with kids is deeper and so much more fun with a shared activity. It’s also great for community building within the school.”
