Welcome to Phelpstango

Click here for information and to donate to CATS Go Fund Me campaign to raise funds for our core of teachers who could not come to us during this Covid 19 Pandemic:

We did it! We just exceeded our initial goal of raising $10,000 for our teachers! Thanks to all of you for your generosity and support. Whether you were able to contribute money or helping to spread the information or consistently supporting our efforts you helped make this happen. Thank you beyond words. This was the best Anniversary present ever!

I will close the campaign now and will be distributing these funds to all of our lovely recipients by the end of next week. I’m so very proud of our extended community stepping up to help make a difficult situation much better. You are a class act. I can’t wait until we can embrace and dance in person again. 

In the meantime Anda, Pram, Kathy and I send everyone an enormous hug and Besitos!!
