The mystery of the missing dads at Dixon has been explained. The students on the roster were last term's students. The promo flyer for new class was apparently not posted, thus no students enrolled and the students from the last class were not removed. Since they had already completed the class they were not aware they were still listed as being enrolled.

I'm going have to review the calendar and see if I can begin and complete a class before fall/winter break.

To Him be the glory.
