Halloween Week! 

it’s that time of year again – all students may wear their Halloween costumes to their class October 27-30th to get into the Halloween spirit! Also during this week, donate a non-perishable food item (or more) to help make the Thanksgiving season better for those in need.

Parents’ Week – October 27-November 1.

Please make sure that you stop in sometime during parents’ week, as you will see a size chart to sign off on the size of your child’s costume for us to order for the spring recital. Your child’s measurements will be taken ahead of time by their teacher. If the costume received is too big or too small and needs to be sent back, there will be a $25 charge for sending it back (this is a standard restocking fee charged to us by the costume companies) Please make every effort to be here to ensure that the right costume size is ordered. You will be asked to sign a form stating that you chose this size and agree to the $25 fee. 

Costume Payment

Participating in the spring recital is optional. If you are participating, costume payments are due by November 1. Costume costs were listed in the studio policy you signed when you signed up for classes . You may make partial payments in advance, but the total must be paid by November 1st or a costume will not be ordered. If you participated in the fundraiser, profit of what you sold can be applied to your costume charge.

Winter Weather Policy

In case of bad weather, cancelled classes may be made up during the month at a class of the same level. We do not always cancel when the school district does because the conditions may improve during the day.
