October Happenings

Hello On Center Families!

HOMECOMING
Thanks so much for to all of you that participated in the UM Homecoming parade. It was a SUPER success! We feel that this was our largest turnout thus far & we were so overwhelmed by the support of the parents/siblings/other family members! It was a long parade but our students danced the entire route without a complaint…they were AWESOME!If you wanted to purchase a parade shirt but we ran out of your size, please let us know. If we get enough interest that we reach our minimum of 12, I will order more! Just let Carley or Josie in the dance shop know your size & they will add you to the list.

COSTUME PAYMENTS
Just a reminder that we have begun accepting costume payments in the shop. You can break your total into three installments – October, November & December. This is super helpful for those in multiple classes! The Costume Fee Deadline is DECEMBER 14TH. We will have to charge a late fee of $20/costume after that day. As always, costumes are optional but strongly encouraged. We will have all costumes posted on the large bulletin board through November.

WOW WEEK
WOW week is next week!! We are mixing things up a little this year. Students can earn WOW cards any time through the month for things like: good attitude, work ethic, manners, new skills, etc. They are meant to encourage good behavior, enthusiasm & progress!
We will put a WOW wall up every 3rd week of the month & we hope they will bring their cards for some awesome selfies!!
They should keep all of their cards so they can redeem them at the end of the year during the Student Appreciation Day.

COSTUME PARTY WEEK
It seems crazy to say this but…costume party week is right around the corner! We will be celebrating Halloween in our classes from Thursday -October 25th through Wednesday – October 31st. (yes, we will have classes on Halloween night)
We encourage all to dress in costume although we ask that they can still move & will be comfortable.
We will have little ‘parties’ in each classroom the last 15 minutes of class. If you would like to bring treats, please be mindful of allergies & specifically don’t bring anything with nuts. 😉

THRILLER

Our next ALL STUDIO event is our mall performance of THRILLER!! October 31st – 6:30pm calltime & 7pm performance
We would love for all ages to participate! If interested, please attend both rehearsals: Friday – October 26th: 4:30-6:30pm & Saturday – October 27th: 10am-12pm.
Everyone dresses in their version of zombie attire! It’s always a great time!!

We hope you are staying warm & dry in this chilly fall weather! Bundle up & try to avoid that pesky flu.

Let us know if you have any questions.

Thanks,
Meagen
