April Happenings

Hi everyone! Welcome Spring…I mean, Hi Again, Winter.  Hahahaha!  At least we know that we are through Fool’s Spring & almost through Second Winter.  Then we only have one more Winter before official Spring.  YAY!! 😉

EMAILS
We have discovered that quite a few families weren’t getting our emails.  In the new software, if you checked ‘unsubscribe to email blasts’ then you weren’t getting all of the important info.  Hopefully we have fixed the problem.  Let me know if you would like to get all of the emails that were sent in previous months.  

RECOMMENDATIONS
You will be seeing recommendations arrive in the mail in the next week or so.  These are always so exciting for the kids!  Many aspects are taken into consideration when teachers decide on placement: abilities, attendance, attitude, focus, etc. Please let me know if you have any questions regarding the recommendations for next fall. 

CLASS LEVELS
We will be changing our class levels next year.  We have found that the current description of levels is confusing so we will be changing to a number system.  The current levels & new levels are as follows:

Junior/Beginning = Level 1
Pre-Apprentice = Level 2
Apprentice = Level 3
Senior = Level 4 

COSTUMES
If your costume still hasn’t arrived & you are wanting to get pictures, please let me know.  I will be emailing classes so that we can figure out a borrow situation so you can still be a part of the photo week. 🙂  

RECITAL OPENING
We are planning to open our recital this year with a fun slide show & we need your help!  Because the theme is ‘Road Trip!’ we would love to collect as many road trip photos as possible.  Please send us pictures of your student &/or your family traveling.  It will be so fun to see your photo on the big screen!! RECITAL REMINDERS

  • Photos: Photo week is April 29th-May 3rd.  Please register online for your photo packet.  It’s an easy process through the parent portal. 🙂 The picture schedule will be sent out the week before but plan to be at the studio during your usual class time.  If you aren’t getting photos, you won’t have class that week. 
  • Tickets: Tickets will go on sale through TutuTix on May 1st at 12pm.  We tend to sell out so get your tickets before they are gone. 
  • Best Of:  Our Best Of Show will be on Saturday – June 22nd.  We will announce the Best Of Show lineup before tickets go on sale. 

MEMORIAL DAY
We WILL NOT have class on Memorial Day! 🙂  

FINALE
We are opening our finale performance up to any students 6yrs or older that want to participate!  It’s super fun!!  You will need to attend a rehearsal on Saturday – June 1st from 10am-12pm.  During recital week, you will perform your class number & then stay backstage until the finale performance.  You will wear the same costume that you have for your class performance.  We hope to see you at rehearsal! 

STUDENT APPRECIATION DAY
DATE CHANGE!! We are moving our annual Student Appreciation Day to June 8th.  We originally scheduled it on June 1st so make sure to change your calendars!  This year we will be having a ‘Sock Hop’ theme so start planning your costume now!  Poodle skirts, saddle shoes, leather jackets, OH MY!  

THANKS for reading this all the way through!!  I know its A LOT but it’s that crazy time of year.  Please let me know if you have any questions.
