Notice to Monday PS/K Classes
Posted in General at 2:47 PM on May 3, 2011

Dear Parents,

It’s hard to believe that recital is just a little more than a month away.

Since both of my Monday pre-school/kindergarten classes will be dancing together for their performance, I would like to have the kids practice together so that they are comfortable with each other.

The dates I have chosen for these practices are:
May 9
May 16
May 23
June 6

I would like my 5:45-6:45 class to stay an extra 15 minutes (until 7:00pm). And I would like my 6:45-7:45 class to come 15 minutes earlier (at 6:30pm). This will give us 30 minutes each time to focus on our recital pieces.

There will be no charge for the extra time.

Thanks!

Lisa
