~We have just received some extra DvD copies of last school year's dance concerts (2016) and this school year's winter dance concert. Please let me know if you are in need of a copy. The cost is $10. For this year's concert, we will be sending home an order form in the event that you would like a copy of your child's performance. Please keep your eye out for this important form. Order forms will also be available on concert day. The copies will be ready during exam week for pickup.
~Please do not forget that fairshare and candy money is due. Students were sent home with an index card last month with their total balance.
~Thursday, April 20th: Help the dance department complete posters promoting the upcoming dance concerts (this is optional)! Any interested dance students can join us in room 1209 on South campus.

Unfortunately, I just found out that there was a major conflict for the original dates, so your child may have a different date written down in their notes; these are the corrected dates. Please let me know if you have a prior engagement already for these dates as soon as possible.
