SWEATER & BRA DISCOUNTS
Brrr, its getting chilly outside and we have a new line of shrugs and sweater wraps this year for our dancers. They come in both child and adult sizes, in pink or black. During the month of October these will be 15% off. We will also have our bras 15% off. Stop by the office anytime in October to place an order.
We are doing another food drive this year for the Mount Horeb Food Pantry. We want to deliver on Monday November 14th so families can have items for Thanksgiving. Last year we donated 10 paper bags/124 pounds of nonperishable food items. This year we want to donate more and to achieve this goal we need your help! We will have boxes in the hall to drop your goods off starting now until we deliver. Thanks for your help in advance!!!
PARENT INFORMATION MEETING
We will be holding an informational meeting for all Forte Families. We will discuss our studio policies, volunteer policies, the end of the year programs and any other questions that may arise. We strongly recommend attending if you are new to Forte. For your convenience, we are offering 2 different times to choose from. Meetings will be held on Thursday October 20th @ 8:00 & Thursday November 3rd @ 8:00. (No need to come to both.) We want this year to be a great experience for everyone and believe that this meeting will help cut down on confusion in preparing for our end of year performances as well as other issues that may come up throughout the season.
COSTUMES FOR OUR END OF YEAR SHOW FOR SINGERS & DANCERS (Does not include Boogie Babies, Private & Semi-Private Voice Students or Actors)
Our end of year show for Singers and Dancers is a big production held at Mt. Horeb High School in May. Students are not required to participate, but participation is strongly encouraged. This is a great reward for 9 months of training! Please plan ahead! We will start measuring for costumes in late November. If your child will not be in the end of the year show please contact us so you do not get charged. Costume fees will show up on your Quarter 2 statement, but are not due until December 15th @ 8PM. Each class will need a costume. Prices range from $50-$55. (ex. If your child takes 1 dance class & 1 group voice class, he/she will need 2 costumes. Combo classes will only need 1 costume.) Costumes are ordered over Holiday Break. Only paid for costumes will be ordered. Thank you for understanding.
