We will be having two separate recital times, 1:00pm and 3:30pm. Everyone should now be signed up for a recital time, if you haven’t done so yet please contact me asap!! **Please remember – all students must be dressed in costume to match their song for the Halloween Recital!!

Reminders: We DO have lessons on all Monday holidays – this also includes school inservice days Monday 10/17 and Tuesday 10/18.
