All Families Newsletter – September 2017
A message from Stacy
We hope you had a great summer and we are so excited that you will be joining us for our 13th year. Classes start Tuesday, September 5th. We want you to settle into your classes as soon as possible. If you feel you are not in the appropriate class based on skill level, style, instrument, etc., please let us know! As long as there is an opening, we can transfer you to your desired class or add on additional classes if needed. We want to make sure you are in the right class and are enjoying yourself! That is our first priority.
We are always striving to become a better performing arts academy every day and your opinion matters to us. We have a comment box in our lobby at both locations and we do an annual survey in June. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to better serve you!
