WAYPOINT TREE:  We have once again partnered with Waypoint to collect gifts for women and children experiencing homelessness, poverty and/or are the victims of domestic violence.  If you wish to participate simply choose a tag from the tree, purchase the item listed and turn the unwrapped gift in to the front desk in exchange for a small token of our appreciation.  All donations must be turned in by 9 pm on Thursday 12/5.  Thank you for your generosity. 
TAYLOR & TYLERS CLOTHING DRIVE:  Extreme team member Taylor Johnson and front desk staff Tyler Anderson are working together on a project for school through IowaBIG, collecting donations of winter clothing for a pop up clothing closet for the homeless. We will have a collection box at the studio until Dec 9th for you to donate. There is a bigger need for adult items, coats, mittens/gloves, hats, scarves, pants, warm socks, undergarments, etc.. 
ILLNESS:  I’m always saying how good attendance is imperative to good progress, and I do wholeheartedly believe that to be true.  However, as we approach the winter season and undoubtedly the season of sickness, I feel that I need to add an amendment.  A child that does not feel good enough to fully participate in class is not going to get that much out of class.  In the best interest of all of our students, we ask that sick children be kept at home to rest and recover instead of coming and watching class and in the process exposing the rest of the class to their illness.   Please keep children home until they are 24 hours free of fever, vomiting and diarrhea.  In addition, please remeind your dancers not to share water bottles and to always practice good hand washing. 
    
EDA EXPOSE:  Our competition teams will be showcasing their new competition routines at the EDA Expose, Saturday Feb 22nd at 10 am.  Tickets are $5 each and will be available from any competition team dancer, at the front desk or at the door the day of the show.   
SHOWCASE:  Our showcase dates have been confirmed.  Mandatory dress rehearsal will be on Friday 5/15 with a 6 pm show on Sat. 5/16 and a 2 pm show on Sun. 5/17.  Showcase 2020 will held at Coe College in their Sinclair Auditorium.
Thanks for reading!!  Best wishes to you for a wonderful & blessed holiday season!
