2021-22 Royals Dance Team Sign-up

Prospective Burnet Royal Parent,

The Burnet Royals is a dance team for 2nd-4th graders. Please be aware that a student's grades must be passing, I will be looking at behavior/referrals, and I will also be looking at absences. There are a limited number of spots and it is a first come, first serve basis after taking those three requirements into consideration. If your child has made the team they will be notified before school is over. No transportation will be provided for any performance or practices so please take that into consideration. You MUST participate in fundraising events. The one thing I will ask you to purchase is jazz shoes but all other costs will be alleviated through fundraising. Please understand I do all contact through ClassDojo so you must have it. If you choose not to use ClassDojo please do not sign up. If you are interested please fill out the following by Friday, May 20th, 2021.

Thank you,

Ms. Silva

Royals Director
