FAC Weekly Update

January 10, 2020

Good afternoon, Fine Arts Center Family

Happy New Year! I hope that you and yours had a wonderful Holiday Break. We are back in action at the FAC, as this week marks the beginning of the audition process for our prospective students. Keep in mind that only new students need to audition at the FAC - if your child is a returning student and he/she mistakenly received an email, please disregard. Any questions, please reach out to your child's instructor.


Here is the latest from the halls of the Fine Arts Center...

This Week's Student Leadership Lesson

"You have a choice…you can complain about things you can’t control, or you can control what you can control and let go of what you can’t. You can focus on your problems or focus on getting better. You can look for an excuse or you can look within and find your best.”


- Jon Gordon and Daniel Decker, STAY POSITIVE, page 13

Don't Miss the FAC SnowBall!

The FAC Dance Committee would like to extend an invitation to our students to attend the SnowBall! This first-annual dance will be taking place on Saturday, January 25, from 7-9 pm, and will only cost 10 dollars to attend! The dress code is anything from casual to formal, whatever floats your boat! No permission slip is required for the dance. There will be food, friends, and a LOT of fun. Keep an eye on your email for a Google Form where you can nominate one of your friends for the Snow Court--you can nominate a boy or a girl for the position!


Please keep in mind that this event is for FAC students ONLY. We can’t wait to see you there!
