1... 2... 3... years of Carnival fun here at our amazing Advantage Arts Academy!

We are excited to have you on board. We hope to make this the most fun and largest fundraiser event yet!

This year along with all the exciting games; we would like to incorporate a silent auction (so fun). If you or you know of a business who would love the opportunity to donate, participate or market with us please let us know as soon as possible.

Here are some effective ideas for silent auction items:

-Sporting event tickets

-Autographed items

- Concert tickets

-Gift cards (restaurants, stores, online)

- House hold items (airfryers, rumba, decor)

- Health care items ( messages, face masks, manicure or pedicures)

- Electronics (alexas, video doorbells, ipad)

- Family activities (tickets to the zoo, children's museum of art, Thanksgiving point, aquarium)

- Adult evening out (hotel stays, movie passes, Distillery tours)

- Vacation home rentals

The list goes on and on!! Contact us if you have an idea you want to bring to life!

Now you may be asking yourself, what are we raising money for? Well, the school of course, but more importantly the concentration is centered around technology in the classroom. There are audio devices available to enhance all students abilities to hear clearly and concentrate more efficiently. We also want to make a chromebook available for every student.

Strings Ensemble Club

A few things have changed this year, be sure to read through the attachment, but the highlights are:

  • If you're late to pick up your child by 5-10 minutes more than once they'll be asked to leave the club for the year
  • Please make sure your child attends every club (with the exception of sickness) to get the best experience
  • They can borrow books from the school again this year - please make sure they only use pencil when writing in the books (no pens or markers).
  • Practice cards need to be signed by a parent for them to get music money. I don't care how many minutes they practice - only how many days of the week they practice.

The link to pay for the club this year is in the newsletter the principal sends each week, in case you didn't see it or get it, here it is again.

Drama Club
