Dance Team News

REDS Dance Team (1st and 2nd Grade) January Practice Dates: Jan. 15, 22, 29


Redhawk Dance Team (3-5 grade) January Practice Dates: Jan. 18, 25


Change in Drop Off Location for Dance:

Due to the number of students that the dance teams and choirs have this year, we are changing the morning practice drop off location for dance. We will now have drop off in the back by our bus loading zone by the gym from 7:50-8am. Either Miss Devereaux or Mrs. Patel will be at the gym door at that time to let dancers in. For the safety of your children, please do not drop off students unless the door is opened and you see one of us. It would be unsafe to drop your students without a dance teacher present. This means no early drop-offs and the door will be closing at 8:00 am for practice to begin. The gym door is for dance team members only. Choir students enter through the door closest to the Art Room when Mr. Stabe is present.
