CANDLE FUNDRAISER
 
The candle fundraiser will begin September 16 and run through October 10. All monies will need to be turned in at that time. These proceeds will go towards their costume fees for June. This is an opportunity for parents to cut the costs of costumes and sell candles that are perfect as gifts or an everyday occasion. We've sold these candles for the past five years and they smell great and sell themselves. Good Luck and Happy Selling!

This fundraiser runs throughout the year and is a great way to purchase your groceries and receive 10% back towards your costumes. Let your friends in on the great food too! We're very excited to tell you about our new Referral Program? "Word of Mom" is one of the most effective ways to encourage others to try Market Day and reward our loyal customers too!

This is Halloween week and all students will be allowed to wear a Halloween Costume during class. However, please make sure that the costume will not impede upon the student's movement during class, unless they are willing to take it off for class itself. Also, no masks will be allowed during class. Have a Happy Halloween!!!

BRING A FRIEND

Thanks to everyone who brought a friend to class in September. Those friends who registered for classes will receive one free recital costume as well as you too (up to $50 value). So congratulations and keep spreading the word about our great academy!
