A question from a mom about sweatpants -why don't we have them yet? Here is what I said:

Now, with the sweatpants - we needed more people to order them to get them at that price. We were all trying to round up more students to get enough to run the order. Since that failed, our new plan is to design a new pair of sweat pants and get them from our usualy printer which should be cheaper. If the students who have already ordered sweatpants don't like the new design or if you want your money back now I just need to fill out a form for the secretary and she will write you a cheque. If she likes them she will get a cheque for the difference. Sorry for the delay - I really want them too!! I am just waiting on a design right now. Thanks for the e-mail!! Have a great day!! I should put this info on the blog too.. for other parents!! THANKS AGAIN!! See you tonight!!

Harbour Dance Field Trip - Forms available FRIDAY!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Each semester I take 23 students to dance at Harbour Dance Centre downtown Vancouver. This is an awesome opportunity for dancers to learn new styles and choreography from new teachers. Thanks to the Surrey Dance Teachers’ Association, the cost to students is $25. (Last year it was $20 but the Surrey Dance Teacher Association paid the GST and transportation.)

This field trip takes place on Monday, November 9, 2009. We leave Frank Hurt on a school bus at 11:20am and we return on a school bus at 5pm. We will have an hour to eat after we dance. Please bring money for food. There are many choices: pizza, sushi, McDonalds, Burger King, pitas. Please bring comfortable clothes to dance in and water.

All students from dance classes and teams are invited on this field trip. The first 23 students who get their parent/ teacher permission forms and money in will be the 23 students I take on the trip.

Happy Dancing!
