Dear TaVaci Parents,

November is fast approaching! It's hard to believe that at the beginning of NEXT-NEXT month we will be rehearsing/performing our annual Christmas Concert! I'm sure you have all calendared for this wonderful event! BUT for those of you NEW to our website... It's December 8th  (Saturday) at 3:00. It's held at the beautiful Blackfoot Performing Arts Center!  We fully expect your Christmas season to be OPENED with festive smiles! 


Pictures for Media Presentation! MONDAY and TUESDAY—NEXT WEEK! Nov. 5th and 6th
We will be taking pictures of your kiddos for our annual media presentation. You read that right! Just bring your kiddos to class.. normal clothes..but please wear/bring coats, hats, etc. We are doing something a tad different this year but are excited for the fun! AND...it will save you the extra time of travel and scheduling, etc! SO...THIS next Monday and Tuesday we will be taking OUTSIDE shots of the kids at the following times:





Monday... 3:45-4:45 CLASS--Come at the usual time! We will KEEP these kids for about 15 additional minutes so they can be picked up around 5:00. Make sure they have coats/jackets/ etc. as they will be a quick pic outside!

Monday...5:00-6:00 CLASS-- PLEASE come at (or really close to) 4:30  We will take the girls pictures BEFORE the 1st class gets OUT of class. Then..they will attend their normal class. IF there is a time change for the END of class, I will let you know! Who knows? They may start their class a tad early! BUT...plan on the normal release time of 6:00...JUST in case! 

Tuesday 3:30-4:15 CLASS-- Come to class at the regular time..we will need 15 more minutes with them! They can be picked up at 4:30!

Tuesday 4:30-5:15 CLASS--Please come at 4:15. We may start this class only a few minutes late, but will end at the normal time of 5:15.

THANKS to ALL! See you on Nov. 5th and Nov. 6th !





Performance!! Dec 1st
We are honored and PLEASED to once again be invited to the Bannock County Historical Museum to perform.! Out performance for this event is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 1st. We would like for your children to arrive at 11:40 to be ready to perform at 12:00. The museum has ALWAYS provided a lovely "spread" of goodies for us for attending this GREAT place. I am amazed every time I go there! They take care of TaVaci! All students will perform and please wear your costumes! Recognize any of those folks??



Props for Dec 2018
This year...the LITTLES (meaning Tuesday’s classes) have either ONE or TWO props! The TINY TUNES (3:30-4:15 class) have a PUPPY and a TAMBOURINE. The Minors Class (Tuesday 4:30-5:15) has ONE prop…a Tambourine.




The Monday classes also have props. They will be using Fidget Spinner, Reindeer Nose,  Red Santa Hat, Beard, AND they will need a baseball-ish type cap (YOU BRING) …WHEW!
Baseball cap!! Please bring a baseball cap (the more color the BETTER…but ANY will do!) If you don’t put your name on the inside of it, we will. We would LIKE for them to be brought to class NEXT week AND leave them. I will bring them to rehearsal AND concert and they may take them home on concert night
    

      




Cost for Props - Monday Classes- $17.00 (tax included)
Cost for Props – Tuesday Class- $20.00 (3:30 Class) $10.00 (4:30 Class)

Costumes!
We are THRILLED and excited that the GIRLS (all classes) have a new (and I might add) ADORABLE costume this year! AND…drum roll please….. they are SIMPLE! AND… the ONLY thing you will need  to provide on your own ( UNLESS you let me know you need some help) is:
Black Leggings!
AND…we DO recommend a black modbe underneath .
Here is the OLDER Girls FUN shirt ($32.00)
Younger model… but you get the idea! Girls will wear solid black leggings


Here is the YOUNGER Girls FUN Shirt ($32.00)
Girls will wear solid black leggings
  



The older girls (Monday Classes) will have an adorable gold shirt to wear with black leggings ( YOU purchase the leggings on your own) The younger girls ALSO have an adorable RED shirt (YOU purchase black leggings on your own)

 AND…Heads UP REMINDER! NO costumes will go out unless accounts are paid and current. Thanks for helping us with this!
