Dear TaVaci Parents-                                                                        October 15, 2016

Here it is! The letter you have all been waiting for!  Read ON, as I am certain there is tons of drama AND comedy. But don’t worry, if you are into mystery novels, I always have plenty of THAT! However, I’m not searching for “reviews” to THIS novel! I’m afraid even IF the reviews were bad, there will still write MORE novels in the future! J

Practice CDS
Each student will receive a Practice CD. We hope your child will listen and sing and listen and sing and listen and SING! The 3rd-6th grade classes (Monday classes) will receive their CD’s along with an “incentive” practice chart. Please encourage them to listen and sing and listen and sing…OK ….you get the idea!

(Tax included)
3-6 Grade (Monday Classes)                                    Pre-2nd Grade (Tuesday Classes)
             Red OR Green mini flashlight $3.00                        NO PROPS this Christmas!!
          White mini flashlights (all kids 3rd-6th) $3.00

         Total……….. $6.36                                                Total….. $ 0!!!

Used Costumes??
Do YOU have a costume that you would like to add to the “pool” of used items for our upcoming used costume drawing? If so…contact me via e mail/ text/ phone/ whatever means you can as SOON as you can! We need to organize, get all names, sizing, etc. documented BEFORE we can make these available!    

Used Costumes Drawing—The drawing for used costumes will be held on Friday (Oct 28th  ) and emails will be sent by TUESDAY- November 1st  !  If you turned a used costume IN for re-sale, the hope is to disperse funds by next week’s classes. Thanks to all of you who turned in your used costumes. This helps MANY!

** You will be notified by e mail as the WINNER of a used costume. Check your e mail Tuesday afternoon (Nov 1st) for the subject line of   Tavaci WINNER. This will mean you are a lucky winner of a used costume—sadly…it’s not FREE---but almost! J It does mean you still get to “pay” . It’s kinda like Ebay! All names will be in the drawing UNLESS you are “dying” to purchase a NEW costume! J

Costumes – All costumes (new or used will be added to your statement which you will receive next week from your child. Your statement will reflect a U skorts, U Red Sparkly. If it does NOT have a “U” before the costume, it will simply say “Skorts, Black Shirt. The prices will be listed at the end of each column. New costume pricing are the following: (tax included)
