STUDENT FILES: each family at the studio has their own file for newsletters and any other studio correspondence. Please check your student files regularly.

COMPETITIVE INFORMATION BINDER: a binder will be placed in the lobby with a copy of each email distributed by the studio. Please consult this Binder if you are not sure if you have received an email, or need to confirm any information.

EMAIL: will be used to communicate with parents and senior students. Please make sure the studio has a valid email address on file!
