Here we go!! We are (so close to) ready and (super) excited to start this new dance year! Lots of repeat info from the August newsletter. But, please take a look through it all just to make sure … ALL CLASSES AND TEAMS BEGIN THIS WEEK: Age group teams, Lift Teams, Tech Classes, Semi-Privates. • TEAM LISTS: The great team re-mix is almost done. We just have a couple more changes to make to have all the lists settled. Thanks for your patience and willingness to make changes when needed. Team lists will be sent to each age group in a separate message. • FIRST CLASS & PARENT MEETINGS: We are looking forward to seeing you at the Parent Meetings this week! Here is a reminder of the schedule. Note 1: there are two time changes to avoid two parent meetings at the same time (Pre-Jr Thurs & Sr. Black).
