New Schedule for Fall 2010

WOW! We have really had an exciting number of returning and brand new girls interested in joining Girls of Grace this year! This has created a wonderful dilema - where to put everyone??? If you noticed, on our web site we have changed a few class times for the fall. The new class schedule will accomodate most everyone - though our preschool classes have a waiting list at this time. After much prayer we have moved our oldest young ladies to Sunday afternoon. This was not an easy choice - because we believe in keeping the Lord's day set apart for worship of Him. We do feel that Girls of Grace does honor and praise the Lord on His day and so we are excited about this new quiet afternoon time with our oldest class!
Our kinder class was our largest group - with 19 registered kindergarteners!! We have split this class into 10 and 9 - you have received an email informing you what your new class time is and whether you are in kinder A or B. Thank you SO much for your PATIENCE and UNDERSTANDING as we try to include all who want to be a part of Girls of Grace. The new class schedule is as follows:

Sunday afternoon 5-6pm 3rd-6th grade
Monday afternoon 12:45-1:30 3 year olds
1:45-2:30 4 year olds
3:45-4:30 Kinder A
4:45-5:30 Kinder B
5:45-6:45 1st-2nd grade

Getting ready for another year!!

We are so excited to begin another year with our Girls of Grace! So far we have many new faces signing up that we can't wait to meet as well as our familiar faces we can't wait to see again!
If you haven't emailed us to receive your registration form please do so. Our classes are filling up FAST this year!

We are continuing our Monday class day - we received great feedback of this day in your family schedules and felt it worked well last year.

One thing you may notice that is different - we are adding a 5th class for kindergarten students only. It is a 45 minute class right after school beginning at 3:45. We have noticed in previous years that our kindergarten group is trying to adjust to their new school schedule and one hour is sometimes just too much for them after a long day at school. We want our kindergarten moms to know you are welcome to bring your daughters straight to the studio where they can get dressed and have a snack with us beginning around 3:30. We are hoping this serves your kindergartener well this year.

Looking forward to a great year!!!

The Love Month

We are excited about the love month of February. Not only are we beginning to learn our recital routines - we are also focusing on how God shows His love for us which in turn helps us show our love to others. Each week we are asking the question to each group - "How have you seen God's love today?" We encourage you to ask that question as well to your Girls of Grace this month!
We are thankful for the opportunity to serve your family!
Happy Love Month!
Sarah and Mandy

Costume Time!

It is costume time!!! I can't believe it either - but with our pictures and Christmas performance around the corner - the costumes are already being made!!! We have already gotten tutu measurements and will be sizing the girls this month for their leotards. For all of our new Girls of Grace - this is a one time costume payment of $65. This includes all pieces worn at both the Christmas performance and Spring Show. Leotard, tutu, tights, hair pieces, tap and drill skirts - we do our very best to make the most of your money and make it stretch! You can make your costume payment anytime throughout the month of October. Can't wait to see these Girls of Grace in their new tutus!!!!
