Winter Newsletter 2016

Welcome back! I hope everyone had a relaxing Christmas break and is refreshed and ready for a new semester of lessons!

Pancake Party!

Our 3rd Annual Pancake Party and Recital will be held on March 12th, from 10:00 am -12:00 pm. Students are encouraged to wear their pyjamas, bring some stuffies and pillows, and have a piece ready to perform. We start the party with a casual recital, and then finish up with some delicious pancakes and board games! It has been a great success in previous years, and is something I really look forward to. While this party is for students only, I will be asking for some parent volunteers to help chaperone the madness, closer to the date.

No Lessons: Wednesday February 17th, Friday February 19th. I will make up these lessons over Spring Break.

Kiwanis Festival

Deadline: February 15th, 2016

Students wishing to compete in the Kiwanis Festival may register online at kelownakiwanisfestival.com. Students doing exams this June are especially encouraged to compete, as it is an extra performance/feedback opportunity.

Exams

Students doing exams this June need to register online by March 1st, 2016. If you are not sure if you are doing an exam, please come and speak to me! More information is available at rcmexaminations.org.

What’s going on??

As some of you may have noticed, my physical appearance has expanded lately – and it’s not just because I ate a lot over Christmas break! I am expecting another child on June 30th! This will (hopefully) not affect lessons in any way, and lessons will continue as scheduled until June 24th. Should there be any complications, I will make up those lessons in September, as I am planning on returning to teaching full time on October 1st, 2016. Thank you for your understanding!
