Monthly Newsletter – October 2019
We hope your child has settled in to his/her class(es) by now, but most importantly we hope they are enjoying them! Our biggest priority is that your child is finding value and learning in class, but having fun at the same time! Being a part of APA, we want your child to experience MORE than just great arts education. We don’t just teach kids to be great at the arts, we teach the arts to make great kids! Happy October!
Kringle Fundraiser: Order form is due Tuesday, October 1st. Franklin Pick Up – Thursday, October 17th 3pm-6pm and Oak Creek Pick up – Friday, October 18th 3pm-6pm. You must pick up from the location where you turned in your order form. Anyone that does not show up within the pickup times will be charged $10 to their account on file. If you do not pick up your food that night, your frozen food will not be good as we do not have a freezer on the premises. Profits from the fundraiser will be in your individual family account before October 15th.
Yard Sign Contest: This continues through the month of October! Grab a yard sign from the lobby at either location and place it in your yard. If we spot your house you could be our next tuition credit winner. During the month of October if you’re our lucky winner you’ll receive a $50 tuition credit!

Kindness Counts: One of our core company values is being kind. This year if our staff spots someone performing an act of kindness, we will hand out a small gift. This is our way of saying thank you for being a great example for others in the studio!
Text Messaging: In order to better relay important information to you, specifically for weather-related emergencies, please opt-in to receive text messages. You’ll also be the first to know about events and special offers! Text ACADEMY to 77948 to join now.
Referral Program: Share us with a friend. When a new family registers and mentions your name, you will EACH receive a $50 tuition credit. (Credit given after 2 months enrolled and there is no limit to the number of families referred!)
Logo Wear for Sale: You can place orders from our online store from the 1st-10th of each month. We do not have these items available at the studio.

Winter MUSIC Recital: Students will start to select their music selections for our optional Winter Recital, which is open to students at both locations. If you have specific music you would like to perform, please notify your teacher. Our Winter Music Recital will be held at the Oak Creek Salvation Army on Sunday, December 15th. This is free for students to perform in and there is no fee for guests to attend. Feel free to invite any family and/or friends to these events. We will email out more details closer to the show.

DANCE SHOWCASE INFORMATION BELOW ——
2019 Winter Showcase Times: One thing our students look forward to every year is our dance Showcases! All of our classes perform on stage with their current dance class and will learn the routine during their scheduled dance class. Our Showcases are set for Saturday, December 14th at the South Milwaukee High School PAC. Our shows will be approx. one hour in length. We will be teaching our Winter dances starting at the end of October/beginning of November in class. Every class will have their own dance and costume and only perform in one show unless you are on a performance team.
Click HERE to view all class expectations and how many dances each combo class will perform in each Showcase.
SIBLINGS IN DIFFERENT SHOWCASE TIMES: Please remember it is very hard for us to get siblings to perform together. We run an enrollment report from families that register prior to June 15th and try to prioritize in the order that you register. If siblings perform in different shows, we will put a credit in your APA account for a value of 4 REGULAR tickets to deduct off your 12/15 tuition payment. If your students are not scheduled in the same Showcase, please email us at [email protected] with your students’ names. Because of South Milwaukee’s online ticket sales, we do not have capability to give free tickets on their site. You will still need to purchase these tickets on your own through South Milwaukee PAC.
