Hello Dancers! I hope you had a wonderful break! We have three weeks left before our next break so let’s give it all that we have.
EOC testing begins on Tuesday through the following Friday, Dec. 11. The classes meet at different times and the sequence of classes has been modified. Beginning Tuesday, 4th period will meet during the second period time slot and second period will meet during the fourth period time slot. This goes through the rest of this week.

***For anyone that wants to retake the Ballet Quiz and made a 69 or below, as stated in the syllabus, you have one week to reschedule the taking of the test. Because it is the first graded test this year, I am setting up the time for this Wed. at 2:00. Normally, you would contact your teacher and make arrangements but I will be there at 2:00 if you want to retest. This highest grade you can make is a 70 which would equal a 100 on a regular test. To retake the test, go to CTLS and click, “Reeves’ Supplemental Dance Class***
Monday, Sept. 14: Gold Classes, grab your one question under “what will I learn today” and enter the Go Live class.
