Local Updates for Feb 5, 2014 - Closings once again due to this wacky weather

Once again the weather is wreaking havoc on my schedule and that of my friends and local business partners.  School was closed again today due the the ice and snow from last night and below zero wind chills again today.  Living in a town that Rarely closes school, even when all the surrounding towns are closed, is hard on the kids many years when friends are out of school due to snow but they are still in class.
This year is completely opposite for my kiddos.  The extreme cold has closed our schools for 6 days now (I think) since January 6th.  That is more closures than I believe our schools have had since
my son started Kindergarten 7 years ago!

Add to that, that we all have cabin fever (including poor Daisy - our dog).

Now for some local updates - due to weather and school closings . . .

NO CLASSES today for Inspired Arts Academy - February 5th due to extreme weather conditions…Make ups in May! West Coast swing make- up , to be determined:)

Make up CLasses, Performance change- Due to the large amount of classes being cancelled in January , we as a company have decided to extend our Monday and Tuesday classes, and into the first and second weeks of May. Further, we NEED to change the BROADWAY show (involving Broadway acting, dancers, singers) to May 8th, 9th and 10th. We do hope this does not cause any inconveniences, but we want to be sure you children have adequate time to perfect their lines, routines and songs. We will steer clear of any Mother’s Day activities as much as possible. Mark your calendars!!

Don't worry though, DROP this Friday is still on!  This is a great way for the kiddos to run off some energy and have a ton of fun while Mom and Dad go do whatever they want, kidless!

Toy Story theme this week and a bounce house!!! Come join Jessica and her team from 6-9pm for a party your child won’t forget! You get a night out, your child gets a night in!!! ALL children aged 3-12 welcome!!
