Welcome Back

October Dates:
3, 17, 24
November Dates:
7, 14, 21

We will continue to have classes on 3 Saturdays of every month.

Tuition payments are due on the 1st class of each month. A $5/week late fee will be added to any payments received after the first class. Tuition is $35/month. All checks are made payable to Maureen King.

Please arrive on time for class. Late comers are a distraction for everyone.

We will have a parents meeting in October. The date will be announced soon.

If for any reason we cannot have 3 classes in a particular month, we will have 4 classes in another month to make up that class.

Parents - Please do not let you children run through the building. We have had a few accidents and a few 'close calls'. We do not want anyone getting hurt.

Please remember - no jeans, skirts or extra-long sweatpants.

If you have questions or concerns, please email me at topyorkies (at) yahoo (dot) com

Note from Deb:
I still have some portraits from the show. If you have not gotten yours, please see me!
