February 2020


Dear Parents and Students,

February is already here! Students are getting excited with the preparation of our annual June performance.  Costume balances are currently due. Each family will receive an email with your balance due at the beginning of February.  If your child is in more than one class and you would like an itemization of each costume, please contact Miss Heather.

*Please make costume checks payable to “Karrie Mason” (*NO CREDIT CARDS accepted for costume balances – cash or check only).

Costumes run in small, medium, large and extra-large sizes. They are not made to exact measurements but are ordered carefully according to each costume company’s sizing chart. Please keep in mind that many costumes may need slight alterations.  Once costumes are paid in full students will receive them upon arrival. It is very important to hang your costumes in a safe place until Picture Day then again until Dress Rehearsal. Please do not wear your costumes prior to then. All costumes are non-refundable and unable to be replaced.
