We hope you are all off to great start as the school year begins! We are praying your kiddos wellness, success in learning, and joy this year. We can't wait for classes to also begin at Studio J PAC the week of September 8. Here's what's up this week...
Enrollment 2021/2022 - You should have received class confirmations last week (unless newly enrolled). Let us know right away if you need us to make any changes. We will continue working through our waitlists and will inform you of spots as they open - be sure your contact info is current. You may also want to be sure you have a current card on file - auto payments will begin on September 15, and will run on the 5th of every month thereafter.
Open House - This is a come-and-go event - join us on your scheduled day between 5:00-8:00pm to meet the teachers, have shoe fittings, and purchase your class attire! (You will need to have your student with you to purchase shoes as sizing is not standard.) Here is the link to Studio J dress code:
The Open House schedule is as follows:
Aug 23 (Mon) 5:00-8:00pm - Student's last name beginning with A-D

Epic Learning Fund - Studio J continues to be an Epic Vendor, however there have been significant changes to the process. Epic is implementing a new system and there will be a short lapse in their ability to approve and pay for services. If you plan to use Epic Learning Funds for Studio J classes, you must complete this Google form and then await confirmation by email on when Epic payments will go into affect. Please be aware, parents are responsible for all payments prior to approval, and following the depletion of Epic funds. You are also responsible for paying your monthly performance fee, so you must have a current card on file for auto pay. Here is the link to the form: https://forms.gle/LGrHCg8mSRPDUpT89
Band App - In order to receive updates, critical info specific to your student's class, and direct communication from your instructor including pics and video, we urge all of our parents and older students to use the Band App. Please start watching for your email invitations to join your specific classes. You will need to have downloaded the Band App on your device prior to accepting the invitation. Here are the links to get the app:
