Friendly Reminder: Dress Code+No Running Tomorrow Due to High Weather Temperatures

RIS Dancers & Parents/Guardians!

First, I would like to say how extremely blessed and grateful the dancers and I are for those who have donated items to our classroom and to our Dance Dollar Store! 
The Dance Dollar Reward System is to encourage motivation. Students have various chances to earn Dance Dollars weekly and can use Dance Dollars to buy prizes from our class store which will open tomorrow! Those who purchased items off the Amazon Wishlist and had them shipped to your address, please have your dancers drop them off at the front office before 1st period, so I can collect them before class starts.
 
After settling in the last few weeks, the dancers and I have realized there are a few more classroom supplies donations that would be greatly appreciated!  Here are the Amazon Wishlists I sent out a few weeks ago where you can purchase the items (or get an idea of what is needed):
*These Amazon Wishlists will only show unpurchased items and has RIS’ address preset for shipping.
 
Second, no running tomorrow due to high weather temperatures. Everyone must be in the dance room by the time the tardy bell rings. Also, tomorrow is the first day the Dance Dollar Store will open! You will get to choose whether to save your dance dollars for a larger prize or use them on a smaller prize. 
 
Third, as I am updating Aeries today, I wanted to give a friendly reminder about the dress code.
 
Dance Attire (Dress Code)—label all of your clothes and belongings with a permanent marker!
  • RIS PE Shorts (or solid colored leggings—no patterns)
    • I understand it has been hot and leggings are not as appealing to wear outside, but remember that our classroom has AC and you are only outside in leggings for 7 minutes max.
    • In addition, if you are to wear shorts they must be the RIS PE Shorts. Short running shorts or spandex shorts are not allowed.
  • RIS PE Shirt (or a plain Gray or Black T-shirt—must fully cover stomach and have no large graphics or logos)
  • Dance Shoes (either jazz or ballet shoes are acceptable; you do not need both)
  • Running Shoes for Run Days (NO FILA’s, Converse, Vans, etc.)
  • Hair is secured up and back in either a single ponytail, single braid, or bun with no loose front pieces.
    • If your hair cannot be secured by a hair tie, then you must use a headband, hair clips, or bobby pins to secure your hair away from your face
Where to Buy Dance Attire/Shoes—recommended brands: Sansha, Capezio, Bloch.
  • Expressly Motion Dancewear—(310) 378-2204
    A local business that provides various high-quality products such as dance shoes and dance attire. 
  • Discount Dance Supply—https://www.discountdance.com/
    An online dance shop with various products, affordable prices, fast shipping, and non-contact friendly. 
Your dance attire/class materials were due by Sep 2nd and there were plenty of reminders of this. Part of your daily participation points is adhering to the dress code. By not adhering to the dress code, there will be a partial loss of daily participation points (this applies to all PE classes). Those whose parents have emailed me about your dance attire/class materials not being delivered just yet will not be penalized as shipping delays are out of your control. 
 
Remember that one of our student expectations is to practice accountability and responsibility this year by coming to class prepared and communicating with the teacher about extenuating circumstances. Everyone has done a great job so far, but I want to put this reminder out to help keep us in good habits from the beginning!
 
Hope everyone has been able to stay cool this weekend, I will see you dancers tomorrow and all the parents/guardians Thursday evening!
 

Thanks!
