Please be POSITIVE: Ensure any comments regarding students or staff of the school, or other arts educators in town, are uplifting in nature rather than disparaging. Encourage your student to be inclusive of other students and respectful of their instructors. Build self-confidence by allowing your student to take responsibility for their own learning.
Please be CONSIDERATE: Try to be on time when picking up and dropping off your children. Walk them into the lobby to ensure that any communication that needs to occur is done during your student's lesson or class time. Monitor your other children in the school lobbies or courtyard.
We ask that children refrain from RUNNING ON THE BOARDWALKS or playing on the other side of the courtyard during business hours out of consideration for our neighbors.
Please be KIND: Refrain from posting pictures or videos online of other students (apart from your own) without asking permission of their parents. Ensure any public comments made about the school, its students or staff (including on social media) are respectful, truthful and non-specific to any enrolled children. Concerns should be addressed with office staff rather than in the public sphere while enrolled in the school.
Please be ENTHUSIASTIC: Encourage participation and practice from your student. Help them through positive affirmation and by creating space and time for them to focus on their studies.
Please be UNDERSTANDING: We make every effort to ensure a quality music or dance education is offered to your student. You can help by supporting the instructors' decisions with regard to level or class placement, repertoire choice, and instructional methodology.
Communication with Staff: Parents with questions specific to their child's music instruction are invited to speak with music instructors during their child's regularly scheduled music lesson. Parents wishing to direct questions to a dance instructor or group music instructor should email those specific concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org ; all questions regarding scheduling and billing, communications, policies or any other school matter should be directed to the office as well.
