DRESS REHEARSAL : Will be next Wednesday March 11, all skaters are to be dressed in costume and on the ice for 4:15 pm. We will then begin with the grand finale and work through the program. This will take some time, and we ask that parents be prepared and patient! Preschoolers will practice their routine during their regular lesson time and may leave following the grande finale practice. Following the grande finale practice CanSkaters should be seated with their group on the bleachers until it is their turn to practice their routine then they may go.
COSTUMES: Your child will need their costume for dress rehearsal, as well as carnival day.

Carnival Volunteers Needed
Our carnival is run completely by volunteers and your help is greatly needed. The following is a list of positions which need to be filled for this year’s production:
Set-up: Sunday morning beginning at 10 am we need 12 people to set up the backdrop, lights and decorations *Dress warm as you will be out on the ice. *Only children 12 years and older are allowed on the ice during set-up
Clean-up: We need 12 people to take down backdrop and decorations immediately following carnival
Group Parents: Once the coaches have assigned the skaters into groups for carnival we will need a group parent to sit with each Canskate group during carnival and dress rehearsal.
Thank you everyone in advance for any help you can give us with our carnival. It is such a fun day for the children and to see their smiles makes all the work worthwhile!!
