Kidchella Mandatory Meeting

Monday, January 22 at 6:30 p.m. in the Auditorium

 Sign ups produced 118 eligible registrants!  The list is now with Burbank Music Academy for processing.  We do not have final confirmation as to how many of the registrants will be able to participate in Kidchella, but we believe that most will.  Confirmation should be going out from BMA sometime next week.   There is a MANDATORY meeting with Burbank Music Academy this Monday evening,  January 22, at 6:30 p.m. in the Colfax Auditorium. Please be sure to attend.  Under BMA policy, non-attendance can be cause for removal from the registration list.

And just a friendly reminder - this is a parent-volunteer driven event.  Participating parents must volunteer at Kidchella.  Failure to do so will be cause for denying your child registration in next year's event.  Thank you for your cooperation!

We hope to see you there and know that this will be an OUTSTANDING and FUN event!

Themes are endless - fitness/sports related (Think Amazing Race); ladies spa night, activities for kids, food experiences or even lessons - the sky's the limit!  So if you have a skill or passion or just love to throw a great party, perhaps you will consider hosting one!  Email ericalong@mac.com with your ideas.
