Makeup FormsHello everyone,Here is the makeup form. It is due Friday, November 18! Please make checks out to Melrose Area Schools. Remember to read the form carefully. Not everything is required. If you bought the makeup last year, you do not need to repurchase. This is the easiest route to make sure that everyone has the same colors for performances. We will be teaching the team how to use the makeup that is bought. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks!P.S. Parent Panel meeting on Monday, November 21 at 6:15 in my classroom (J109) for any dance parent that is interested in getting involved this season!
