Christmas Donation: Since we didn’t have the last class in December before Christmas, I will still be taking the Christmas Donation if anyone wants to hand a donation in this week. Just a reminder: This year our donation is going to Bringing Hope Home. Bringing Hope Home is a non-profit organization that emotionally and financially supports families battling cancer in the Greater Philadelphia Area. The organization was started by Paul Insenberg in honor of his late wife Nicole. For more information visit their website www.bringinghopehome.org. We would like to Adopt-A-Family form this organization this year. Our donations will help pay their gas and electric bills or fill up their oil tank so that they can heat their home this winter. If you would like to make a donation that would be great. Please put your donation in a sealed envelope marked Christmas Donation. This is totally voluntary, not mandatory. Thank you in advance.

January Payment – The final payment is now due - $200 for one student; $300 for two or more. Checks can be made payable to Coyle School of Irish Dance. If paying by cash, please have the fee in an envelope with your family name on the outside. Please bring to class or mail directly to me – 1617 Dogwood Road, Flourtown, PA 19031.
Adult Class – Class will begin on Thursday, January 5. Class time will be 7:30pm – 8:30pm. The fee for the 8 week session will be $145 per person. Please contact me if you are interested in attending.
All students MUST have the proper shoes for class beginning in January. Beginner students should have the little black/pink/white ballet slippers with the elastic across the arch. It is very important for them to wear the proper shoes so that I cannot see their proper foot technique. If they are wearing sneakers I am unable to see this. If this is your child’s second year of Irish dance lessons, the proper soft shoes are required. Contact/or try Fays shoes – http://www.fayshoes.com/products_shoes.htm
Cold weather – Please make sure that each student has the proper clothing for dance class. Jeans are not acceptable for class. Please have them wear leggings or shorts under their sweatpants. Thank you for your cooperation.
Looking ahead to 2017:

~Sunday, March 12 – Philadelphia St Patrick’s Day Parade, Philadelphia.http://www.philadelphiastpatsparade.com/
Super Bowl Pool – As soon as we know who will be in the Super Bowl more information to follow! Makes watching the game (beside watching the commercials) all that more fun!
World’s Fundraiser – this year we have 6 dancers representing the Coyle School at the World Championships being held in Dublin over Easter Week. We will be holding a fundraiser for these dancers at Maggie’s Waterfront - https://www.maggieswaterfront.com. The date is Sunday, April 2, 2016 from 1pm – 5pm. More information to follow.
Coyle School Costume: If your daughter needs a costume for the parades, please check our Facebook page designated just for selling school dresses. If you are not a member of this page, please contact me via email and I will send you an invitation to join. If you cannot find a dress, contact the dressmaker directly. She is also making Beginner Jumpers. Her name is Maria Aspite and her email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please so not wait to contact her. She will need time to make the dress before St Patrick’s Day and we are not her only client.
Inclement Weather – for weekday classes, if schools are closed or have early dismissal, there will be no classes held that night. For Saturday classes, I will (1) send an email by 8:15am, (2) post a message on the Coyle School of Irish Dance – PA & NJ’s Facebook page. Please Note: I will not make phone calls. Please check the website or Facebook page for any updated information regarding weather related cancellations.
