REMINDER TO all parents to be sure that you have given us your email address so that we can forward you the monthly newsletter to read. Our website address is www.mcloughlinschool.com. We will not be making calls re: weather-related class closings. Please look on our facebook page or the website for this information, as well as other important information throughout the year. You should get in the habit of checking it before class in case anything has changed.
Of course, you can always access the newsletter on our school website. Please carefully read the general class information sheet, (which was part of your registration packet). You can also check this year’s class calendar online.
FEIS THANK YOU
We would like to thank Elaine Greenan, for chairing our Feis. As many of you know - this is a daunting task run once a year by our school and it is essential to have all our parents volunteer. We truly thank those of you who went above and beyond your commitment and worked many hours to make the feis a success and those who donated towards the kitchen and the awards or were a sponsor. Thank you to Lizanne Fiorentino for all your hard work and all our committees for their many jobs!
A financial report will be available within the next 2 weeks for anyone who wishes to see it. If there is an area you would like to be involved in next year, please let us know.
Congratulations to those who won their Championship competitions at our Feis - Keira Rheinheimer - Under 10, Kendal Griffler - Under 19. They were the recipients of the $100 Maureen Glynn scholarships. This year we also awarded the following:
Peter Smith Scholarship of $200 to Kendal Griffler
Agnes Kelly Scholarship of $200 to Samantha McCoy
Thank you to Jimmy Early and Mairead Early for organizing and running the Grade Exams and congratulations to our dancers who took them and passed!
GOOD LUCK to Kendal Griffler and Samantha McCoy who will be representing our school at the ALL-IRELAND CHAMPIONSHIPS later this month!

We will be having extra classes on Saturday, October 17th, Saturday, October 24th and Saturday, November 7th at St. Mary’s in Dumont at 9:30am.

Please remit payment in an envelope with your child’s name on it.
NEW COSTUMES REMINDER:
Costumes are being made now.Balances will soon be due.
Mid-Atlantic Regional Oireachtas
The Mid-Atlantic Regional Oireachtas (qualifying event for World Championships) will be held on Thanksgiving weekend at the Philadelphia Marriott. We need parents to volunteer some time over the Oireachtas weekend with the Parents Association, which is very important. Please tell Patsy if you can volunteer some time. Thanks.
Reminder Regarding Class Fees and Registration
Class fees are due the FIRST WEEK of each month, handed in at class or mailed to the above address, if you are unable to attend that class. Class fees were determined not by the number of classes in each month, but by the number of total classes divided into 10 monthly payments. A late fee of $10 will be charged for payment received after the 2nd class of the month.
PLEASE CHECK THE WEBSITE FOR CLASS CLOSINGS IN NOVEMBER.
Happy Thanksgiving to all our dancing families!!
