HAPPY TTS BIRTHDAY & HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY dear Families...
It hardly seems possible that we are beginning our EIGHTH YEAR at Time To Shine, but glory hallelujah, it is TRUE! Surely do hope that you had some cake on our February 4 birthday cake. I would personally like to extend the most heartfelt appreciation to every single one of our families that have had a hand in making Time To Shine what it is today…the hands-down BEST Performing Arts Center in our entire metro area.
When I see the students bound happily through our doors, I cannot help but reminisce about their first time approaching those same front doors...eagerly, but with wary anticipation of what was to befall them on the other side. There is no doubt that their bravery in trying something new has more than paid off through the years. We have had a front row seat watching the transformation of cautious caterpillars turn into beautiful bouncing butterflies with steady guidance by all involved. That includes teachers, staff, parents, sisters and brothers, friends, grandparents, guardians AND students all with the same goal in mind: preserving, safeguarding and keeping The Arts ALIVE so that we may continue to bask in all the glory their mastery shall provide.
Not only have we seen our children grow, but the side benefit of meeting and watching the most caring parents develop friendships with each other has been heart-warming beyond belief. (We WILL return to Waiting Room Camaraderie soon I hope!) In a word, we love you and your children as our own, you are an integral part of our TTS Family. What we will continue to offer to your children is for them to feel comfortable and cared for, surrounded by safe walls and nurturing teachers. This is a wonderful rock to lean on in this increasingly puzzling world.
All in all, I can say with blessed assurance that the “Time To Shine Experience” is amazing to behold, fills a niche our community sorely needed, and we are most definitely teaching our children well. To God be the Glory!!!
Musically yours in this month of love,
