3) For more info about Tony Vacca, check out:

4) You do not need a permission slip for Night of the Arts this year; you can simply show up with your child(ren). 
5) Children DO, however, need to be supervised at all times by their parents and/or guardians at the Night of the Arts!
6) There is no dress code for the Night of the Arts. Children can wear whatever makes them feel special for performing with Tony Vacca!
7) Students will line up on the ramp in the Jefferson lobby that leads to the stage when it is time for them to perform. After their performance, they will exit the stage on the Remington side and meet their families in the Remington hallway so as to avoid any congestion and traffic.
