Panera Bread Spirit Night Fundraiser

Thanks to everyone that supported Maple Academy's Chipotle Night!  

This Monday, Oct 3rd is
 our Vienna Panera Spirit Night.  
We hope to see you there!!

**Please note, these restaurants do not offer fundraisers on all nights, and when you request to have them, your date is assigned.  We wanted fall dates in order to support SRO, so although we apologize for the two being so close together, it could not be helped.

Remember, Panera needs a minimum of 20 flyers to give us any money.  In addition, the more we bring the more we will receive! Please use a separate flyer for every member in your party.  ;)

You can print the flyer here- or show it on your phone.  Thanks in advance!!

September Updates

Reminder:  Dance classes start up on Monday, September 12th.
Welcome Back!

Get Connected.  New dance families- Click here to join the Maple Academy page on FACEBOOK. (you have to request to join)

The fall is a busy time for everyone.  
Take a few minutes now to clean out your closets!! 
Try on those Maple costumes and shoes and see what fits and what needs to be replaced.  

Shoes and Costumes:

Anne Marie hosts the Used Shoe Shop.  She is also available most times there is dance class or SRO practice. Call her for an appointment.  She lives right near the Vienna class location so you can drop by for used shoes before or after class.

Do you need a new Maple School Costumes?  Check the current Costume Inventory HERE to get an idea of the costumes for sale.


In addition, the MBC is planning spirit nights at some of the local, Vienna restaurants throughout the fall to raise funds to offset the costs for SRO and other MBC events.  We also have an ongoing Yankee Candle more on the FUNDRAISERS page.

Chipotle Night: Sept 26th (5-9pm) in Vienna


Panera Night will be Oct 3rd (4-8pm) in Vienna

See the FUNDRAISERS PAGE for more information and the flyers.

(Panera requires redemption of at least 20 flyers to make a donation. A printed flyer or an electronic version of the flyer on a mobile phone or tablet must be presented when ordering. The flyers cannot be passed out onsite the night of the event—we must do this ahead of time.)
