We hope your summer has been a great combination of restful and exciting! 
Congratulations to those of you who were involved in Grace Kids Camp and EAS camp "Aslan"!  What an exciting June we all had!! 

 PLEASE COME JOIN US FOR A TOUR OF THE NEWLY REMODELED  FLOOR IN OUR EAS BUILDING starting on Tuesday at 4:00pm AND SEE ALL THE CHANGES THAT HAVE HAPPEN WHILE YOUR STUDENTS WERE AWAY THIS SUMMER! 
We will have refreshments/ welcome committee/ cookies and tour guides to walk you through the new floor. Its very exciting,It is time to begin our Fall semester and 'Lean In' to what God has in store for us this school year!

Our next big event is AUGUST 15!  Auditions are being held for all those who have not auditioned for our Company yet!  Our Companies are the ‘heart of EAS’ and our ‘equipping/commissioning’ (discipleship) Division. Through Companies/Teams we prepare students technically (thru technique classes in their particular art form), spiritually (thru weekly devotions/bible study that encourage relationship with God and an identity grounded in Christ),  and relationally (thru weekly rehearsals that encourage teamwork) to use their gifts to serve the body of Christ and the local community. 
We offer Company opportunities for Dance Companies (Ages 7-18),Music Companies (Ages 7-18),Acting Companies (Ages 8-18) & Media/Tech Company. Our Company students also get to go to Disney in California for a 3 day  building trip, with fellowship, technical workshops and personal growth with company members and leaders. THIS IS ALWAYS A HIGHLIGHT OF THE COMPANY MEMBERS IN THEIR WALK WITH OTHERS ALIKE IN THEIR CALLING TO GROW AS ARTIST AND KINGDOM BUILDERS. 

If you have a company student please start fundraising for DISNEYLAND!    Dates are going to be October 9-11!  This is good because it will float into our EAS Fall Break that next day the 12th of October.  We will be handing out Gold Canyon Candle Fundraising packets starting this Tuesday. This will help cut down the cost of your students Disney Trip. 
 There will be a Music 101 Workshop, dancers are doing an audition workshop and there is a music theater auditions workshop as well.  Plan for $350-$400 fundraising. This trip's focus is "team building" and "building unity" as we prepare for future ministry! Super important to have a solid team before we enter the "Spiritual Battle" together, so to speak.  We have letters available for fundraising for friends and family.  We are asking for $200 of your Disneyland money by September 15th and the rest at the LATEST the week of Disneyland itself.

We also are officially a FRY'S COMMUNITY REWARDS PARTICIPANT FOR 2015-2016.  You can get more information at FrysCommunityRewards@frysfood.com , however the first week of school  we will have cards and info for you! 
If you would like to go on line, please do so and register our school as your donation location (we are also listed in the dropdown box online)  our number is 36736. 

If you have not registered for Fall classes please do so ASAP, go on line to experienceartsschool.com, as classes are filling up fast, and start next Tuesday!

The Best Is Yet To Come!
