Parent's Day

Once again we will be having Parent's Day on the last day of the Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday classes only.  This is a chance for the parents to view their child's class from inside the gym.  Taking pictures is encouraged! Parent's Day will be on the last day of your child's class during their regularly scheduled class time.

Spring Sign Up

Sign up for the next session Jan-June 2015 is under way. Don't forget to re-register because spaces are not guaranteed.

March Break Camp

March Break Camp runs Monday March 14th-Friday March 18th. We have Half Day Kinder Camp for ages 4 &5, and Full Day Camp for ages 6 & up. Full Day Campers will enjoy a trip to Burlington's Cedar Springs Health Racquet & Sportsclub on Wednesday March 16th, as well as a trip next door on Friday March 18th to EMA for a self defense class. More information coming soon.

FUNDRAISING:

Breakfast With Santa

Breakfast with Santa was such a huge success and so much fun.  Thank you Santa for coming to visit us, and thank you to all the parent volunteers who cooked and served the breakfast.  It was Yummy!

Bodysuit Sale

Thanks to “One by One” for bringing in your beautiful bodysuits just before Christmas. They will be back next session.

Hoodie Orders

Wow! Who knew so many people wanted HGA Hoodies!  We will be doing another order some time in February.

Chocolate Bar Fundraiser

The chocolate bar fundraiser begins February 16th.  This year our goal will be to raise money for a new “red” carpeted floor for the gym.  The floor will cost $12,317.00- all chocolate bar proceeds will go towards the new floor.  I can't think of a better way to raise money than eating chocolate.

COACHES CORNER:

Coach of the Month

Congratulations to Sara Curley this month's Coach of the Month.  Sara was such a big help to us these past few months helping out with the Competitive and Aerials demonstations for the Breakfast with Santa.  For those of you who don't know Sara, she has been our competitive choreographer for the past few years, and she coaches the Dance Tricks group on Sundays. Her son is in our Lil Leapers program.  It was so nice of Sara to take time out of a very busy competitive season to help our with our demonstations.  Way to go Sara!

C.I.T. of the Month

Congratulations to Bella Greco this month's CIT of the month.  This is Bella's first year as a C.I.T.  Bella started out in our precompetive when she was small.  She took a little break from gymnastics, but returned to the sport she loves a few years later.  Bella has been very active in our recreational program ever since.  Bella is a great help to the coaches and groups she works with.  She is very enthusiastic, and dependable.  Way to go Bella!
