February 2018

Welcome!

Welcome new members, and welcome back returning members. We can't wait to start a new session of gymnastics. We are going to have a lot of fun this session learning gymnastics and meeting new friends.

Watch for our monthly newsletter to keep you posted on upcoming events.

Hallway Coat Area

Everyone has been doing a great job at helping us cut down on congestion by using our coat area in the hallway. Please remember to put wet boots on the mats in the hallway and coat room. Tumble Bee's and drop-ins now have their own bench at the end of the hallway by the Raccoon.

Please note: Our floors get VERY slippery when wet. Please walk on the carpeted area.

Make-up Day for Snow Days

There will be a make-up day for the Snow Days we have already had and any future ones Wednesday June 27th (hopefully the snow will be gone by then).

We will have a sign up sheet closer to the date at the front desk.

We are Closed on Family Day Weekend

Don't forget that there are no scheduled classes on Family Day Weekend.  That means no classes on Fri. Feb 16th, Sat. Feb.17th, Sun. Feb. 18th, and Mon. Feb. 19th

Have a safe and fun holiday with the family!

March Break Camp

March Break is coming up fast. NEW this year, you can sign up for the full week or you can sign up by the day. March Break Camp runs Monday March 12th - Friday March 16th.  We have Half Day Kinder Camp for ages 4 &5, and Full Day Camp for ages 6 & up.

Sign up at the front desk.

Drop in Times for 5yrs and under!

Not sure what to do with your little one while your older child is in class?  Check out our new drop in times.  Drop in classes take place in our upstairs Kindergym area . Children must be accompanied by an adult.  Drop in times are non-instructional and fully supervised.  Drop in times are co-ordinated with our busiest 90min classes. T his allows you the convenience of dropping your older child off in the big gym, while giving you time to take your younger child upstairs for some fun while they wait!

Fundraising

Chocolate Bar Sales

Many members have been asking when Lamontagne Chocolate Bars are coming back! Well wait no longer!  Our Annual Spring Chocolate Bar Fundraiser begins February 9th. This year we will be raising money for a new 'Crank' Balance Beam.  While selling chocolate is not mandatory, we would like each family to try and sell one case of chocolate. There are fabulous prizes for our top sellers (see hallway for details). 

Chocolate bar money is due March 11th. No unsold product will be accepted after this date and the full amount will be owing.
