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

Don't forget that there are no scheduled classes Family Day Weekend.
That means no class Friday February 12th, Saturday February 13th, Sunday February 14 and Monday February 15th.

Chocolate Bar Sales
The Hamilton Gymnastic Academy is a non-profit organization. A few times each year we ask our members to support our various fundraising activities. This Session we will be doing Chocolate Bar Sales!!! This year we will be doing a shorter selling period with incentives for early returns. We ask each family to try and sell one case. Every year we try and raise money to purchase new equipment for the gym! This year we need a new carpet for the floor in the gym. We would like to purchase a "Red" carpet! The cost of the floor is $12,317.00. All the money raised by chocolate bar sales will go towards the purchase of this new carpet. Keep your eyes on the front lobby to see the NEW exciting prizes we have added for the top sellers!
We will be doing another Hoodie order sometime this month. Keep your eye out for signs in the lobby.
