We are so excited about our Spring Showcase coming up in 6 weeks. Our Hawaiian themed “Hula Fest” will be Saturday, May 20th. We will have the classes broken up into Sessions and our “Save the Date Cards” will be going out next week to let you all know exactly what session your children will be in. The cost for the showcase will be $20 and that fee will be charged to your account on Monday, May 1st with your May tuition. If you do not want your child to participate in the showcase you will have until May 1st to stop by the office and sign the non-participation form otherwise we are going to plan for everyone to participate. The kids have been working really hard learning skills and routines and we want to showcase their success in front of all their family. The kids will be receiving certificates, medals and we will have a reception after with light refreshments and a fun photo opp! Bring your cameras, come early, and watch proudly as your gymnast performs on all the different events! Please make sure the girls have their hair up, a leotard on without a skirt; boys need to be wearing their Irving Gymnastics t-shirt with black or red shorts. Please arrive at least 15 minutes early to get a good spot! There will be a cash only fee of $1 per person at the door – gymnasts will not be charged. We will be raffling off some great prizes as well.
Leotards sales will be returning in May. If your child needs a new leotard this will be a great time to get one. The leotards are $30 and the shorts will be $20. We will have many different sizes and styles for you to choose form.
We will have a make-up class for those ONLY Thursday students who had to miss a class on March 23rd due to the High School District meet. The class will be Saturday April 22nd and the classes will be as follows:
5:30 classes – 1:00pm
6:30 classes – 2:00pm
7:30 classes – 3:00pm
Tryouts for our upcoming 2017 Gymnastics Team will be on Sunday, May 21st from 4:00-7:00pm pm. Tryouts are for any child who is currently enrolled in our program that is not already on our team. The girls will need to be dressed in a leotard with their hair securely pulled out of their face. No parents will be allowed during tryouts. Please note that not every child that tries out will make the team. If they do not make the team this year they can stay in a class and work hard and tryout again next year. There will be many factors that go into our decision as to who makes the team. It will not only be based on skill, but attitude, motivation, and willingness to learn will play a big part in our decision. We will have an informative meeting about team on Wednesday, April 19th @ 6:30pm in the gym behind us. If your child is planning on trying out for team it will be mandatory for you to attend. A Skill sheet can be picked up in the office so you can see the skills we will be looking for.
Summer Camp will be returning this summer. The Hawaiian themed Packets will be available the week of the 24th. Online sign-up begins Monday, May 1st and free summer t-shirts will be offered to those signed up prior to June 1st. If you are planning on attending please sign-up as soon as you can as there will be limited number of spots available this summer.
If you have any questions please let us know.
Sincerely, Mrs. Shelly & the IGA Staff
