Handstands Around the World - As you all travel to fun places this summer have your kids show you their best handstand in the coolest places and take a picture of it. Then send us that picture with their name and handstand place to firstname.lastname@example.org or text it to me at (817) 501-9590. We would love to see where you all are traveling this summer!
Fall Registration – Our annual fall registration will begin August 1st this year. All our weekly classes beginning Sept. 2nd will begin at the beginning of the hour at 4:00, 5:00, 6:00, 7:00 or 8:00pm. There will be NO changes to the Saturday morning class times. You will need to stop by the office after August 1st to re-register for a new weekly class time. Your current days can stay the same but you will need to get moved into a new class time. We hope this will allow you all to get to class on time and open some more times available for classes during the week. All children must be moved into a new class hour No later than September 1st.
Annual Reg Fee – The Annual Registration fee of $50 per family will be charged to your account this year on August 1st. Please plan accordingly.
New Fall Classes – We are so excited to announce we will now offer two new 45 minute classes that are for 2 year olds & Mommy & Me Classes as well as 1.5 hour classes for those who want more than just one hour of gymnastics at a time. . Stay tuned for the new schedule beginning August 1st and then you can stop by the office to get signed up.
Bathrooms – If your child cannot go the bathroom by themselves you must stay in the gym so you can take them. We have had multiple accidents in the last couple weeks due to kids needing help that we cannot provide. Also, please make sure that all men who have to take their daughters to the bathroom use the MENS bathroom ONLY. We do not allow men in the girl’s bathroom.
1 year Anniversary – We are super excited to be celebrating our 1st year anniversary in our new location on Friday July 19th. We have loved getting settled into the new space this year and have made some great changes to our program. We have lots more great things coming that we are looking forward to sharing with you all.
POP Time – Our monthly POP (Preschool Open Play) Time will be July 27th from 4:00-6:00. You can sign you students up online through our parent portal. Bring a friend and come enjoy some fun!
Air Condition – We are looking for a new Commercial Air Condition company to come do our yearly inspection as well as start a new service contract. If any of you own, work for or know if anyone that is commercial reputable please let me know. I thought I would try our families first before I went in search of someone new.
Photo contest – During the month of August we are going to have a “Best Gym Photo” contest. Throughout the month you can take pictures of your gymnast and then when you publish them to your social media make sure you tag “Irving Gymnastics” on either Facebook or Instagram. Once you have we will get a notification and then at the end of the month we will award the best gym photo winner a $25 gift certificate towards their next month’s gymnastics tuition. Also don’t forget to “Check In” when you get to the gym as well as using our Snapchat filter to show off your great photos of your gymnast.
Cleaning Position – We are looking to hire someone to help with the cleaning duties in the gym. Currently myself, and our staff are doing all the work but we really are looking to make that a separate position. The position would be Monday – Friday as well as a weekend night clean. The duties would include, sweeping, mopping, dusting, and cleaning the restrooms, vacuuming, windows, trash and any other duties we would see fit. . You would need to lift 50 pounds as well as be available to start in the evenings about 7:00pm. We are looking for someone who has cleaning experience, has good attention to detail as well as a little OCD!
The person would need to pass a background check just like our entire staff does. We would like someone to come join our “family” and become a regular part of our staff. This is a part time position but could turn into fulltime as we grow and expand. If you are interested or know of someone who would be interested in the job please give us a call or stop by the office and speak to me.
Summer Camp – There is still 5 fun weeks of summer camp left for your kids to participate in. Online registration is the easiest, but you must sign-up by the Friday before camp to get a spot. Camp this summer is based on solid physical education principles and fun STEM projects. We combine the best of gymnastics and blend it with obstacles courses and education projects to create the perfect summer camp program for your preschool and elementary aged child.
Google Reviews – We are continuously working hard to build a great social presence in the community as well as our city. If you feel like you have had a great experience with one of our staff our just the program in general we would love to have you write a review about us through our Google reviews. You would just Google “Irving Gymnastics” and then navigate to the “reviews” section and leave us a review. We appreciate your help and hope to continue to provide you a great service.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns please make sure you let us know.
