November News

Fall has arrived! I hope you and your families are doing well and enjoying the fall weather. There are a lot of things going on in the gym the next couple months so please take time to read through each item so you and your children do not miss anything.  We have the slide show up and running in the gym.  Watch closely for new announcements.  We have a new assistant at the front desk.  Please stop by and welcome Lucero if you have a chance. 
 

Thanksgiving Feast – Super Saturday - Join us this Saturday, November 13th from 6:00-10:00 pm for our Annual "Thanksgiving Feast". We will have turkey games, turkey crafts, and a traditional Thanksgiving dinner complete with chicken, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans & macaroni & cheese. Online signup is open, or you can stop by the office to sign up.  The cost is $25 when you sign up online and $30 at the door.
 

• We are CLOSED FOR EVENING CLASSES beginning Monday, November 22-27 in observance of the Thanksgiving Holidays. We will resume classes November 29th.  There will not be makeup tokens given for these days. 
 

Makeup Tokens – Starting January 1st makeup tokens will expire after 30 days.  Also, you must be enrolled in our program in order to use makeup tokens and there will be a maximum of 4 tokens issued per month. 
 

• Please make sure if you chose to stay and watch your children that you are seated in one of our designated seating areas. You can choose bleachers, barstools, chairs, or the couches.  At no time should anyone other than gymnasts be inside the black curtains which are inside our “gym area” as our insurance does not allow this. There should be no standing in the “hallway areas” in front of the dance room or the balance beams.  We had our yearly visit from the Fire Marshall, and he was very specific that there was to be no standing in any of the “hallway areas” due to safety reasons.
 

• We have a collection of water bottles and other miscellaneous items which have been left at the gym.  Please look on the table under the TV to see if you have left anything.  We will dispose of all items not collected on Nov. 30.
 

• Girls are required to wear a leotard to class.  If your gymnast needs a leotard, we have some available for purchase.  You can also purchase them at Target, Walmart, or Amazon. 
 

Ninja Shirts have finally arrived!  Please stop by the Pro Shop to make your purchase.  They are $25 each and come with a water bottle and a drawstring backpack.

Just search for “Irving Gymnastics” and “like” us so you can keep up with the current events of the gym.  If you are in doubt of anything, check our FB page or website at www.irvinggymnastics.net.  We are also on Instagram.  Search Irving Gymnastics and follow us. 
 

• If you are changing classes, please stop by the desk to make changes.  If you do this through the portal the system will charge you tuition again.  We will be more than happy to help you find a class and get you schedule changed. 
 

• If you have scheduled a makeup class, stop by the desk to pick up your makeup slip to go into class.  This tells the coach you are attending the class.  If you do not have a slip, you will not be admitted into the class. 
 

Looking Ahead – The gym will be closed will be closed for Christmas from December 23-25, resuming classes on the 27th.  We will be closed for New Year’s from December 30-January 1, resuming classes on the 3rd.  
 

• Our Christmas Party is scheduled for December 11th from 6:00-10:00pm. We will be donating again this year to the Genesis Women’s Shelter.  Due to COVID this will be done in a different fashion, but I know we will make it great.
