October 2021 Newsletter

Spooky season is one of our favorite times of the year! Our Halloween Open Gym will happen on Friday, October 29 and will include a costume contest. Even better is that the week of October 25th is Halloween theme week for all class kids. Let’s get festive and celebrate Halloween. We’ll even have a special treat for all the kiddos after class.

We hope you’ve noticed some of our recent improvements. They include a resurfaced parking lot and all new lighting inside the gym!  We are excited for the new energy efficient lights and have noticed a huge difference. We didn’t realize how dim it was in the gym until now! We are also loving the new foam on our rod floor and slat floor. Also, you don’t see it but our back office got a makeover earlier this session and our staff are loving their new break space. 

Happy Halloween,
Katie Cernea
