First of all, let me send out a big thank you to all our Planet team parents who assisted in the running of the Alabama State Championships at the Civic Center. They organized sign ins, presented awards, and even timed routines. We are proud to say that 24 of our students became State champions, including many of our new level one team. Some will go on to represent Alabama at the Regional level. As for team results, Planet finished 2nd in the state at the Bronze and Silver levels, and 3rd at gold and level 9!
If your child wants a chance to be part of our awesome team, we will have tryouts available to everyone on Thursday, April 12th from 4.30pm until we finish. Please sign up at the front desk so we know how many to expect, and we will call everyone over when we start. Parents will receive a letter with our recommendation after the tryouts, and should see the front desk to make any changes to their membership.
This month we will have some fun gymnastics games, challenges, and face painting during class for Spring Fling week from April 16-21.
Towards the end of this month, we will start to prepare for our annual Mini-Olympics on May 18th, as students begin to learn their routines on all events. This will be a fun meet with podium medals and goody bags.
Summer day camps start at the end of May. Grab an information postcard from the front desk if you don’t already have one. If you are signing up for Olympic Gymnastics Camp, hand in your form as soon as possible so you don’t miss out on ordering the camp leo/shorts/tee package which must be ordered by May 1st.
