To the Parents/Guardians of interested students in Grades 3 through 8:

Thursday, 10/18:  Introduction to Punk Rope Session for first-time jumpers only

First day for first-time jumpers!!!!  For students who are new to Punk Rope, on Thursday, October 18th I will be offering an introduction to Punk Rope session (this is not a requirement to participate) starting at 7:45 in the Florence Sawyer Gym.  This will include rope sizing, jumping basics, and an opportunity to experience some of the non-jumping activities for the first time before the full group activity starts on Tuesday, October 23rd.  (Please note that if there are older siblings who are participating, they are welcome to come on the 18th also.)

Students should be dropped off at the Sawyer GYM door.
