This week we kick off our SUMMER SESSION and 8 WEEKS OF SUMMER FUN! Our summer fun theme weeks happen during our normal class times and they are a way to add an extra dose of fun to help keep our kids active, learning and engaged in the summer months. Here is an outline of all eight weeks so our students and prospective students can plan accordingly:
WEEK 1 – DYNAMIC DUO WEEK & FACEBOOK/INSTAGRAM CONTEST
MAY 29th - June 2nd
For this week students can bring a buddy with them to class and plan to wear a unique matching outfit. Whether they come as Sonny and Cher, Batman and Robin, Salt and Pepper, or some other Dynamic Duo, they will still need to be able to do Karate- so make sure they can move around in costume. Buddies will have to have a parent sign a waiver to be on the floor. Also, if your child has a friend who already attends the same class, that is totally cool for them to participate together and dress as a Dynamic Duo.
Facebook/Instagram Contest: Take a picture of the dynamic duo. Then, check in at HMA on Facebook/Instagram and post the picture with #dynamic duo. The team whose post garners the most likes will receive a prize.
WEEK 2 – HEROES AND VILLIANS WEEK
June 4th – 9th
Students can come to class dressed as their favorite superhero or super villian. We will have games and activities designed to test their super powers!
WEEK 3 – NINJA WEEK
June 11th - 16th
Students can come to class dressed as ninjas! We will have games and activities designed to tap into our inner ninja.
