The Ride Home

My daughter recently tried soccer for the first time. Having not played a town sport, my husband and I didn’t quite know what to expect. Prior to the first game, we received an email from the head of the league and he pass along this article about “The Ride Home”. I wanted to pass it along to my GDA parents too. Click Here to read the article:

“One of the saddest things I had to do as a Director of Coaching for numerous soccer clubs was conduct exit interviews, meetings with players whom had decided to leave the club. Children quit sports for a litany of reasons, and my job was always to see what we could learn, so we could improve…”

November Tuition– was charged on 11/1 for all accounts signed up for recurring billing. You can enable this feature through the parent portal if you have a valid credit card on file OR you can see Miss Helen in the office and she can set it up for you. Login to the Parent Portal here.

Costumes– Recital Costume payment was due October 14th. Costumes not paid for will not be ordered. Costumes will arrive anytime from January through May. When they arrive, we will have dancers try them on in class and check the fit. When your child takes their costume home, be sure to put it somewhere safe. Dancers are not allowed to perform in the recital with dirty or ripped costumes.

Parking Lot– Please observe the one-way pattern around the studio. And we ask that you do not form a pickup line before your child’s class ends. That area by the cones MUST remain open for the safety of dancers being dropped off. Thank you for your cooperation.

Label Your Clothing– So many shoes and jackets look the same. Please write your dancer’s name in or on them.

Lost and Found– Lost & Found will be emptied and donated to charity during Thanksgiving Break. Please check for your missing items.
