Taekwondo Chip Case Display
As you know our LEGO Village is a big hit with all our students. This holiday season we are setting up a display where we need a "Christmas Tree Farm". All students who would like to make a Christmas Tree for the display should bring them in at graduation Friday November 9, 2018. Yes we recommend labeling your LEGO trees.
Graduation Announcement: All families are asked to bring a food item for the Jonesville Soup Kitchen this Friday Night at graduation along with $10 for our Thanksgiving Raffle of a $100 Hannaford Gift Card! We will be taking a group picture with our new ranks and food items for our local Newspapers. In addition we will be bringing all the food donations to the Jonesville Soup Kitchen on Monday November 12th (sooner than expected) as they prepare for the Thanksgiving week.
Please take the time to review this eNews. There are important dates and events that ALL our families need to be aware of. Thank you.
They say that the
average American will eat over four thousand calories on Thanksgiving and I
plan on enjoying every single calorie. It’s true that you can’t escape the
business of the cooking and family visits but the entire day is set aside to be
“thankful” and we all have things to be thankful for – large or small. This
year Maddie (our daughter) applied to seven different colleges. She still hasn’t made
her final decision yet but we’re pretty sure it will be a college where she
will focus on pre-veterinary medicine and animal biology as she pursues a career
as a veterinary surgeon. Caleb (our son) started eighth grade and AP classes, runs on the JV
cross country team and is kicking in the Taekwondo School as a second degree
Black Belt. Mary started a new career as a Medicare licensed agent helping seniors navigate through their healthcare options. We celebrated our twentieth
year anniversary together and our seventeenth year
as small business owners. We’re very thankful to be able to share Taekwondo
with some of the most terrific people in the community and look forward to
months and years to come.
