PGC, INC. NEWSLETTER - SPRING SESSION 2017


Our Winter Session is coming to an end.  The seasons are changing and with the passing of Winter, it is Spring Session class registration time here at P.G.C.  We know you are aware of the need for good physical programs for your children.   Gymnastics is an activity that creates the coordination, flexibility, strength and fitness that gives students the basics for all sports and a foundation for a healthy way of life.   Offer your child the opportunity to take gymnastics classes and enable them to be physically happy and healthy but HAVE FUN at the same time!  P.G.C. continues to develop interesting, healthy and fun programs for all!  As always, the best we can offer our students is foremost in our minds!

SPRING ENROLLMENT - THE SUNSHINE SEASON!
Our Spring Session begins on March 13th and continues through Saturday, June 10th. All “New Student” registration forms will be processed on a first come - first served basis when it is received by P.G.C.  If your requested class is filled, we will contact you with other available days and times.  Your registration form must be filled in COMPLETELY and LEGIBLY. This eliminates us from having to return it to you!   If you are a Winter Session student, you must notify us by FEBRUARY 18th or WE WILL ASSUME your child/children ARE NOT returning for the Spring Session.  We must follow this rule in order to process our registration. WINTER STUDENTS – If you are concerned you may miss the deadline, an email or telephone call will TEMPORARILY hold your spot until you can make payment at your NEXT scheduled class.  

REFUND POLICY - WE CAN HELP!
Refunds will be given up to and including the third week of class.  Refunded monies are less registration fee, classes taken, or from week of notification to P.G.C. Inc.  

MISSED CLASSES - HOPE YOU ARE NOT SICK!
P.G.C. offers a make-up time for any class a student cannot attend.  Please call the office and schedule all make-ups.  Please inform P.G.C. if missing a scheduled make-up class prior to that class, or it will be recorded as your make- up.  A make-up class may not be carried into next session unless the absence occurs during the last two weeks of the current session.  THERE ARE NO REFUNDS FOR MISSED CLASSES!

CLASS STRUCTURE - ENJOY YOUR GROUP!
We will continue our testing program on the first day of each class for our students 5 years old and over.  This enables us to place each student in a group according to their present skill level. This tracking system gives us the opportunity to give each student more individualized attention and check their progress.  At times we must separate friends because of skill levels.  We recommend you do not ask to move your child to another group because of friends but encourage them to make new friends while attending class in their appropriate group!

LATE ARRIVALS - OOPS!
Please arrive for scheduled class 5 minutes before class time.  It is very difficult to conduct warm ups and move students to their scheduled events when students are late for their class.  Our instructors are unable to assist any late arrival.  P.G.C. reserves the right to not accept a late student.
