Miscellaneous Info: Tumblers should wear comfortable, athletic clothing - please no jeans or dresses/skirts. Hair needs to be tied back and out of face. No jewelry is to be worn during tumbling, please send a special baggy to store any jewelry that is worn to school on tumbling days. Socks or cheer shoes must be worn, so street shoes or bare feet are allowed on the tumbling mats. Older tumblers are encouraged to wear their cheer shoes, as socks don’t provide much traction. We ask that parents not be present during class. We tried to have the class times coincide with the W-W Afterschool program so parents/students can utilize the ASP in between classes, if needed. W-W students are encouraged to attend afterschool until tumbling class begins. If your child is not enrolled in the After School Program, applications are on the school website, or available in the school office. Please let Eden White or Kayti Ammerman (email@example.com) know if you’d like help getting your student signed-up for the After School Program.
Profits from tumbling camp will be used for Warbird cheer equipment.
Please make checks payable to: Wolsey-Wessington School. Financial assistance available (contact Eden White). Please email or text any questions to Eden White – cell 354-1624, firstname.lastname@example.org
