Help make the school shine bright, Teens get a night of fun for themselves and their friends, and more chances to compete
Spring Clean (Saturday 4/23 starting at 1:00): Please help us Spring Clean the dojang. Dusting, wiping, washing, and food drink for the helpers! Volunteers greatly appreciated. We will provide cleaning materials but if someone has another 10' ladder it will greatly help.
Teens (Saturday 5/14, 4:00-6:00pm): Join us on Saturday May 14 from 4-6pm for Taekwon-do, pizza and fun! Bring a friend from outside Taekwon-do if you want, or come and join your friends already here! Wear your regular clothes and bring your uniform, if your friend has not done Taekwon-do before he or she can take a class with you, they should just bring something to move around in. There is no charge for this special event but please RSVP so we know how much pizza to order.
On Saturday, June 11 all students are invited to participate in a team battle of Master Meany versus Master Giletti. Whose team will you be on? Stay tuned for details ...
