RECITAL RULES

     1. All students must report to the dressing room area ½ hour before show time.  

     2. No gum, jewelry, nail polish, no underwear with costumes.  Jewelry will be removed for the recital.

     3. No smoking is permitted on any of the school grounds or in the dressing areas.

     4. No food or drink is permitted in the auditorium. Concession stand is open.

     5. All students must be brought into the dressing room in full costume, with make-up on and hair done.


6. No students in costumes are allowed in the audience unless they are completely covered up.


7. No audience member may leave his or her seat while someone is performing.  Please wait until the act is over. This is to show respect for the child performing.  Thank You!


8. Your child is asked to remain for the entire show.   We ask that everyone stay until the finale so every child feels special with a full audience.  The recitals are approximately 2 ½   hours long. It is mandatory that all B.S.E. must stay until the end.


9. Following the finale, all children must be picked up in the student dressing area. There will be volunteer baby-sitters provided in the dressing area for the children.


10.     Make-up should be applied to your child: foundation, heavy blush, red lipstick (or    pink for little children), eye shadow, and mascara.  This is needed because the bright lights have a tendency to make the children look very pale.


11.     Relax and enjoy the show. Please keep in mind that all recital rules are Miss Cindy's.  Please follow them.  Please be kind and considerate to all the volunteers helping with the recitals.  They are enforcing the rules made by Miss Cindy.  This is a fun and memorable event for your child.  All the children worked hard towards this day so let's make it a day they will truly enjoy.  Thank You!

Gymnastics Newsletter and Meet Information

and

May and June 2023 Recital Newsletter


Dear Parents and Students;


Please keep this information sheet to refer to for any questions you might have about           the upcoming Gym Meet.


Our Gym Meet called “Magic Carpet Ride” is being held June 3 at 10:00 a.m. at the                Quakertown Christian School Gymnasium located on 50 E. Paletown Road,                          Quakertown.  It is mandatory that all gymnasts arrive at the gym at 9:30 sharp for                the show.  It is important that they are not late because they need to warm-up and                stretch.  Girls should be wearing their show leotards and the boys should wear their                shorts and t-shirts.   Hair should be in a medium high ponytail. No hair clips or                     barrettes will be allowed.  Also no underwear should be worn under the leotards.                 Boys should wear briefs under their shorts – no boxers.  Makeup for gymnasts is                optional, except all gym team members.  There is  no gum, watches, or jewelry                allowed.  Your child may bring a water bottle but please put his/her name on it.


Our gymnastic meet dress rehearsal will be held on June 2 at Quakertown

Christian School in the gym beginning promptly at 5:30 p.m. Please arrive at

5:15.  Students should come in sneakers and comfortable clothing to the  

rehearsal.  No leotards are necessary except the B.S.E. gym team. Any student

performing a solo or duo must come with their costume for rehearsal.  The

rehearsal should last approximately 1 hour so please return at 6:30 p.m.  There

will be a sign up sheet posted in the Perkasie Studio for volunteers to help at the

concession stand, and various other duties.  


The show will last approximately 2 hours.  Students will participate in 4 events:

bars, floor, beam, and vault.  Students will be judged on all four events and will

receive a ribbon for each event.  Scores will not be shown.  All gymnasts must

stay until the end of the show. At that time each student will receive a medal, so

have your cameras ready.  You may video tape or take photos during the event,

as long as there is no flash photos.  Please be considerate of other parents at the

show when video taping or taking pictures. No photos can be taken on the gym

floor, only from the sidelines.   Flash photography can be dangerous to gymnasts

on equipment.


All gymnasts will receive their ribbons June 6 and June 8 during their gym class.  

There will be no exceptions.  It takes time to divide the ribbon envelopes and

placement for next year's classes will be done during that class. The last

gymnastic class will be June 8.


In order to cover the cost of the gym rental, ribbons, medals, coaches and

judges, we will have a ticket fee of Adults - $13 and children 11 and under $8, for

advanced sales.  We suggest that you purchase tickets early to avoid waiting in

line. Tickets will be sold at the door; Adults - $14 and children 11 and under $9.  

There will be an area for handicapped access.


When you arrive at the gym, there will be someone at the door to tell you where

to take your child.  Students must go to the gymnast's area.  They are not

allowed to sit with parents and parents are not allowed to stay in the gymnast's

area with students.  Each team will have a student from the Broad Street

Entertainers as a squad leader.  


At the close of the show, the students will remain on the floor in their squads and

parents must come down to the floor to get them.  No student will be released

until their parent comes for them, so do not make arrangements to meet.  The

squad leaders will not let them leave without a parent.


All tuition for the year, including June is due the first week of May.  You may not

receive the tickets for the show until tuition is paid up for the year. Classes will

continue until June 8. There will be no classes held Memorial Day

Weekend, including Friday, May 26; Saturday, May 27 and Monday, May 29.
