Dojo Newsletter : April 2019

Hello Family First family!!! It has been quite a busy few weeks here at the dojo…for those of you who have asked what “dojo” means, it’s our home! Dojo refers to a place where martial arts are practiced.

Happy April!!! I hope everyone is not only having a wonderful week, but a fantastic start to April! I am so excited about this quarter’s material that we will be working on and our theme…check it out below! The sun is shining and it’s the perfect day for some karate! Have an awesome day!

It is officially “T-Shirt Season” and I am super excited for our 2019 Respect Shirts! Woohoo! We have plenty in stock right now but they are selling like hotcakes! Grab one, or two, while you’re in the school today! “T-Shirt Season” means that your student can wear a Family First T-Shirt with their Gi Pants, as their uniform. If they do not have a FF t-shirt, they are welcome to wear their Gi Jacket like normal! 🙂
