What Students can Expect :
Our After School Pick up program has served this area for over 15 years. We work on learning to over come fears, gain confidence and learn methods for dealing with a range of youth problems ranging from bullies, to strangers and the development of “self disipline”!
After pick up and upon arrival you are provided a snack and you put your backpack in a storage container.
New for 2012 your storage container will be inspected on Friday’s for cleanliness and you will be expected to take all your drawing and writings home. Last year several containers looked like archeological sites so this year we plan to keep the litter and your extra clothes and etc. to a minimum.
After snack we expect you to work on any homework you may have independently of any ones help.
Note if you are that exceptional student that gets all your homework done at school you will be expected to have a book to read, a journal to write in, or a sketch pad to draw on. This time will be quiet time and you are expected to observe this rule.
At 3:45 PM beginner students put up their boxes and begin Kung Fu Class from 4-4:45 PM.
Intermediates will be at their boxes at the end of the room and be expected to work quietly on any homework left to do, and read, sketch, or write.
Beginner’s class ends at 4:45. Intermediates put up their boxes and put out the beginners. Intermediates start their class at 5 PM.
Beginners will be at their boxes at the end of the room working on homework, and read, sketch, or write. They can be picked up at this time through 6 PM.
Intermediate class ends at 5:45 PM from that point all students wait quietly for pick-up.
6 PM starts Advanced Classes student waiting for pick up can talk quietly while waiting for pick up.
Program Particulars: Being that we are a Kung Fu school, we stress that respect, self – discipline, and honor are upheld and constantly the most important goals to achieve. We underline self-discipline because we place the responsibility for many things squarely on the students shoulders to accomplish and do not allow them to use mom or dad as an excuse for something not being done, so if they stress something that need to be done it’s them being responsible…but of course I am flexible I am just not allowing them to use you as an excuse. We stress life is about choices!
Fridays in the past has been a reward day or game day as we have dubbed it. The kids can bring their hand held games to play on that day and we offer several games and activities on that day. Pick up can be at any time on Fridays.
We pick up early of early release days and offer full day camps on teacher workdays you may have. That is included in your monthly tuition in exchange we charge the same flat fee of $165 per month even during the short week months of December, January, and March.
During those vacation weeks we off day camps at $165 per week, as well we offer Summertime Day Camps.
Promotions are an area that we use as an indicator of progress this year we will have two scheduled promotion ceremonies one at our Christmas show the other at the end of the year show. Other occasions for rank advancement will be on individual accomplishments of goals leading to rank advancement. Just as not all travelers arrive at a destination at the same time not all students advance in rank promotion at the same rate.
Feel free to contact me at any time concerning any issues you may have. I know not every child is going to become a martial artist, but I hope that through this experience they learn values that they can apply in their lifes. Sifu Dave
