“Jimmy Chapman” Is Coming Back To Dr. George Hall! 

(this information in letter form will be going home on September 8th or 9th)


Due to an overwhelming positive response by parents and students of DGH to last year’s breakdance session, we are very excited to announce that “Jimmy Chapman” is coming to Dr. George Hall once again!  Students from Kindergarten to Grade 8 will have an opportunity to learn cool new “breakdancing moves” in a fun and inclusive setting.  Jimmy will be visiting our school every Tuesday for six weeks starting September 16th.  This initiative supports the dance and fundamental movement components of the Physical Education Program.  Each class will participate in three breakdance sessions. Primary classes will begin dancing on September 16th,  with subsequent sessions on September 23rd and 30th.  Junior and Intermediate classes will begin their breakdancing on October 7th, followed by sessions on October 14th and 21st.  New moves and skills will be introduced each week.  All students will be participating in this initiative as part of their regular gym time.

We do, however, continue to need the help of our DGH families in bringing this exciting new initiative to our school.  Each student is asked to contribute $3.00 to help cover the costs associated with this presentation (that’s only $1.00 a lesson!). The remainder of the cost will be covered by school funds including fundraising. This is a fantastic opportunity for the girls and boys of DGH to experience this popular form of dance in a safe and supervised setting.  Please fill out the form below and return it to your child’s teacher.

Thank you to Mrs. Karklins for organizing this year!
