Due to the 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 Wednesday for six weeks starting October 28th. This initiative supports the dance and fundamental movement components of the Physical Education Program. Each class will participate in three breakdance sessions. New moves and skills will be introduced each week. All students will be participating in this initiative as part of their regular gym time. A schedule as to when your son or daughter will receive their sessions will be sent home closer to when the Jimmy Chapman sessions begin.
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.
