SSSG Notes September 12,  2019

In This Issue:

Hello all,

I hope your transition back into school, schedules and music is going well...

Please know that the first group class is this Saturday, September 14.  A gentle reminder to know that the GYMC is a shared space hence, please encourage your child to avoid loud, boisterous play while inside the centre.
