Tenet of the Week:
“Always believing in myself.”
I can do anything I set my mind to. I am a positive example for everyone around me.

Safety First - Look both ways before going into parking lot!
With so many people coming and going it can get pretty hectic. Cars may not be able to see you, so be safe!
No Peanuts Please!
We have students who are severely allergic, so don’t bring peanuts to BST and wash your hands if you ate them earlier. Thanks for keeping each other safe!
Bring a water bottle to classes!
To be able to get a drink during class, make sure to bring a water bottle with your name on it!
We have a Bike Rack at BST!
Please bring a bike lock, and remember to take bikes home each night!

To get involved talk to the Front Desk!
No shoes, food, or non-water drinks on the mat!
Help us take care of our training space and keep it clean!
We always bow when we go on and off the mat.
This shows respect and gratitude for our training space.
Remember to show respect by saying "Yes Ma'am/Sir"
A huge part of showing respect is acknowledging when someone has spoken to you!
Pushups: consequence not punishment
Consequences are a fact of life. We like pushups because they build the core muscles we need to excel!
Association T-shirts are in! Everyone who paid their association fees on time can pick their “Mad Ninja Skills” shirt up from the front desk this week!
Color Belt Testing Paperwork is due March 6th by 5 pm! Pick your paperwork up at the front desk (or print from your email) and take it to your school teachers this week! It will make turning it in on time next week so much easier!
Black Belt Testing event DVDs are $65.
Please update your profile picture on Kicksite. If you don’t already have a picture for your profile on Kicksite, please come to the front desk so we can take your picture. You can also update or add your own photo via your kicksite account. If you need help logging in, please come talk to us at the front desk.
Pre-School Open House This Saturday from 10:30-11:30 am! If your child will be old enough to start preschool next fall, please come check out the Beyond Kids preschool here in our building! It is a montessori-based program with a focus on hands on learning. This gets the kids excited to learn and helps them to see the connections in their own experience. The children who have attended it this year have made great progress. We hope you’ll stop by and see what we have to offer. If you can’t make it this Saturday we will have another open house next Wednesday, March 4 from 12:30-1:30 pm.
“My youngest joined the preschool this year with zero school skills. Since she started she has learned her colors, her shapes, her numbers, and some letters. She also learned how to cut with scissors, hold a pencil/crayon/marker, color, trace, and glue. I know that doesn’t sound like much, but she’s only 3! She even learned how to clean up after herself, which is awesome. She loves going to be with her friends, and she loves showing me her creations. Of course I am biased, but I can’t recommend this highly enough.” – Whitnee Page

Note on Close Dates:
Many families go out of town for Holidays & 3 day weekends, which means that if we had class, many students would end up being behind when they got back. To mitigate this problem, we generally follow Alpine School District’s (ASD) Calendar and are closed when students don’t have school. We have worked these breaks into our curriculum schedule, so that students who attend our scheduled classes regularly will cover everything they need in order to test. We publish our close dates for the year in our Yearly Calendar. Please refer to it and plan as many vacations as possible during close dates to help keep interruptions on your path to Black Belt to a minimum.
