A salute to the Arts... And Fall Sports!
Pictured above is a smiling recipient of a scholarship for private piano lessons. This was her first lesson and she already looked comfortable sitting at the piano. Lessons are taught by Mary Ann Morgan Warren for 30 minutes once a week.
Registrations for Fall sports opened in September. With football season being in full swing, basketball and soccer registration began. One scholarship was given for Youth Soccer and one for Kinder Soccer. Kinder Soccer is a 4-season program, for ages 3 & 4 designed to introduce young players to the game of soccer.
Our only recipient, of a scholarship for group gymnastics began classes in September. Morgan's Gymnastics' Beginner classes teach children the basic skills needed to progress in the gymnastics program, such as handstands, cartwheels, round-offs, forward and backward rolls, splits, positions, and terminology. Vault, bars, beam, and floor are included in the Beginner lesson plans. Classes are one hour, once a week.
Youth Basketball registration opened in September. Ten scholarships were awarded to be a part of the Smithfield Youth Basketball Teams. Teams will be formed the week after Thanksgiving. All teams will practice in December and games will begin after the New Year.
Well, that's it for September. Please continue to read our monthly Blog to stay connected. And as always, thank you for your support!
