Penguin Press–Week 4: Last Week of Session 1 Lessons!

Happy July Penguins!

Hope everyone has had a great week as we finally got some sun after a couple weeks of not-so-great weather. Crazy to think, but we are now approaching the halfway point of the season already! Session 1 lessons will end next week, and Session 2 starts right away on July 12. Please read the following for how exactly to sign up and other important announcements for this week!

A. End of Session 1

As mentioned before, the last day of Session 1 is next Friday, July 9. You will receive your lesson reports from your instructors on July 8, so that you can sign up for the appropriate Session 2 lessons (see more below). The last day of every session is also the ever-popular Game Day, where all swim lessons meet to play Dibble Dabble for the lesson period. This last Friday is open to all Monday/Wednesday and Tuesday/Thursday students as well.

  • Staff Appreciation Day

The last day of lessons is also Staff Appreciation Day. Please help thank our hard-working instructors by bringing in treats, snacks, or giving them a big thank you for all their hard work these last four weeks. They’ve spent countless hours putting together lesson plans and coordinating their lessons to provide quality swim lessons!

  • Lesson Reports and Session 2 Signups

As stated before, lesson reports for Levels 1-6, Dive 1 and 2, and Water Ballet 1 and 2 will be handed out at the end of class on Thursday, July 8. Session 2 Online Signups will open that evening at 6:00 PM and remain open until noon, Sunday, July 11. ADJUSTMENTS AND CHANGES WILL ONLY BE MADE UNTIL FRIDAY, JULY 16, AFTER WHICH NO CHANGES CAN BE MADE FOR CLASSES. You will sign up for classes online only on Parkcrest’s TeamUnify website. Please visit Parkcrest’s website for the lesson registration link. The Session 2 Lesson Schedule is here.

  • Instructor Evaluations

On Wednesday and Thursday, a table will be set up where you can fill out an optional, anonymous instructor evaluation. Your honest feedback will help us improve the quality of our lessons or keep things that are working well!


B. Lost and Found

The Parkcrest Lost and Found will also be cleared at the end of day on Friday, July 9. Please check the rack located under the backboard near the Men’s locker room if you are missing any towels, water bottles, or other items! All remaining items will be donated if not claimed.
