Hello Kids Club Families!
This month’s newsletter is all about Under the Sea. We are deep diving into the ocean to learn more about how to protect it!
We are also preparing to reopen our Kids Club locations in the coming months, stay tuned for more information on your club’s reopening date. We can’t wait to see you and your little ones again!
With all of our gratitude and appreciation,
The Chuze Fitness Kids Club Team
If your local Kids Club remains closed, not to worry! You won’t be charged Kids Club dues until we’re up and running again.

Inclusive Ways to Celebrate Parents and Families by VSB Diversity:

- Find out from children or their families the language they use to talk about their families.
- Read books with students that feature many kinds of family structures
Inclusive Ways to Celebrate Father’s Day by VSB Diversity:
- Make sure that you talk about the different people in your children’s lives who could receive any cards or gifts children might create
- With older elementary children, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day can also be used as an opportunity to look at gender stereotypes.
- For younger children, steer clear of activities that involve gender-stereotyping – like making cards shaped like ties for Father’s Day.
- Recognize that there may be children who have lost a parent or whose parent is absent, and difficult emotions may come up if you celebrate Father’s Day.
- The key is to be sensitive and help those children who need it, so that they do not have to handle challenges alone.
