LIVINGSTON | July 2018

Independence Day

Remember, we will be closed on Wednesday, July 4, in observance of Independence Day. See you back in the pool on July 5.
*For our Wednesday families, you will be prorated for the month of July.

Overcoming Fear of Water

Initial fear of water is nothing out of the ordinary for a child just beginning to swim.  We checked in with Chrissy Orlando, General Manager of Goldfish Macomb, to see what some typical behaviors are that children exhibit at the beginning, and how Goldfish works with parents to ease the transition into full fishhood!

Just add water

There's no greater feeling than the pride that comes with witnessing your child make strides in life - that's why we're always celebrating at Goldfish.  Achievements big and small, progress, milestones, fun.  Setting goals, attaining goals, celebrating progress. 

Progress Report Week
July 15-21, 2018

The week of July 15, each of our students will get a progress report after class.  This report offers a detailed assessment of what your little swimmer has accomplished and what needs to be worked on moving forward!  Remember to stop by the front desk to pick yours up if you miss your regularly scheduled class.

Single Class Cancellation
"We've been taking our 3 year old son to Goldfish for a little over a month, and could not be happier!  We've found the classes really helped improve his confidence in the water.  Our son has gone from crying at the side of the pool to jumping into the water without hesitation and with a big smile on his face.  It's also been great to see him be gradually pushed and advancing at a pace that is comfortable to him.  The Goldfish instructors are kind, fun, and supportive and the staff has been so flexible and accommodating when we've had issues around our schedule.  I can't recommend this safe, friendly, and knowledgeable school enough!"
