On Monday, December 11th, STMA is partnered with Paula’s Coffee House located at 108 N Page St. in Endicott for a fundraiser. A portion of that day's proceeds at Paula's will be donated back to our school! Anyone can grab a coffee, drink, or dessert at Paula's so pass this information around!
Come check us out at UE High School for The Harvest Festival!
Try and break a board!
Students, friends and families. Mrs Dana Sibley is looking for donations for a Christmas shop her and one of her girls are doing for the children free of charge. I will be setting up donation box at the school when I get in tomorrow and it will be there till the day she needs them if you plan on doing a monetary donation I will set an envelope on my desk. Let’s help the littles. You can stop by weeknights from 5-8ish and sat from 1130-3ish with donations. The schools address is 57 Washington Ave. Please use the back door when dropping off. Thanks
Awana Christmas Store
It is time for my annual begging letter, requesting donations for the AWANA Christmas store. This year the store will be December 11. The Christmas store is a favorite with the AWANA clubbers. Each child is given the opportunity to shop for free for all members of their house holds. Gifts are wrapped and tagged and ready to be put under their trees at home…or opened as soon as they get them home because kids are excited to give the gifts.
Boxes of candy
NO CANDLES (they don’t go)
Things to decorate their bedrooms.
There are several families with small babies, so baby items are a big need this year. Baby toys that are new would be most appreciated.
Someone asked what goes best…new items, boxes of candy, legos, and men’s items in general.
Some popular characters gifts are Paw Patrol, LOL dolls, PJ Masks, Disney, Stranger Things.
Any and all contributions are appreciated and will be taken right up until store night. We will also accept monetary donations and do the shopping ourselves.
The items on the list are just suggestions, we will take anything!
Any questions please talk to Dana or Aurora!!
Sorry for the late notice, but STMA will not be formally going to the maze tonight at Stoughton Farm. 🌽Anyone who is still in going: we hope you have a lot of fun! Take some pictures.
Good morning everyone.
Master Greene has tested positive for covid. Master Angelo will be at the Dojang tonight and Friday for classes. If no one is there when you arrive, please wait as he is on his way. There will be NO CLASSES THURSDAY.
Also, the corn maze this Saturday is to be determined. With current health status of everybody and the potential for rain it is currently up in the air.
Any questions please let us know. Stay safe and healthy everyone.
With the weather looking pretty crappy, our last open outdoor class will be inside. Sorry everyone.
- There will be no TSD classes Sep. 2nd and 4th for Labor day.
- Also, there will be no Tiny Tigers Sep. 1st due to instructor availability.
Looking at the weather it seems like it may be a good idea to take class inside tonight. Still open class from 530-630.
Hard work developing new skills has its reward. Congratulations for braving the heat and demonstrating what you can do. Haidong
The school received an email this morning. Unfortunately, due to the impending thunderstorms this morning, the chamber decided to cancel the parade in Newark Valley.
Still Planning on having Sparring class this morning then. BRING WATER. If you aren't planning on coming in for class. Stay Cool, Stay Hydrated, and Stay Safe. See you all next week.
With the heat advisory in effect and the lack of AC in the school we will be canceling classes for the night. Sorry everybody. Don't need anyone passing out from heat exhaustion. Stay cool and stay safe.
Sorry for the late post. No classes tonight and tomorrow night. Enjoy the holiday. Happy Independence Day everyone!!!
We will be closed July 3rd and 4th! We hope everyone has a great Holiday!
STMA is proud to announce that Mr. Jackson Moore is our next Black Belt Candidate! Jackson tested for his 4th Red belt stripe a few months ago. He knew all his material, but was missing one thing: Confidence! Over the course of these past few months Jackson has grown physically, mentally, and spiritually. He has shown that he is now ready for the test this coming October at ATA HQ in Boston, MA! Tang Soo!
Start of Thursday Night Outdoor Training this week. 17C Sports park is the planned location for the summer. That being said, Dicks Sporting Goods Open is this week and travel by Enjoie Golf Course is likely to be atrocious. I am planning on moving the training to Arnold Park in Vestal for this Thursday's class. Please let us know if you have any questions. Tang Soo!!
Visiting Owego's Strawberry Festival this weekend? Check out STMA in the parade Saturday morning at 9:30am! Grab a flyer, watch different techniques, and maybe even get some candy. Can't wait to see you there!
Quick update. We will be having class tomorrow (Friday, 6/9/23).
Parts of Endicott are without power, including STMA, due to NYSEG doing a system upgrade. As great of an opportunity it is to take class outside, with current air quality issues it may be best to just cancel class for the night.
With that being said I'm also looking at canceling class on Friday night as my stepdaughter is graduating from High School and requested that I be there.
