Dunamis Karate performance - 12:30 PM

Once again, the Gopher Hill Festival committee has asked our Dunamis Karate students to be a part of the entertainment for the annual festival.  We will perform at the stage area at 12:30 PM.

The theme for this year's festival is "KIDS FEST" ... It's all about the kids.  In keeping with that theme, we are asking all Dunamis Karate students (& parents, if you'd like) to wear a Superhero t-shirt.  We will NOT be ordering t-shirts school wide as we have done in the past.  Each person will be responsible for getting his/her own superhero shirt.

Please reply to this email letting me know which superhero you or our child will wear.

Some local stores that carry superhero shirts are: Walmart, Target & Dick's Sporting Goods.  You can also find superhero tees online at places like Amazon, Party City, etc. You are free to choose any hero, I only ask that you choose a shirt with the hero's "logo" not pictures of the hero.  I've got some examples below.

Thank you!
Mrs. Woods
APPROVED shirts ...
This sample shows an example of what I mean by the hero's "Logo."

Or shirts showing the hero's body like this below.
Some other approved options showing that clearly show the hero "logo" or body.

You may find some "body" hero shirts that also come with a cape... these are APPROVED. 
NOT Approved ... pictures of the hero.

Also NOT approved ... Writing on the shirt!
