This photo sums up the school year perfectly.

High Five - we did it.
WHOA - we did it.
Happy Tired - we did it. 

While we still have loads of Mini Mermaids and Young Tritons running all over the US as summer comes rolling in and we are taking some time to look back at the school year and take a deep breath. It's incredible to think of all the students, teachers, parents, families, and community members that have heard our messages and discovered the joy of movement.  I think this video from Rialto Unified School District sums it up perfectly.  "We form a special bond outside of the student/teacher relationship", "My favorite part about Mini Mermaid is to never give up".

So now that the school year is done......what's on deck next in MMRCland?
This summer we have some big projects outside of the regular operations. 

Write Young Tritons Running Club Curriculum 3. YES so much growth they need more 

Develop and write Teen Mermaid, a more mature version of our Mini Mermaid curriculum for High School and Middle School girls. 

Mini Mermaid Camp returns to Cabrillo College this summer + Young Tritons are joining in on the fun! 

Mini Mermaids Tijuana! We have two groups, one along the railroad tracks just east of TJ and one in downtown TJ. 

AND...drum roll.....we will be putting all the plans in place to PARTY LIKE ITS 1999. Or actually 2009. We turn TEN THIS YEAR. I can't believe it. I really really really can't. Mark your calendars, we are throwing an epic party on Saturday, September 12th, 2020 at Bargetto Winery - you have a whole year to plan your trip here! 

That's enough for now! We can't wait to see what the new school year brings and to see you and to celebrate 10 years of reaching kids and adults all over the world with our message. 

Unleashing potential
moving, thriving, connecting. 

Happy Summer Friends. 

Heidi Boynton, CEO MMRC
