Grand Opening for GYM

Basketball indoors? Volleyball indoors? Badminton indoors? Have you been longing for these things for the last two months? Your dreams are coming true!!! This Monday, October 30, TIS will use our gym for the first time since construction started last spring. The gym has a new and fresh look to it (look at the cool logo!!) and we are excited to use it again. We want to thank you for being patient with us as we have been waiting for the gym to reopen. This took hard work and long hours to complete and we want to thank those who helped make this happen.

Come by and see the changes in person when you have a moment.
