My Gym Ahwatukee • 4142 E. Chandler Blvd.

As a community staple for more than eight years specializing in keeping kids active, My Gym Ahwatukee is offering its summer camps and classes for kids.

Available for kids from age 3 to 9, the gym has its summer camp on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 1 to 4 p.m. where kids can enjoy structured activities and games with a theme each day.

“The three hours are extremely active,” said owner Amy Huffman. “It’s a great way to burn off energy for the kids.”

Summer classes are offered for babies as young as 6 months to kids as old as 13 throughout the week at the children’s fitness center.

The indoor children’s gym has more than 270 locations nationwide.

Huffman said the summer camps and drop-off events biweekly are most popular among parents.

“It’s nonstop fun, it’s not like an open day care and it keeps the kids active at a time when moms need it,” Huffman said.

Brian Gibson, principal at Kyrene de las Lomas Elementary School, poses with students at Lomas on Wednesday, Aug. 6.

Kyrene de las Lomas is one of the 12 Kyrene schools in the Ahwatukee area that has been educating its students for many years.

Currently, enrollment at Lomas stands at 744 students from grades preschool through fifth grade.

Principal Brian Gibson said the new school year would bring opportunities for new staff members to be immersed within Lomas’ community.

“We already have a seasoned staff, and we’ve been working on new programs,” he said.

Gibson, who’s starting up his sixth year as principal, said Lomas’ diverse population was what set the school apart from other schools around the district and was a great representation of different communities.

Recently, Lomas earned a “B” grade for the 2013-14 school year from the Arizona Department of Education.
