Homeschoolers will learn outdoor awareness and have the opportunity to deepen their relationship with nature. Develop independence as you learn survival skills, fire building, shelter construction, animal track identification, navigational skills, and uses for wild plants.

Nature doesn’t rest and neither should you! Did you know that spending time outdoors helps improve a child’s overall health as well as improves their concentration and ability to problem solve and think creatively? Participants will learn about birds, leaves, habitats, and more, as they become more comfortable spending time in nature!

Extended School Enrichment

EXTENDED SCHOOL ENRICHMENT Extended School Enrichment (ESE) is founded on the belief that each and every student is capable of being successful. We are committed to setting high expectations and assuring the development of a strong foundation in basic life skills.

ELIGIBLE STUDENTS

BEHAVIOR EXPECTATIONS

The Extended School Enrichment program is open to all children enrolled in grades K-6 at each of the Carmel Clay Elementary Schools.

The Extended School Enrichment program is characterized by sensitivity and respect for all individuals. ESE promotes positive student interaction, self-control, respect for others and personal responsibility. Expectations and consequences permit students an opportunity to eliminate inappropriate behavior. ESE Behavior Guidelines are enforced: • By all staff members at all times • In substantial part by adult role modeling • Using techniques that promote the growth of positive self-esteem • As close to the source as is possible • By holding students accountable for their actions • By keeping parents informed • By limiting group discipline to a maximum of one minute • Through implementation of the Behavior Consequence Rubric

PROGRAM COMPONENTS & LAYOUT Each of the eleven elementary school sites will have the same core components of ESE, with each school customized to serve the best interests of the students and parents/guardians. The following is an example of a daily ESE program day: Before-School 7:00-7:15 a.m. Parent/guardian sign-in and socialization 7:15-7:30 a.m. Breakfast 7:30-8:00 a.m. Enrichment Clubs 8:00-8:05 a.m. Student sign-out and transition to school day After-School 2:35-2:45 p.m. Student Sign-In 2:45-3:15 p.m. Group A - Snack; Group B - Recess 3:15-3:45 p.m. Group B - Snack; Group A - Recess 3:45-4:30 p.m. Academic Assistance 4:30-5:30 p.m. Enrichment Clubs 5:30-6:00 p.m. Daily Wrap-Up

Build a Snowman or Snowlady

This classic activity is a must every winter! Pack a bag with two black coals, a carrot nose, pebbles, and an old scarf and hat. Once you get to the park, start your snowman scavenger hunt! You’ll need two sticks for arms, small pebbles for the eyes and mouth, and plenty of snow. Now you’re ready to build your snowman!

Go Sledding Get your family and friends together for an afternoon on the “slopes!” Try the large hill, also known as Jill’s Hill, at West Park. And of course, warm up afterward with some hot chocolate.

Take a Winter Walk Bundle up and enjoy the outdoors on a winter hike. Experience nature in a whole new way under the cover of snow. Keep an eye out for animals, plants, and trees. Maybe even plan a scavenger hunt to find pine cones, leaves, and signs of wildlife!

When the snow starts to fall, our parks are transformed into a glistening winter wonderland! Plan a trip to a park this season with family and friends. When you arrive you’ll step into a world of snowmen, sleds, and snowflakes. Here are a few ideas for how you can enjoy the wintery wonderland! 317.848.7275 • InTrac: 711

Super. Every Day! Disability Awareness Month is a full month of celebration for us as we believe that all community members are unique, important, and valuable. We will be celebrating everyone’s strengths, uniqueness, abilities, and powers. During the Fall of 2017, our inclusive theatre ensemble started the Barrier-Free Theatre process. Barrier-Free Theatre was developed by Sally Bailey and supports actors with disabilities in creating their own theatre production. Our actors decided on the theme of superheroes because we believe everyone has special powers that support them in overcoming problems. Our troupe of actors believe that they are super every day. Thus, the theme of our show was born! This March we will be exploring abilities through the superhero lens. Our participants will be writing the show, designing our set, creating costumes, and performing in an original production. Join us for this unique and special performance on March 24 at 6pm or March 25 at 1pm at the Monon Community Center. You can purchase your tickets beginning January 1 at any desk for only $5. Please join us this March to help increase awareness and create acceptance for all people.

What store is your go-to for all of the latest gidgets and gadgets at the top of your loved ones’ wish lists? There are plenty of places we can think of that might have everything you’re planning to buy – but this holiday season, we’re encouraging you to take a step outside of those big box stores and into a whole new gift giving experience right here at the Monon Community Center.

FITNESS TRACKER VERSUS PERSONAL TRAINER Fitness trackers are at the top of many wish lists, but there are other ways you can show support for your friend hoping to make a lifestyle change. Instead, buy them some one-on-one time with a personal trainer! They’ll be more likely to meet their wellness goals for the new year if they have someone to help track progress and hold them accountable. Sessions start at just $30 for one 30-minute session and go up from there. Contact Fitness Supervisor, Mary Evans at mevans@carmelclayparks.com for more information about our personal trainers or to purchase sessions today.

hobby supplies VERSUS Program registration Do you have a friend who really loves painting? Maybe you have a child who has lots of interest in engineering. Whatever hobbies your friends and family members enjoy, we’ve got an activity that they’ll be sure to love. From robotics to wild edibles, we offer hundreds of fun and enriching programs to choose from. Just keep flipping through this guide to see what we’ve got going on this season!

fitness equipment VERSUS membership

15 15

How many times have you purchased fitness equipment only to have it wind up dust-covered in the hall closet or priced at a bargain in the next annual garage sale? Instead of giving your health-conscious friend the latest yoga mat or set of weights, try gifting them a membership to the Monon Community Center. We’ve got all the fitness equipment they’ll need for their workout covered, in addition to tons of other included amenities. Read more about memberships, which start at just $42 a month for adults, on page 4.

Not sure what program or activity fits your loved one’s or friend’s needs the most? Package a copy of the 2018 Winter/Spring Brochure with a gift card and let them make that choice! Stop in and talk to us today about how we can help you wrap up your holiday shopping with plenty of time to spare!

STATEMENT OF ACCESSIBILITY

• Linus Rude

Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation (CCPR) makes a good-faith effort to ensure all patrons, and the community at-large, are knowledgeable of the resources and opportunities available to them, which support full and active participation within CCPR’s parks, facilities, and programs. CCPR believes every individual has the right to participate in activities and programs that supports their physical, mental, social and emotional wellness, and therefore contribute to enhancing their overall quality of life. Based on this belief, and CCPR’s vision and mission, we are committed to the provision of services for individuals of all ages, skills, and ability levels. This is achieved by identifying and removing barriers in order to serve individual and community needs, as well as to provide quality programs and services accessible to all; such as our many recreational, leisure and education-based programs, volunteer opportunities, and interactive public events.
