detAils you should Know... before you enroll! GENERAL POLICIES ABOUT PARTICIPATION IN PARKS & RECREATION PROGRAMS AGES INDICATED

SPECTATORS

MAKEUPS

Children must be the age indicated on or before the FIRST class session.

One of the fundamental instructional program goals is to provide your child with a fun and positive learning opportunity with their peers while developing separation skills. Parents are welcome to observe the last scheduled class of the semester. (Exception: Swim lessons, spectators are permitted on the first day also.) For the best instructional atmosphere, observation of other class sessions is not permitted. Please feel free to discuss your child’s progress before and after class with the instructor.

Classes missed for individual absences (ie: illness, vacations, etc.) are not “made up” nor may participants attend classes other than the one they are registered for.

SELF-CARE In classes where caregivers are not required, children must be able to provide self-care in a group setting (ie: able to wash hands and use restroom facilities without assistance).

STARTING & ENDING CLASS TIMES Our instructors need time to open facilities and prepare for your class. Please provide proper supervision as children “dropped off” before classes start will not be supervised by our staff. Instructors will call their class and take attendance, parents should wait until this has taken place before leaving. Classes will end as scheduled. Instructors are either preparing for the next class or closing the facility; your promptness in picking up your child is necessary. Please do not arrive prior to 10 minutes before the start of your class as the locker rooms or class room may not be open before this time. If your program involves use of locker rooms, plan to depart no later than 10 minutes after the scheduled conclusion of your program.

• Parent/Child classes

The spectator policy remains the same. Please make arrangements for siblings as they will not be permitted in the program location and may not be left unsupervised in hallway or locker room areas. • Adult classes Please make arrangements for your children as they will not be permitted in the program location and may not be left unsupervised in hallways or locker room areas.

WAITING AREAS Most facilities have a designated spot where parents may wait during classes. Please help us keep the privilege of use of these facilities by not wandering around the buildings, no food or drink, and please keep siblings under supervision.

ROUND UP SPONSORSHIPS The Department does not wish to exclude any City of Greenfield youth from participation on the basis of their ability to pay. There is an opportunity during registration to donate to help this cause by “rounding up” your registration fee to provide financial assistance for those unable to afford program fees for youth programs. A donation line is included on the registration form – you can donate any amount you see fit by adding the amount to your program fee total. Persons who feel they are unable to afford the cost of a youth activity may apply for a reduction of fees utilizing the “Round Up” Sponsorship donations which help fund these requests. City of Greenfield residents may apply for financial assistance by contacting the Parks & Recreation Department office at least one week prior to registering for youth programs.

TWEEN/TEEN JAZZ AND TAP COMBO (Ages 11-18 years) Jazz dance is a combination of several dance forms and is usually expressed through popular music.

Please inquire about dance shoes at first class.

wheels on the bus GREEN MEADOWS FARM Preschoolers (Ages 31/2- K5) accompanied by parent/ caregiver Join us as we travel (by school bus) to Green Meadows Farm. With more than 200 animals, we will learn about pigs, cows, goats, sheep, chickens, turkeys, ducks, donkeys, llamas and more. Everyone can milk a cow, take a tractor-drawn hayride and the children can have a pony ride. Enjoy this up close, first-hand experience with farm animals. Bring a bag lunch and beverage, as after our activities, we’ll stay and have lunch “on the farm”. Thursday, October 18 2792.120 Departure: School bus leaves Greendale Municipal Parking Lot (Parking Street) at 9:15 AM Destination: Green Meadows Farm in Waterford for 10:00 AM program Return to: Municipal Parking Lot by 1:30 PM $13/ $23 Non-Resident (per person) Time Out: Mon., Oct. 8th Note: Children must be accompanied by a supervising adult to participate in this field trip. (The adult and child must each register and pay the indicated fee-adults may supervise more than one child.) Due to state law, children under the age of 3 are not permitted to ride on a school bus.

Hey all you little “sprouts”, bring your favorite adult for a great time! We will read about The Vanishing Pumpkin, One Little…Two Little…Three Little Pilgrims ….all while sampling your creative concoctions each time. Please indicate, at time of registration, any food allergies the student may have. Session I - The Vanishing Pumpkin by Tony Johnston. An old man and woman go out to their garden to pick a very special pumpkin. But wait! The pumpkin has vanished! They must find it, but where? Session II - One Little, Two Little, Three Little Pilgrims by B. G. Hennessy. Ten little Pilgrims and ten little Wampanoag boys and girls are getting ready for the harvest feast. In colonial Plymouth, the young Pilgrims hunt ducks and geese and dig up turnips and carrots. In a nearby village, the Wampanoag children dig for clams, fish for cod, and gather nuts and berries. Finally, it's time for the meal. Turkey, cornbread, cranberry stuffing, pumpkin, and Indian pudding are all on the menu-yum! First, everyone gives thanks, and then it's time to eat and celebrate. Session III - Christmas Mice! by Bethany Roberts. In this simple, rhymed story, mice joyfully bounce through their holiday preparations, decorating their house, wrapping presents, trimming their tree, baking cookies, and singing "Jingle Bells." Suddenly they see footprints- their old enemy, the cat, is lurking nearby! But all ends well in this story of peace and brotherhood.

Classes will be conducted by Joe Peterson & Staff, Chosun Black Belt Academy

LITTLE NINJA’S Youth (Ages 3-5 years) Little Ninja’s is an easy-to understand class for the younger child to gain the benefits of Tae Kwon Do. There will be emphasis placed on the physical techniques so the participant’s body can begin growing with the movements and burn up energy. The very basics will be taught with additions of important outside - aspects for children such as stranger self-defense and lost in the store safety.

CHILDREN Youth (ages 6-12 years) Children’s Tae Kwon Do is great for development of self-discipline and physical fitness. Children who learn Tae Kwon Do also benefit from increased self-esteem, more confidence and assertiveness, more focus and concentration, better discipline and self-control, respect for authority, self-defense and physical activity. Children who study this art will learn when it is okay to use it as the code. The martial artist forbids unfair assaults or unnecessary use of force so it is for emergencies only.

TEEN/ADULT (Ages 13+) Tae Kwon Do is great for mental, physical and spiritual development. Become more flexible, agile, and physically stronger while increasing balance. For a Tae Kwon Do practitioner, his entire body is his weapon, defending easily against all aggressors with their hands, fists, elbows, knees and feet.

NEW STUDENTS OPEN HOUSE Monday 8:15-8:45 PM September 10 or October 29 Take this opportunity to meet the instructor with your child and learn what takes place in the classroom — activities, Korean customs, and rules of etiquette. Pick-up literature that will help your child feel more comfortable as he/she takes part in this exciting program designed to develop better children, stronger students and responsible citizens. This is highly recommended for NEW participants.

Girls self-defense seminAr Girls (Ages 9-15) Chosun Black Belt Academy staff, Instructors Every girl should learn some self-defense, BEFORE they need it. Self-defense comes in all different types however. Sometimes it’s physical, but many times it’s mental and emotional. In this course we will cover how girls can physically defend themselves against some common attacks, in addition to giving them their strongest weapon against mental and emotional assaults – KNOWLEDGE. We will introduce and talk about topics such as mental attitude, exercise and diet, self-image, academics and health.

Little Ninja’s (Ages 3-5)

This class is designed for students with NO experience in the martial arts. It is set up to help females to utilize the same basic movement for MANY scenarios. This movement is something that is a part of our everyday life, since we were infants, so it makes it easy to remember and to use. In self-defense scenarios, a quick, simple solution is the key. Not only will the victim be able to use this movement to defend herself, but she will be WILLING to do so, a key factor that many victims assume will be easy. By the end of the class, students will see that the movement makes sense, it’s easy to do and students will be willing to do it. Isn’t your safety worth two hours?

It has a strange order of cards because the peasants in Europe were disgruntled with the kings, so in their card games they gave the kings a lower rank. Queens, Jacks, and diamonds (a symbol of wealth) were made trump. Here’s an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of rules and strategies of this popular card game.

Are you concerned about the future of public recreation programming and facilities in Greenfield? If so, Partners of Parks & Recreation, Inc. is for you!

WHAT IS “PARTNERS OF PARKS & RECREATION”? A nonprofit community support group run in conjunction with the Department of Parks & Recreation.

WHY BECOME A “PARTNER”? To be part of a group that promotes the following mission statement: To assist the Department of Parks & Recreation in the beautification of green space, purchase of park amentities, and development of park site activity areas for the benefit of the Greenfield community. Partners of Greenfield Parks & Recreation, Inc. is an avenue for individuals to make a positive difference in the promotion of public recreation in our city.

*Co-sponsored by the Greenfield Partners of Parks and Recreation *In cooperation with the City Engineering Department 4 Do you have a “right of way” tree that is scheduled for removal due to a street improvement project? 4 Are you considering removal of any trees on your private property? 4 Or, would you like to just find a new home for your tree, where people of all ages can enjoy it for many years come? If you answered YES to any of the given questions, please consider our “Dedicate to Relocate” Park Tree Program. The program is simple: if you have a healthy tree, between 10’-25’ in height, that needs to be removed, or you desire to have removed, please call us first! We will evaluate if the tree(s) can be relocated and utilized within a city park. Relocation expenses will be assumed by the Department of Parks and Recreation; however, special recognition will be given to those persons who sponsor the entire or partial cost of tree relocation. So if tree removal is in your future... please consider “Dedicate to Relocate” and contact the Department office.

HOW TO BECOME A “PARTNER”

nondiscrimination Policy

lesson observation/ visitors day In an effort to better promote a positive learning environment for programs, only registered participants are permitted in the classroom area. Our instructors welcome the opportunity to discuss participant’s progress with parents after class. The final instructional class may be observed by parents unless special dates are scheduled by the instructors.

cooperative Programming What does this mean? When you see this symbol, it means this program is being made available as part of a cooperative programming agreement with other local departments or agencies. Individually, each department or agency may not have the facility or instructor or enrollment necessary to offer the program. In working together, the cooperative departments are able to better serve the needs of their residents by expanded program opportunities.

new Program ideas The Department of Parks & Recreation is always receptive to suggestions for the development of “new” program offerings. Please feel free to give us a call with your ideas.

It is the policy of the City of Greenfield Department of Parks and Recreation that no person shall, on the basis of race, color or disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any City of greenfield sponsored program, activity or employment. Pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act, the City of Greenfield will make every reasonable effort to accommodate persons with disabilities in the provision of City services, programs or activities. If you require special accommodation in order to participate, please inform us when you register.

If you have lost or misplaced an item in one of our parks or program facilities, please contact the Parks & Recreation Department office. Articles that are found and turned into the office are kept for 60 days. After that period of time, the items are donated to a local charitable organization. The Department of Parks & Recreation and related facility providers are not responsible for any lost or stolen items.

school district cooperation

tyPo, we Goofed?

The Department of Parks & Recreation would like to thank both the Greenfield School District and the Whitnall School District for their support and cooperation with facility scheduling.

insurance/liability The City of Greenfield does not provide hospital/medical insurance coverage for persons participating in sponsored activities and cannot assume responsibility for injury to any participants in its recreation programs. Participants are encouraged to obtain their own insurance coverage prior to the start of the program and to consult with a physician before participating in any strenuous activity.

GENERAL INFORMATION

lost and found

Occasionally there may be an error in days, times, registration requirements, locations or fees. When such errors occur, our staff will do everything possible to correct the situation promptly. The department reserves the right to change program schedules as needed to accommodate demand or school use conflicts. Read your receipt carefully as any changes since the printing of this RECREATOR will be noted there.

employment opportunities Persons interested in obtaining part-time/ seasonal employment with the Department of Parks & Recreation should complete an employment application form at the department office. Openings for positions as lifeguards, officials, program supervisors, and instructors for various programs are usually filled from current applications on file. Qualified applicants will be contacted for an interview as openings become available.

Park & recreation board meetings The City of Greenfield Department of Parks & Recreation is a governmental agency established for the purpose of providing and managing public recreation programs, facilities and park/open spaces for the community. The Department is governed by appointed board members who serve as a policy making body. Regular Park and Recreation Board meetings are generally held on the LAST Thursday of each month (exception: November and December regular meetings are held on the THIRD Thursday of the month) at 7:00 PM at the Greenfield City Hall, 7325 W Forest Home Avenue. Agendas and minutes are available at www.greenfieldwi.us. Click on “calendars/meetings/agendas” for information on meeting dates, times and location. Residents are invited to attend and are welcome to make suggestions or comments.

Photographs For program promotion purposes, from time to time photographs will be taken of participants. If you do not wish to have your photo taken, please tell the photographer and/or class instructor.

non-resident Policy Definition: In the case of non-resident participation, it is generally accepted that non-resident users should contribute an additional fee to offset their non-tax status. A non-resident is defined as a person who does not reside or own property within the corporate limits of the City of Greenfield ( in general, does not directly contribute to City of Greenfield property taxes). User Fee Surcharge: Persons defined as a nonresident of the City of Greenfield are required to remit double (100% surcharge) the adopted resident program/service fee (i.e. resident fee of $10 = non-resident fee of $20). Non-residents who falsely register, shall forfeit their privilege to participate and any related fees collected will be retained by the Department (no refund given). Exception to non-resident user fee/surcharge: • Non-residents who reside within the Whitnall School District will not be assessed a non-resident surcharge when registering for any specific program or league that utilizes Whitnall School District facilities. • Non-residents employed by the City of Greenfield (and spouse; children within immediate household) are exempt from any nonresident related surcharges. • Persons who pay partial City of Greenfield property taxes, are entitled to a prorated nonresident surcharge based on the percentage of their City of Greenfield tax contribution in relation to their overall property tax bill (payment to other City/Village/ Township entities). In example: If 20% of your overall property tax bill is paid to the City of Greenfield, your non-resident surcharge rate would be 80% (i.e., resident fee of $10 = adjusted non-resident fee of $18).

However, the department does not wish to exclude any City of Greenfield youth from participation on the basis of ability to pay. Persons who feel they are unable to afford the cost of a youth activity (i.e. unemployment, long term illness or other hardships) may apply for a reduction or waiver of fee and should contact the Parks & Recreation Office prior to program registration. B - The City of Greenfield charges a $25 fee for checks that are returned as un-collectable by our bank. C - Program fees are not pro-rated.

cancellations 1. If unanticipated school educational or athletic programming forces program cancellation, all registered participants will be notified. (postcard, note on receipt, phone call, etc.) 2.

(If the program is being held at a Greendale location, please call the Greendale Park & Recreation 24 hour hotline at 297-9365.) 3.

If poor weather conditions develop within 90 minutes of the activity/event, report to the site if in doubt. Remember all sites are unique and activities may be conducted or modified. 5. Once at a program site, decisions concerning the cancellation or discontinuation of the activity will be in the judgment of the site supervisor/leader or game official. 6. Every attempt will be made to reschedule a canceled activity. Notification will be given to program participants.

Program satisfaction transfer Policy The department will do their best to accommodate your transfer request (move from one program or session to another). The following policy guidelines will apply: A - Transfer request for persons 17 years of age and under will only be accepted if initiated/authorized by parent or legal guardian. B - Registrants will be charged for program sessions that have been held prior to date of transfer request. C - Phone transfer requests will be accepted through “Time Out” dates.

set instone

leave your mark on Greenfield history In 2006, Bi-Centennial Park (51st & Layton, near the Law Enforcement Center and NEW Library) officially became a City park. As part of our 50th Celebration Legacy Project, a fountain was placed in the park as a centerpiece. Other park features include flag-poles and a stone marker, all framed by a beautiful garden and landscaping. The outer area surrounding the fountain will be paved with bricks, providing you a unique opportunity to make a lasting mark to: • Commemorate your family’s place in Greenfield History • Honor a family member, friend or associate • Celebrate a special occasion/event

• Remember a loved one • Recognize an achievement • Promote your business

The bricks are engraved using a laser process that will penetrate, melt and crystallize the clay brick, resulting in a permanent engraving.
