SPECTATORS

ROUND UP SPONSORSHIPS

ALL persons are required to register PRIOR to participation in ANY program. Registrations and fees cannot be handled at the sites by instructors or any staff members. Please be prepared to show your receipt at the first class session. Instructors have the authority to disallow participation until proof is given.

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.

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.

Registration Information (page 62) Enrollment Forms (pages 63 & 65) AGES INDICATED Children must be the age indicated on or before the FIRST class session.

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.

General Information & Department policies (pages 58/59) • Lost & Found • Waiting Lists • Photographs • Insurance/Liability

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.

MAKEUPS 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.

We believe that age is just a number — and the only measure worth taking is the quality of our life. That is the attitude that this group is all about. The Greenfield Parks & Recreation Older Adults Program provides fitness opportunities, trips, special events, arts, social gatherings, luncheons, services, and laughter—all part of the excitement that awaits you.

wAlK with ConfidenCe Vickie Strachota, Arthritis Foundation Certified Instructor Myth: Exercise puts me at risk of falling down. Fact: Regular exercise, by building strength and stamina, prevents loss of bone mass and improves balance, actually reducing your risk of falling. Walk With Confidence is a structured social walking program that offers support to help participants develop successful exercise routines. Little by little, you will see improvements as you begin to strengthen muscle and improve balance–both important in staying active and avoiding falls. The program is designed for people with or without arthritis and can even be modified to meet the needs of individual participants so that each person can develop an exercise routine that fits their unique goals.

LITTLE NINJAS 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.

Greenfield DPW/ Forestry Will Begin Treating Ash Trees Against EAB

Announces Their Spring Programs!

Dennis Fermenich, Consulting City Forester The city will begin treating a limited number of ash trees on city streets and in parks. Greenfield has several neighborhoods where ash trees were planted before EAB (emerald ash borer), was discovered in North America and we feel treatment is essential to preserving the quality of those neighborhoods. Reports from EAB infested communities in Michigan and elsewhere tells us to expect 100% of the untreated ash trees to die from this pest within 13 years after introduction. Although EAB was officially documented in Greenfield in 2013, it appears that some EAB activity (insect galleries) in Greenfield may be as much as 7 years old. Once introduced, as the EAB population gradually builds; it takes 9 years to kill the first 20% of the ash trees. After that time the EAB population reaches a flash point and the remaining ash begin to die at a rate of 20% each year until all of the untreated trees are dead. Let me repeat: 100% of the untreated ash are expected to die from this pest within 13 years after introduction. If your right of way ash is not part of the treatment program, the city will allow you to hire a professional to treat it for you but at your expense. Because funds are so limited, the city will only be treating the best of the ash trees and only where their loss would have the greatest effect on the street or neighborhood. If you own an ash and want to keep it, START TREATING IT NOW!

The Greenfield Beautification Committee will sponsor three main events this Spring; all are open to city residents to participate. • Arbor Day Celebration -Saturday May 3rd, 2014 Once again the Committee will organize a celebration for Arbor Day with tree and shrub planting at BrooksideMeadow Drive Park (4995 S.

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.

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 attend either a Greenfield

or Whitnall School District School will be assessed at the resident rate. • 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).

leave your mark on Greenfield history

As part of the City’s 50th Celebration Legacy Project in 2006, a fountain was placed in Bi-Centennial Park (51st & Layton, near the Law Enforcement Center, Fire Station and Library) as a centerpiece. Other features include flag poles, benches, and a stone marker, all framed by a beautiful garden and landscaping. The outer area surrounding the fountain is paved with bricks, providing a unique opportunity to make a lasting mark to: • Remember a loved one • Recognize an achievement • Promote your business

• Commemorate your family’s place in Greenfield History • Honor a family member, friend or associate • Celebrate a special occasion/event

The bricks are engraved using a laser process that will penetrate, melt and crystallize the clay brick, resulting in a permanent engraving. The money raised from this project will help fund numerous projects within the City of Greenfield Parks & Recreation Department.
