ACTIVITY GUIDE FALL 2015


Director’s Message It has been an amazing summer in Menlo Park where thousands of children and adults were getting active through our wide array of summer camps, classes, leagues and programs. Whether it’s in the crystal clear waters of the Belle Haven Pool or through the excitement of our Menlo Madness camps, one thing is for sure – we strive to create a high quality experience for everyone in our programs. This summer we celebrated the second full year of our 100% satisfaction guaranteed refund policy. We want all our participants to know that we stand behind our programs and are so confident you will have a quality experience that we will refund your fees if you are not fully satisfied with your experience. We are implementing several new internal improvements in order to support this guarantee:

STAFF’S NEW LOOK

The next step in operating and maintaining world class facilities and world class programming is for our team members to have a world class, professional look. We want all our staff to be recognizable and when you see us, we want you to know we are here and ready to make sure your experience is as good as it can be. Look for our new staff shirts and professional dress standards which began on July 1.

YOU’RE WELCOME!

Walmart does it; Safeway does it; why not Menlo Park Community Services? We believe our front desk staff are top notch and not only should greet you when you enter a Menlo Park building but should know your name and make sure you are having a great experience in our programs. So, look for a stepped up presence from our front desk team and don’t be surprised if they ask you if you found everything you needed! We always encourage your feedback on our performance and our customer service and would enjoy hearing from you about your experiences.

Commission Spotlight The Parks and Recreation Commission is charged with advising the City Council on matters related to City programs and facilities dedicated to recreation. This general charge includes advising on: •

Regardless of ability, Chess Wizards makes chess fun for all!

Community Services Department GROUP PIANO CLASSES FOR CHILDREN

MELODY’S TODD-O-PIANO BASICS

Learning to play the piano is FUN! We believe that piano lessons should be enjoyable and productive, not dull and isolated. By putting our students into small groups at the beginning levels, we give them a chance to share learning experience with others. This creates a built-in support team of friends and stimulates children to practice. Students are grouped according to their age and ability. Activities include music-oriented games, EZ music theory, and ear-training. Classes are progressive. Each student has an access to piano or keyboard in class, however, a piano or keyboard is needed to practice at home. We hold a recital at the end of the session. A $25 material fee is payable to instructor on the first day of class. Classes with 3 students will be reduced to 35 minutes. No class 11/27.

MAM Todd-o-Piano is a new approach to lead toddlers into musical world with a pre-piano/keyboard lesson introducing music terminology, keyboard playing and rhythm training using a storytelling method. The class prepares students for future piano lessons by developing musicality and movement ability. Note that parent participation is REQUIRED.

Our preschool program offers a range of motor skills designed to encourage whole body exercise, strength development, and coordination. It has been proven that gymnastics activities help children develop the foundation for learning the skills necessary to read. Classes are structured in order to provide a fun, nurturing, safe environment in which all children have the same opportunity to participate and learn at their own pace. DAYS

KinderStars is a parent participation class that is slightly more structured than KinderGym. In this transitional class the caregiver helps the child to follow directions, stay with the group and participate in class activities. The goal of this class is to prepare the child for a successful transition into the NewStars class. This is a great class for parents of children who want to participate in a gymnastics class together and feel the child is too old for KinderGym. TIMES

Community Services Department MINISTARS

SUPERSTARS

MiniStars are introduced to a number of skills. Through the course of the class some of the skills will be mastered while others will require more strength before this occurs. This is also a time of rapid growth for children, balance and coordination will be consistently worked on. Participants will continue to work on turn taking and following a series of directions. MiniStars is a non-parent participation class.

In the SuperStars class we build on our fundamental skills that we have learned in the two previous classes. Cartwheels and handstands are re-introduced with more emphasis on form. More floor exercise skills are introduced as many of these are the foundation for the more advanced skill progressions in gymnastics. The goal of the class is to prepare students to continue on to Level A. SuperStars is a non-parent participation class.

JOINT POINT ◊ FOREVER FIT This class has been called many things since its beginnings as an experimental “posture class” for dancers at the Perry Mansfield Dance Camp in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Marianne Crowder taught it for over 50 years in and around Menlo Park and eventually called it “Mariantics”. This is a “no pain, no sweat” exercise form, with strong roots in modern dance and liberally sprinkled with exercises designed to correct bad posture and its negative effects. Why Joint Point? Because the joint is the point of so many of these exercises. Of course, the muscles are involved, but this class is not about strength training or building aerobic capacity–it is all about feeling really good! Cyndi Jung, long-time student and admirer of founder Marianne Crowder, has been teaching since 2009. $10 drop-in fee. For details, call (650) 678-5487. No class 9/28, 10/19, 11/9, 11/30.

The art of Xingyiquan, or Form-Intention Boxing, is famous throughout China, both for the health and longevity of its practitioners and for its effectiveness in combat. One of the four “internal arts” of Chinese boxing, Xingyi emphasizes breath work and postural training to develop relaxed whole-body power. Students are introduced to Shen Long Xingyiquan (Spirit Dragon Form-Intention Boxing), Gao-Style Baguazhang, as well as other concepts through conditioning exercises and training drills, and practicing “stillness in movement; movement in stillness.” This class is a vigorous workout that balances and strengthens the body, improves coordination and flexibility, and increases mental clarity and relaxation. In addition to the class fee, students are required to maintain membership in the North American Tang Shou Tao Association ($100 annually). For more information about NATSTA, visit www.natsta.org.
