New Lenox Community Park District As usual, the 12 weeks of summer came and went with a blink of an eye, and the warm weeks of October were a welcome transition into the winter months. Before I highlight some of the new recreational programs we have to offer, I have some “I Can’t Believe It” news to share with you. On October 3, 2011, Gov. Pat Quinn announced that the New Lenox Community Park District was one of 22 communities statewide that will benefit from the “Illinois Jobs Now” Capital Construction Program. The New Lenox Community Park District, as grant sponsor on behalf of the Lincolnway Special Recreation Association, along with our co-op partners, Frankfort, Manhattan, Mokena and Peotone Park Districts, submitted a $2.5 million grant back in November 2010 to build a recreation center for the Lincolnway Special Recreation Association. I can’t believe it, we got it! This new $4.5 million recreation facility will be built on the south side of New Lenox and will serve all the residents from the five park districts that have special needs participants. This recreation center, along with the $372,000 grant from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources “OSLAD” program that we received to redevelop the Countryview/Royal Meadows Park, means that over $5 million of new construction will take place within the New Lenox Community Park District borders over the next two years and at No Additional Cost to the Taxpayers! Through planning, saving, grant money and support from our local legislators down in Springfield, these two important projects will finally become a reality. Look for a Grand Opening for both of these projects sometime in 2013. We will be sure to keep you updated on the progress. Some of the new recreational programs that I would like to highlight include: • Polar Bear Pool Party Plunge ~ A FREE Family Event. • Famous Author Family Reading Night ~ A FREE Family Event sponsored by your local Target store. • Numerous Fishing Programs ~ Most of which are FREE, thanks to our “Take Me Fishing Grant” sponsored by the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation together with the National Recreation and Parks Association • Drop-in programs at your local high schools, designed to keep your teens, adults and families active this winter. These are just a few of the many recreational programs that your park district has to offer. Please take a minute to browse through this catalog and choose a program that peaks your interest. You’ll be glad you did! Be healthy and stay active! Brian Fischer President

Please Note:

A mandatory sign-in and sign-out procedure for all participants is required for all Park District Programs.

Register Now…Don’t Delay! Program limits will be adhered to. If you wait too long, the class may be full or cancelled due to low enrollment.

Early Childhood Program Requirements • Children must be the correct age by 9/1/11, unless otherwise specified. In order to provide your child with the best possible recreational and/or learning experience, all of our programs are planned according to the ages listed in our brochure. • Classes are for child attending only, except for classes with an adult. Parents should not remain in the classroom or gymnasium after dropping off their child. This is in the child’s best interest, as continual interruptions tend to affect participant’s attention span and inhibit the establishment of peer relationships. • All children must be potty-trained, unless they are attending a class where an adult stays with them or otherwise stated in the class description. Diapers are not permitted in independent classes unless stated in the class description. • Please do not bring food to any class, unless previously arranged. • For your children’s safety, all children enrolled in preschool-age programs must be picked up from the specific classroom or program site by their parents or designated guardian. No child will be released from the classroom to anyone other than these individuals. • A mandatory sign-in and sign-out procedure for all participants is required for all Park District Programs.

Kiddie Kampus 2012-2013

Ages 3-4 (as of 9/1/12) Resident Registration Date: Saturday, March 24 8:00-11:00am (Doors open at 7:00am) LCC (Room 1) Entry C Out-of-District Registration begins Monday, April 2 We have devised a payment plan to make it easier for our Kiddie Kampus parents in this challenging economy. At time of registration, we are asking for a non-refundable $50 registration fee along with a tee-shirt fee of $10 (if needed) and your first month’s tuition. The next payment will not be due until Sept. 15, 2012. Subsequent fees are then divided into 8 equal monthly payments, due by the 15th of the previous month. A late fee of $15 will be accessed to any account that payment had not been made by that date. Payment-in-full would still be accepted if that would better suit your needs. We will waive the $50 registration fee to all accounts paid in full on the day of registration.

What does Kiddie Kampus offer its participants? Children learn many things before going to kindergarten. The New Lenox Community Park District offers preschool classes designed to develop social, emotional and physical skills to ensure school readiness. A child’s separation from parents and involvement with a non-family member is one of many major steps towards his/her development. Kiddie Kampus provides a safe and supportive environment for your child’s first school experience while increasing his/her self-esteem and confidence through age appropriate instruction. Covered during the year are color, shape and number recognition, an introduction to number concepts and letter recognition. Your child’s quest for learning will be nurtured through creative play, building friendships, working individually and cooperating as part of a group. These activities promote patience, sharing and the awareness that there is a whole world of people surrounding and supporting them. Songs, stories, activities and games are used for reinforcement and fun.

What requirements are necessary for Kiddie Kampus registration? 1. A copy of your child’s birth certificate MUST be provided at registration. A child must be four (three for the 3 year old program), on or before Sept. 1, 2012 and must be able to handle bathroom hygiene independently (potty trained, no diapers). It is very helpful if the child is able to zip/button independently. 2. A $50.00 non-refundable registration fee, $10.00 T-shirt fee and first month’s tuition will be collected, beginning Saturday, March 24, 2012 from 8:00am-11:00pm, when you pre-register your child. 3. A voter’s card or tax bill is required at registration for verification of residency. Our Kiddie Kampus follows New Lenox School District #122’s calendar year for all full days off except for our winter break. Kiddie Kampus ends Dec. 8 and/or Dec. 9 for the winter session. We resume classes on Jan. 5, 2013.
