GREETINGS FROM YOUR NEW LENOX COMMUNITY PARK DISTRICT! As I have in the past, I would like to start off this letter by thanking all of you who came out for this year’s Proud American Days festival this past July. As always, it’s the general public, along with sponsors, vendors, local community groups, Walmart and Menards that make Proud American Days an event that can be enjoyed by children and adults of all ages. A special highlight from Proud American Days was when our provider of carnival rides, Windy City Amusements, was honored with a plaque for their past 40 years of high quality service. Thank you Windy City Amusements for your continued support. Let’s turn our attention to what’s new in your Recreation Department. As usual, we will be offering a large selection of programs during the upcoming winter months. But I want to highlight a new asset that all of our Park District participants can use - our “Monthly Newsletter”. This Newsletter, which will be emailed mid-month, will contain such items as: upcoming special events and programs, reminders of important dates such as registration sign-up and time and designating a specific park as “Park of the Month”. To sign up for the newsletter, visit newlenoxparks.org, and on the right-hand side of the home page there is a section where you can click to join the mailing list. NEWS FLASH! Bucky the Beaver, your Park District Official Mascot, is starting a fan club! I am really excited about this new attribute to the Park District, and I hope you are, too! Besides educating our community about the S.T.O.P. (Stop Trashing Our Parks) Program, Bucky Fan Club members will have access to giveaways, raffles, monthly activities, exclusive parties and opportunities for early registration for programs. Registration for Bucky the Beaver Fan Club will start in 2018. Lastly, I want to talk about a new addition to one of your parks. On September 11, 2017, we unveiled a new memorial at Freedom Park, located in the Liberty Square Subdivision. This memorial is dedicated to all members of the Armed Services, Domestic Law Enforcement and First Responders from Will County, Illinois, who since September 11, 2001, have given their time and their lives to protect Americans from threats, both foreign and domestic. What makes this memorial so special is that a young man, Brett Hyink from BSA Troop 49, spent the last three years planning, working with your Park District Officials, securing volunteers and donations and ultimately executed the building of this memorial for his Eagle Scout Project. The effort and passion that went into erecting this memorial is a direct reflection of the strong character that Brett possesses. Brett’s work ethic, his leadership and sense of community involvement is a testimonial of the values that the Boy Scouts of America organization instills in our young men.

Sincerely, Brian Fischer Park Board President

Program Requirements • Children must be the correct age by 9/1/17, 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. • Although your child may turn the correct age during a second session of a program, our age requirement date coincides with the school district’s date to assist with the fundamental growth of the child in the ageappropriate programs and therefore would not be eligible for registration. • Classes are for the 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.

KIDDIE KAMPUS

What does Kiddie Kampus offer its participants?

28

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.

Due to priority registration of current 3 year-old Kiddie Kampus participants, there are limited spots available in the 4-year-old Kiddie Kampus program.

AGE

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 September 1, 2018 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 non-refundable registration fee, first month’s tuition, along with a T-shirt fee of $10 (if needed) will be collected beginning March 10 from 8:00am-11:00am while preregistering your child. The remainder of the fees are then divided into eight equal monthly payments. All payments are due on the 15th of the month, beginning September 15. A late fee of $25 will be assessed to any account that is delinquent.

Monday, February 19, 6:30pm-7:30pm Lions Community Center (Entry C)

YOUTH PROGRAMS Mindfulness & Me

Ages 5-8 Administration Building (All-Purpose Room)

LEGO® Cranium Contraptions

So often we ask our children to “pay attention,” but we don’t teach them how. Growing up in a “plugged-in” and screenfocused world leaves little or no time for children to learn how to pay attention or just be present. In this five week class, parents and children will become connected to the lifelong practice of mindfulness (the space between stimulus and response). Mindfulness can help with difficult emotions or focus. We will cover mindful breath, body awareness, listening, heartfulness, generosity and thoughts. Each class includes music, story and craft time and a journal response—all contributing to a practice that can positively impact children’s lives in and outside of school. Each week, parents will receive take-home materials to help continue the mindfulness practice at home. This class is not a course in meditation.

Build and explore crazy contraptions that really work your brain. Students use LEGO® Bricks, axels, pulleys, gears and motors to create fun and interactive models. Compete with friends in a rousing game of Battle Tops or Foosball. Put your hand-eye coordination to the test with the Ping Pong Popper model. Experiment with the Mini Fig Mover to see how this model will send your mini fig for a ride. All this and more are waiting to be discovered as students learn and play with Cranium Contraptions! Every child takes home a custom LEGO® minifigure at the end of the last class.

FITNESS

When it comes to body-sculpting, Zumba Toning raises the bar (or rather, the toning stick). It combines targeted exercises and high-energy cardio work with Latin-infused moves. The first 30 minutes of class will be Zumba Toning and the second 30 minutes of class will be Zumba. Toning sticks are required for this class. Participants can bring their own toning sticks or can purchase toning sticks at $20 per set from the instructor.

Hatha Yoga is used to create balance in the body and the mind. This is accomplished by looking to the eight limbs of yoga including asana (physical movement) and pranayama (breathing exercises). During the course, we will discover how the linking of physical movement and breath work can begin to slow the mind and release stress. This class is great for people who are looking to decompress from their day and need low impact exercises that will still build strength. All levels of experience and flexibility are welcome! For your comfort, please come to class on an empty stomach (eat two hours before class) and wear loose fitting clothing. Please bring your own yoga mat, strap and a water bottle to class.

These requests will only be honored if the request is submitted THREE BUSINESS DAYS prior to the start of the program or activity. • All refunds less than $10 will be applied as a credit to the customer’s account. • A $30 NSF fee will be added for all returned checks. • Every effort will be made to process refunds within 30 days, but in some instances it may take longer.

LIABILITY

Participants are expected to exhibit appropriate behavior at all times. The following guidelines have been developed to help make Park District programs safe and enjoyable for all participants. Additional rules may be developed for particular programs and athletic leagues as deemed necessary by staff.

The New Lenox Community Park District is unable to assume responsibility for injuries, accidents or loss of personal property occurring during programs or activities, in parks or facilities. Such insurance would make programs and user fees prohibitive. It is recommended that participants make provisions to provide this coverage through their family insurance program.

• Show respect to participants and staff; take direction from staff. • Refrain from using abusive or foul language, or from causing bodily harm to self, other participants, or staff. • Show respect to equipment, supplies, and facilities. The New Lenox Community Park District reserves the right to terminate a party’s participation in a Park District program due to that party’s disruptive behavior or conduct.

SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM If you are (1) a New Lenox Park District resident and (2) cannot participate for financial reasons, you may be eligible for financial aid. Please contact the Park District’s Deputy Director of Recreation at 815.485.3584 for an interview. Please note that the maximum household scholarship benefit is $1,000 per year.
