GREETINGS FROM YOUR NEW LENOX COMMUNITY PARK DISTRICT! Time flies and every year I think “Where did the summer go?” Well your Park District and Sanctuary Golf Course staff didn’t rest this year. There was some tough weather this year, but the staff was hard at work this past Summer. The parks in your neighborhoods look beautiful, and The Sanctuary is in top-notch shape. As you look through the Fall Program Guide, I would like to point out a few new programs that are being offered. Do you want your child to learn more about cooking? Try the “Helping Hands” cooking classes for youth. We will be offering Bento 101, Knife Basics and Holiday Meals that will turn your young one into a chef at home, and will teach them some new tips and tricks around the kitchen. In addition to some of the longstanding Adult Programs we provide, this Fall we have an Adult 2-on-2 Sand Volleyball League (you might want to register early!) that will run from the end of August until mid-October. Now that we have the kids and adults covered, are you looking for a family event? Try our new event “It’s a Life-size Party!” During this special event, families will be playing in a Bubble Soccer Tournament, along with playing many other life-size games. This event is sure to provide fun for the whole family! The Sanctuary Golf Course was as busy as ever this Summer. The warm weather kept the Driving Range packed with new and experienced golfers, and outings kept The Sanctuary staff very busy. Even though Summer is coming to a close, make sure to check The Sanctuary website for available Fall Driving Range and tee times! Your Parks-Maintenance Staff has been hard at work all Summer, too. We opened a beautiful new park – Prairie Ridge Park. If you haven’t checked it out yet, I highly recommend that you do so! Also, if you’ll notice near the end of the Program Guide, there is a listing of all 38 park sites that your Park District has to offer. All of the parks have different amenities including playground equipment, shelters available for rental, basketball courts, soccer fields and so much more. Without a great hard-working staff and extremely supportive community, these amazing parks would not be possible. So when you look through the list of parks, why not try a new park today? Meet new people and see why New Lenox is a great community to live in.

Sincerely Ted Schulz Park Board President

Programs Offered

• Children must be the correct age by 9/1/18, 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. • 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 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 is required for all participants enrolled in any Park District program. Children must be accompanied by an adult when being escorted to and from class. • For first time registrations, each child’s birth certificate must be presented to verify age. • Classes that require a parent and child to attend are shown with this icon: • The Park District runs programs for the community through a partnership with different businesses. They provide knowledgeable and background-checked instructors who will be directing each program. Classes that are contracted are shown with this icon:

KIDDIE KAMPUS

2018-2019

Registration began on Saturday, March 10

Ages 3-4 (as of 9/1/18)

Limited space available.

What requirements are necessary for Kiddie Kampus registration?

Meet & Greet Days for Participants Thursday, September 6 and Friday, September 7

Classes begin the week of September 10, 2018 through May 17, 2019

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.

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 while registering 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. 3. If you pay your full tuition payment at time of registration, the $50 non-refundable registration fee will be waived. 4. 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 is still in session when there is a half-day for New Lenox School District 122.

Liability

• Every effort will be made to process refunds within 30 days, but in some instances it may take longer.
