Greetings from Your New Lenox Community Park District But first, the Park Board and Staff are disappointed in our recent unsuccessful referendum in the March primary. We will re-evaluate our goals for development and future plans for the district in the coming months. The Park Board Commissioners and staff remain committed in continuing our mission and overall goal to improve the quality of life in our community. Second, by chance if you have not heard, your Park District Executive Director, Greg Lewis, was presented with the “IAPD Honored Professional of the Year” award this past January by the Illinois Association of Park Districts. This award is given to an Executive Director who stands out among his peers, based on job performance, financial accountability, meeting the recreational needs of the people they serve today, while constantly planning for the future. It’s reassuring that your Park District is under the watchful eye by one of the best executive directors in the State of Illinois.

PRESIDENT’S LETTER

Now that our third worst winter in recent history is over, it’s time to focus on warm weather and outdoor activities with our families and enjoying the benefits of what YOUR park district has to offer.

Third, let’s highlight some upcoming Park District events: •

Sign up for “Chasing the Sun” race that is held in conjunction with the New Lenox Chamber of Commerce on June 5.

Look for our One-Day Craft programs for ages 4-8.

Our popular Junior Golf League begins in early June. It’s never too late to sign up!

Mark your calendars for the “Proud American Days” festival, July 24, 25, 26, & 27, which is again being held at the future Menards site, just east of Walmart.

Look for the Grand Opening of your newest park, Walker Country Estates, sometime in mid-summer. This park is located next to Liberty Junior High School and will feature a splash pad and an A.D.A. accessible fishing pier. What a great addition to your park system.

Lastly, the Lincoln-Way Special Recreational Association building has become a reality. The official grand opening is slated for June. This building was built with the grant money from the “State of Illinois Jobs NOW Capital Program”, along with money from the co-op formed by the surrounding six park districts. This recreational building and its corresponding programs for people with special needs is truly a jewel in all of Will County.

Please read this catalog and take advantage of some of the programs YOUR park district has to offer. Remember, staying active promotes good health! Sincerely, Brian Fischer Park Board President

MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the New Lenox Community Park District is to provide safe recreational opportunities through diverse programs, facilities and open space, with the overall goal being improvement of the quality of life in our community.

Kiddie Kampus

Open Registration began March 22

Ages 3-4 (as of 9/1/14)

KIDDIE KAMPUS

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 selfesteem 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.

EARLY CHILDHOOD

Early Childhood Program Requirements

NEW!

Ages 6 months-3½ years (with Adult)

• Children must be the correct age by 9/1/14, 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.

Chanting is used to help center our minds and to assist with breath exercises. Kundalini Yoga is lifelong practice that has tremendous health benefits. This class is great for people who like variety, need low impact exercises that still build strength, and are looking to reduce stress. Each class is unique, focusing on different muscle groups. All levels of experience and flexibility are welcome! For your comfort, please come to class on an empty stomach (eat 2 hours before class) and wear loose fitting clothing.
