GREETINGS FROM YOUR NEW LENOX COMMUNITY PARK DISTRICT! I don’t know about you, but I enjoyed the activities that this past winter’s snow had to offer. However, I am sure looking forward to the fun that summer brings. Let’s start with your Recreation Department. As I have done in the past, I want to point out new summer programs that you should look into. First, we have a Magic Class taught by the Magic Team of Gary Kantor, in which children learn a collection of fascinating and mesmerizing tricks. Children are grouped by age and always learn tricks that are age appropriate. Sounds interesting, doesn’t it? Second, we have Computer Coding Mini-Camps which are a fun way for children ages 5-12 to learn computer programming by playing coding board games, programming Coddie the robot, creating fun iPad apps and making mods for the popular game Minecraft™. Lastly, for the parents who would like a night out but have no one to watch the kids, this program is for you! Your Park District is offering “Friday Night Flicks”. After the kids make a movie-themed craft, play games and enjoy pizza for dinner, they will watch a movie and enjoy some popcorn. Remember to have kids wear comfy clothes and bring blankets and pillows. This Program Guide is filled with all sorts of activities from preschool to seniors, so please spend some time browsing it and choose an activity that fits your needs. The nice weather not only brings changes for your Recreation Department, but the same holds true for your Sanctuary Golf Course. The Sanctuary Golf Course offers golf lesson programs to fit all skill levels, from juniors to seniors, beginners to experts. Speaking of juniors, our ever popular Junior Golf League will once again be offered on Tuesday mornings throughout the summer. There will be a variety of Adult Golf Leagues to choose from, brand new range balls at your practice driving range and all the while keeping our rates at levels to fit most everyone’s needs. As always, your friendly and caring staff at The Sanctuary will assist you in making your golf experience an enjoyable one. Please visit the Sanctuary’s website at golfsanctuary.com for more information on rates, lessons leagues or any other information you need. Your Parks-Maintenance Department has renovated Lions Den softball field for your Recreation Department Softball Leagues. We will continue to replace old worn-out park site amenities such as park benches and picnic tables in ongoing efforts to keep your parks safe and modern. This Spring, your Parks-Maintenance Department also oversaw the installation of a new playground at Prairie Ridge Park, located east of Gougar Road, north of Route 6. Please come and help us celebrate the Grand Opening of this park on Wednesday, August 15. Remember to bring your lawn chair and blankets! A variety of games will be played and hotdogs, chips and a drink will be provided. Hope to see you there!

In closing, I know I can speak for my fellow commissioners when I say how proud we are of the entire New Lenox Community Park District staff. They do their best day-in, day-out, are never satisfied with being average and are always trying to offer the best. On behalf of the Board of Commissioners, I want to say - Thank You! Remember…Be Active and Stay Healthy! Sincerely, Brian Fischer Park Board President

• 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 beginning March 10 from 8:00am-11:00am 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.
