connect experiences that

us...

UNDER CONSTRUCTION – this has been the theme of this past summer, and we want to thank all of you for your patience and flexibility in accessing the Orono campus during this time. It was a record year of participation for Orono Community Education, and we are so thankful for the support of this community. Connection and community are at the core of Orono Community Education. The fall brochure is packed with experiences that you may choose because of the topic, but what you will really gain are connections with other people who love to learn and share similar interests. In an age of digital information overload, we all need ways to connect with other people – in person – over fun, enriching experiences. New classes and trips for adults include a Christmas Mansions tour on Summit Avenue, Poured Acrylic Paint Workshop, Total Body Workout fitness class, Photo Organization – Print and Digital workshop and much more! No matter what the topic, new learning with new people improves our mind, body and spirit. Youth can discover new interests with Engineering for Kids STEM Club, tennis camps and lessons with Coach Bryan Turunen, Middle School Nordic Ski team and more! The Orono School Age Care (OK Kids) program will be offering a new 3:45 - 5 pm care option called Club Spartan for students who need short term care after school. See page 41 for more information. Our staff at Orono Community Education are also eager to hear from you regarding suggestions for Winter and Spring 2019 youth and adult programs, including ideas for health and fitness classes that you would like to see offered at the new activity center set to open in early 2019. Facility scheduling and fitness memberships are being coordinated by Marie Moore in the District Office, and Community Education staff will be planning classes and programs. So get those ideas to us! Have a wonderful fall!

Parenting & Family Rethinking Anti-Bias in Early Childhood Environments

Presented by Kristen Wheeler Highland, MnAEYC Trainer

A training for Early Childhood staff and care givers Anti-bias curriculum goes far beyond making sure children see images of diversity, inclusion and “nonstereotypical” roles. Diversity in our settings is so much more than the posters, the books, the crayons, paint and dolls. Anti-bias work is essentially optimistic work about the future for our children. Antibias teachers are committed to the principle that every child deserves to develop to his or her fullest potential. This workshop will explore the ‘isms’ included in true anti-bias work. We will examine how to more authentically include anti-bias and diversity into the settings that children find themselves in through reflecting on ourselves and our programs. Practical tips, strategies and suggestions will be included.

Good Night, Sleep Tight

Presented by Karen Pennaz, ECFE Parent Educator Does your child refuse to cooperate, lose it over small issues, seem distracted, impulsive or hyperactive? Are they misbehaving or missing sleep? The exciting thing about when a child’s misbehavior is a result of missing sleep is that you can make a real difference. Sleep problems not only disrupt a child’s night - they disrupt their days too. One of the most important roles as a parent is to be a sleep resource manager. We live in a sleep-deprived culture. In this workshop, we will discuss sleep requirements by age, signs of sleep deprivation, what happens when we lack sleep, triggers that prevent sleep, importance of naps and more. We’ll review practical strategies to help your family get the sleep you all deserve. Let’s make improvements in your family’s sleep patterns!

Mike Huber will share this important information, as he has dedicated his life to serving children, families and the field of early childhood.

Positive Coac hing Alliance

Orono Community Education’s partnership with Positive Coaching Alliance continues to provide valuable resources to coaches, athletes and parents. The Positive

coach

Uses the power of positive reinforcement to pursue winning and the more important goal of teaching life lessons through sports. The Positive

athlete

Strives to improve him or herself, teammates and the sport as a whole.

The Positive

sports parent

Focuses on life lessons through sports, leaving concerns about results in competition to coaches and athletes. Explore Parent Resources on the Positive Coaching Alliance website. It is filled with videos, short stories and helpful tips. Check it out today!

Honor the Game “Honoring the Game” is a Positive Coaching Alliance principle about sportsmanship encouraging leaders, coaches, parents and athletes to respect all aspects of their sport. The ROOTS of Honoring the Game is an acronym which stands for better respecting: Rules, Opponents, Officials, Teammates and Self.

Rules

The rules of a sport have been developed and modified for a reason. Rules keep the game fair, and they also keep athletes safe. Don’t try to work against the rules or bend them; respect the role they play in your sport.

Opponents

As you want respect, give respect to your opponents. As Positive Coaching Alliance founder Jim Thompson suggests, “fierce and friendly” opponents are what we should strive to be and have in competition.

Officials

Officials are doing the best they can to enforce the rules and maintain a safe environment for play. They are people too, doing the best they can, and there is never an excuse for disrespecting officials.

Teammates

Make your teammates proud by doing the best you can (on and off the field) and by supporting them in all their efforts.

Self

Finally, and most importantly, you have to respect yourself in order to uphold an honorable approach to sports. Set high standards and live up to them.
