SECTION PRESIDENT'S | SUBSECTION LETTER LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT

Palatine Park District A rich history. A bright future. Palatine Park District has been serving the Palatine area since its formation over 70 years ago with just one acre of land. Voters created the Park District as an independent unit of local government and elected the first Board of Park Commissioners in 1945. At that time, the local population was 3,000. Two years later, the Park District acquired 11 additional acres to form Palatine’s first park, Community Park, offering five recreation programs and classes for the community. Since that time, the Park District has continued to grow and serve the community in innovative ways while remaining a fiscally responsible steward of community assets and tax dollars. Palatine Park District has grown to a multi-facility organization managing over 730 acres of land and offering thousands of programs for the community. This year, in 2018, the Park District is proud to be celebrating several important milestone anniversaries. This year marks the 50th year of Palatine Park District Preschool. The Preschool Program has grown to include four different preschool sites that are all state-licensed. Over the years thousands of children have attended our nurturing and developmentally appropriate preschools in preparation for their entry into Kindergarten. The Preschool Program serves 150 children each year and is our featured anniversary on this brochure cover. Another 50 year milestone will be marked this summer at Palatine Hills Golf Course. PHGC celebrated its first full season in 1968. The course was designed by the late Edward A. Lawrence Packard, a renowned golf course and landscape architect who worked on over 250 golf course projects in his lifetime. Palatine Hills is an 18 hole parkland golf course that requires golfers to use all the clubs in their bag during a round. Watch for information in our Spring program brochure regarding summer celebrations of this important anniversary. Cutting Hall Performing Arts Center has been an integral part of the arts environment in Palatine since it was built in 1928 as part of the original Palatine High School. The auditorium is named after the first principal, Mr. Charles S. Cutting, and the interior has several features of historical importance which the Park District works hard to maintain, leaving the theatre looking very much like it did 90 years ago. A special anniversary celebration will be held in the theatre—watch for more information in our Fall program brochure.

And while the Park District is proud of its long history serving the community, we are always looking for ways to create new partnerships and bring our level of service to new heights. With this forward thinking model in mind, Palatine Park District recently entered into a new intergovernmental agreement with Harper College to partner in the creation of a new Health and Recreation Center. This project has been in the works since 2014, culminating in a multi-million dollar renovation of Building M on the college’s campus in Palatine. This building will help Palatine Park District meet the three top needs identified in a communitywide survey conducted in 2015 by a third-party contractor: an indoor pool, expanded fitness center, and fitness programming. A groundbreaking ceremony was held on April 10, 2017 and the newly renovated facility is scheduled to open in Fall 2018. This intergovernmental agreement and the resulting facility will have a tremendous impact on meeting the community’s needs for generations to come. All of these examples show that while Palatine Park District has a proud and strong history in the Palatine Community, the board is consistently looking ahead to create new opportunities for our residents while remaining true to our mission of providing a variety of safe, enjoyable and affordable parks, programs, and recreational facilities that will enhance the quality of life. On behalf of the Park Board of Commissioners, thank you for your past support. We look forward to continuing to serve you in the future. Best regards, Nick Sawyer President

New Transit Bus Joins District’s Vehicle Fleet As part of Palatine Park District’s Master Plan process, a staff committee developed a Transportation Analysis report that called for the purchase of a 14 passenger transit bus with 2 handicap accessible seats. The vehicle will be utilized to reduce costs for day trips, allow camps to participate in activities at various Palatine Park District facilities, offer shuttle parking opportunities at popular special events, and more. This new transit bus will help connect our facilities better and provide more recreation opportunities for everyone.

Winter 2018 | Palatine Park District | 847.991.0333 | palatineparks.org | 9


POLICIES CONDUCT ORDINANCE In 2004, the Board of Park Commissioners adopted a comprehensive Conduct Ordinance that relates to the use of the parks and property owned, operated, maintained, or controlled by Palatine Park District. A copy of this ordinance can be viewed at palatineparks.org under the "District Information" tab.

PARTICIPANT CODE OF CONDUCT In addition to the Conduct Ordinance of 2004, the Board of Park Commissioners has also approved Administrative Policy 2.13.1, Code of Conduct. This code of conduct is the minimum expected behavior of every participant to ensure the safety and positive experience of all involved. The District uses a three pillar positive behavior program as the platform to define the expected behavior of all participants. This platform is aligned and consistent with the program used within the local elementary schools to create consistency among children and parents whether at school or play at the park district. This Code of Conduct is also aligned and tied to the District’s Antibullying policy and the District’s Participant Disciplinary Policy when rules and expectations of the positive behavior program are violated. A copy of this policy can be viewed online at palatineparks.org under the "District Information" tab.

SMOKING ORDINANCE

Smoking or any use of a tobacco product, including electronic cigarettes, is prohibited within 50 feet of all entrances to Palatine Park District buildings, in all Park District facilities, in all wooded areas on Park District property, and in all other locations where signs are posted prohibiting smoking. Smoking is allowed at Palatine Hills Golf Course and on the north side of the Clubhouse deck. See Section 2.36, Code of Conduct, which can be found on palatineparks.org. “Facilities” include all structures on Palatine Park District property including, but not limited to, swimming pools; skate, dog, and disc golf parks; riding arenas; shelters; gazebos; fishing pier; playgrounds; athletic fields; and amphitheater/bowl.

A.D.A. COMPLIANCE

Palatine Park District intends to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act by making reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities. If you have any questions about the Park District’s compliance policy please contact one of our A.D.A. compliance officers: Ed Tynczuk, 148 W. Illinois Avenue, 847.705.5130, etynczuk@palatineparks.org or Donelda Danz, 250 E. Wood Street, 847.496.6203, ddanz@palatineparks.org.

CLASS DISMISSAL GUIDELINES

All children 11 and under are to remain in the classroom until a parent or authorized person comes into the classroom to pick them up. Parents are required to sign their child in and out of each class. Parents of children ages 7–11 may opt to complete a Class Dismissal Permission Slip. This will allow the child to be released at the end of the scheduled class without a parent present. These forms are available from your child’s instructor. A separate form will be required for each class attended and every new session.

ADULT SUPERVISION

When not participating in a class, children under 7 years old must be accompanied by an adult while in Park District facilities.

CHILD ENDANGERMENT

Any authorized person who exhibits signs of an impaired condition due to alcohol or drugs will not be allowed to leave a program site with the child/children.

PHOTO POLICY

Palatine Park District may take photographs of participants enrolled in Park District programs, special events, or people on Park District properties and parks. These photographs may be used in print, online, or other promotional materials and are for Park District use only.

NEW PRESCHOOL PIANO Children learn piano basics from Mozart Mouse and Beethoven Bear in a group setting. We begin by exploring the types of sounds a piano can make, move into easy music-reading with notes and rests, and find ways to memorize the letters on the keyboard. These lessons exercise fine motor skills through finger dexterity games, large motor skills through dancing songs, and aural skills through listening activities. The children sing, dance, play, clap, read, and write. A piano at home is not necessary but recommended so your children can show you all of their great work!

GOT SELF-ESTEEM & LEADERSHIP? Through creative expression in an incredibly fun workshop, kids will have the chance to cultivate self-worth and won’t even realize they are working on self-esteem. Children will play interactive self-esteem booster games like Lollipop Marathon, King's Throne, Balloon Bust, Billboard This, Ten Seconds, Money Madness, Campaign Craze, and Toy of Me. Kids will likely be overflowing with confidence when they depart this class. Don’t be surprised if there is a bit more “pep in their step” after this workshop. Research shows that children who have opportunities to build self-esteem as a child display higher leadership skills later in life. Kids will learn from a Certified Professional Life Coach the hottest tips in building self-esteem and being happy leaders. Self-esteem is always a work in progress, but this class will be a transformational kick off.

TIGER SHARKS SWIM TEAM ATHLETICS PALATINE TIGER SHARKS SWIM TEAM Palatine Tiger Sharks Swim Team is a multi-ability-level program that offers competitive opportunities, technique development, and fun for swimmers ages 6 and older. The swim team is divided into progressive groups. Open tryouts are held twice a year (in March and August). If there is still space available, new swimmers may join the team at any time throughout the year by contacting the swim office at 847.202.3240 to schedule a tryout. Team coaches make the final determination for group placement and advancement to the next level. Group sizes may be limited. Following a tryout, coaches will be able to give families approximate practice times and locations. Practice times and locations are subject to pool availability and may change. Registration is held during regular office hours at any Palatine Park District facility. All swim team registration requires a separate registration form. Non-residents are required to pay an additional fee. Families registering more than two swimmers will receive a $15 discount starting with the third swimmer. Registration fee plus the Swim Team fee are payable to the Palatine Park District by cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, or Discover. A separate check for escrow costs, payable to Palatine Swim Team, is required, no cash. Registration during Early Bird Registration guarantees a team t-shirt for each swimmer registered. After Early Bird Registration, a limited number of t-shirts will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Additional Swim Team Fees are the same for both residents and non-residents. Swim Team fees and escrow costs vary for each group. Palatine Park District registration fees do not cover all Swim Team expenses so the additional swim team fees are necessary. All fees are paid at registration. Each member of the Tiger Sharks Swim Team must be a member of Illinois Swimming and United States Swimming. • Escrow covers costs of USA/ISI Swimming (an annual cost, expiring December 31 of each year; the USA/ISI fee is nonrefundable) and of entering individual and relay events at swim meets. Any swimmer not registered with USA/ISI Swimming in the current year must pay an additional escrow fee. Unused escrow is refundable at the end of the season by contacting the swim board (escrow). • Families can offset the cost of future swim team fees by participating in the team’s ongoing fundraising opportunities. • Swim Team parents for all groups except Pre-Comp are required to volunteer during each of their child’s sessions at all Swim Team hosted meets. Failure to volunteer for any home meet will result in a charge of $100 for each meet session. • Refunds follow Palatine Park District policy (page 13).

AMENITIES • 18-hole, par 72 championship course • Recently renovated clubhouse with full service bar and dining area • Driving range – 21 stations with hitting mats, target flags • Short Game Practice Area • Pro Shop • Golf carts • Large practice putting green • Continuous cart paths • FootGolf • Real time GPS yardage on mobile app (PalatineParks)

PRACTICE AREA – PHASE 3 COMPLETED Phase 3 of our practice area was completed this fall. This included the construction of a third green complex, bunker, and tee box. Weather permitting, the third green complex will be open in June 2018. The new Short Course Practice Area at Palatine Hills is an ideal space for golfers to improve their shots within the scoring zone. Our Palatine Hills Golf Professionals suggest that the scoring zone begins where each individual golfer starts using their wedge. To enhance performance inside 100 yards and produce lower scores, golfers need a designated area to practice a variety of short game shots. This spring, there will be three green complexes with bunkers that will allow players to practice within 100 yards of the hole. Pricing options include season passes and hourly rentals. Watch for more information in the Palatine Park District spring program brochure available in February.

This facility has to be one of Palatine's best kept secrets. But I'll be sure to recommend it to my family and friends as it is a great place to hold an event.

INTRODUCTION TO HORSEMANSHIP

PONY RIDES Bring your youngsters to our Pony Barn where a parent or adult can lead their child on a pony around our pony path for $7 per ride, or rent a pony for a half hour for $15. For children under 4’6” and ages 1–10 years old. Parent or adult supervision required. Indoor arena will be used for pony rides during the winter months. Bring your camera.

WINTER HOURS Saturday, Sunday 9:30am-12:00pm

This class is required for all new students. It covers basic horsemanship skills including safety, grooming, tacking, and basic riding skills, thus building a foundation for our continuing riding program. Three lessons are non-riding. Students will learn to enter a horse's stall and lead the horse from its stall to the arena. They will also learn to tighten the girth and adjust their stirrups, techniques to properly mount a horse, the proper dismounting procedures, and returning the horse to its stall. As students become proficient with these skills actual riding time will increase accordingly. Students and parents should also be aware that due to the nature of the horse, behaviors such as spooking, biting, kicking, bucking, and playing will occur. Learning how to handle these situations as a rider is an integral part of horsemanship and will be addressed in lessons. There may still be openings for Fall Session II classes, however registration after the start date will be taken in-person at Palatine Stables only.

PONY PARTIES AT PALATINE STABLES Pony parties are perfect for the horse lover in your family! Parties offer two hours of magical memories and fun including pony rides, pony “prettying” playtime, and a party area for 4–12 children. You provide the food, beverages, and paper goods.

JOAN JOAN is a musical about teenage warrior Joan of Arc, whose angelic visions propel her into the very pages of history. How is it that a 15th century peasant girl with no understanding of military tactics was able to lead the French army to victory at Orleans, drive the English from France and crown the Dauphin Charles VII King of France?

BULLETS OVER BROADWAY by Woody Allen

David Shayne is a straight-arrow playwright who plans to stand firm against compromising his work but quickly abandons that stance when his producer finds a backer to mount his show on Broadway. There's just one catch, however: the backer is a mobster who sees Shayne's play as a vehicle for his ditzy, talent-free girlfriend. Throw in an aging diva, a savant hit-man, and a bevy of beautiful chorus girls, and this is one Broadway show that is sure to knock 'em dead. Bullets over Broadway is a love letter to the Golden Age of Broadway, filled with unforgettable songs that audiences remember and love! Loaded with big laughs, colorful characters and the songs that made the 20s roar, Bullets over Broadway The Musical is bringing musical comedy back with a bang. Based on the screenplay of the acclaimed 1994 film by Woody Allen and Douglas McGrath, this sixtime Tony-nominated musical features existing hits from the 1920s, including "Let's Misbehave," "Tain't Nobody's Biz-ness If I Do" and "There's a New Day Comin'!" Bullets over Broadway is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International, 421 W. 54th Street, New York, NY. 10019.
