Fall 2012

Preschool ABOUT THE PROGRAM Ages 3 - 5 (as of December 1, 2012)

New name - Same fantastic teachers and high-quality curriculum! A day at school provides time for your children to experience activities that help them to understand themselves and the world around them. They see, touch, taste and hear to explore and discover. Play is a great avenue for learning and in our classroom the day is centered around activities that allow children to process and assimilate information. We strive to spark the children’s imaginations and creativity. We encourage problem solving and developing responsibility. Measuring children’s growth is the key to a successful education. We pay careful attention to how children are progressing. We understand that children develop at their own pace, so as we see specific educational needs, we make sure our lessons have activities to strengthen those skills. Our curriculum provides in-depth and challenging activities in math, science, art, language, reading, fine and gross motor skills and reasoning. Our students are well equipped with the skills needed to enjoy a successful kindergarten experience.

YOUTH FLAG FOOTBALL LEAGUES

No-contact flag football leagues for boys & girls Ultimate League (Grades 1 - 2) is football “keep away.” Your team passes the ball from person to person, trying to reach the end zone and score a touchdown.  Players can only take two steps after catching the ball and there are no downs or set plays.  As you play, you will become better at catching and throwing.  Continuous play on missed passes or interceptions makes for exciting action. Flag League (Grades 3 - 8) is a 5-on-5 league where you start putting everything together.  You need to use your head because you’ll be using running and passing plays. The offensive team plays for a first down at midfield and a touchdown in the end zone.  Defensive players can cover receivers, rush the passer and grab flags from the offensive players’ belts to make the “tackle.” Leagues are organized by grade, geographic location and height. Teams practice 1 to 3 times per week as scheduled by volunteer coach. Weekends: Location: Fee:  Register by: 

Sept. 15 - Oct. 27 Brownell and Pierce $120 Aug. 30

Flag Football may have Saturday/Sunday conflicts with Youth Soccer.

Thanks to You We’re Almost There! The community has been extremely generous in donating to the Neighborhood Club’s $4 million building campaign for the new Recreation and Wellness Center. Thank you to everyone who has made a donation! This past spring, the Neighborhood Club invited the community to help “Fill the Pool” with $51,000 in new pledges and gifts during the special “Fill the Pool” drive of the overall campaign. The goal represented the 51,000 gallons of water that will be needed to fill the warm water pool in the new Neighborhood Club Recreation and Wellness Center. Many assisted our “Fill the Pool” friend, Dewy, during the drive by making $1, $5, and $10 donations and donating spare change at favorite local merchants. With the help of everyone in the community, we surpassed the $51,000 goal and raised $67,655! During the “Fill the Pool drive,” many friends participated by choosing to be a part of Neighborhood Club and Grosse Pointe history by adding their names as building campaign supporters on the 100-year history display in the new center. There is still an opportunity to donate to the building campaign, as the job of raising funds is not over. Gifts of any size are greatly appreciated. See form on page 18 to help.

Thank You! 16
