Rio Rancho Parks & Recreation “To create and maintain spaces and activities that grow a greater sense of community and enhance the quality of life for its residents.”

Message from the Director: Dear Residents and Guests, These are a few of my favorite things about Rio Rancho: beautiful parks with playgrounds, great schools, miles of trails, the Rio Rancho Bosque, safe neighborhoods and caring people. We’re the 3rd largest City in New Mexico, yet we retain a wonderful small-town feeling, evidenced by city-wide special events like the Park in the Park car show each spring, the Mayor’s Sunday is Funday every fall, Pork & Brew, the 4th of July parade and the fireworks display that brings thousands of people together to celebrate our nation’s freedom, the Pooch Plunge in September, and the holiday parade in December. These are just a small sample of such events! We provide a dynamic summer recreation and aquatics program drawing hundreds of participants, as well as a community education program that offers dozens of classes. The Meadowlark Senior Center provides a place dedicated to enhancing the lives of our Rio Rancho seniors. The Rio Rancho Libraries are some of the busiest branches in the New Mexico Library system, and are gathering places offering activities such as LEGO Club, Comic Con for teens, the annual Summer Kick-off Party, family night programs, and hundreds of other programs all year long. I appreciate and enjoy my quality of life here in Rio Rancho. Whether you’re looking for a place to visit, live, or build a business, know that you are welcome in Rio Rancho! Sincerely, Connie Peterson Director of Parks, Recreation, and Community Services

For more information on upcoming events, please visit www.santaanastarcenter.com

How to Watch a Good Program Die

Nothing kills a recreation program faster than residents who wait until the last minute to register. There is a point when a program must be cancelled or modified if there is insufficient registration. All programs require a high level of coordination often including facility scheduling, staffing, volunteer recruitment, and purchasing of supplies.

Beyond the Bell - After School Teen Homework Club

Often when middle schoolers get around to starting their homework, distractions from television, video games, and social media make studying a challenge, especially when parents are at work and not available to assist with homework. Beyond the Bell is a fun, safe place for teens to go after school. We offer a perfect combination of structured homework time with trained tutors, followed by time to just hang out and socialize with friends. Transportation is provided from all RRPS middle schools to the Star Heights Community Center. Middle schoolers enjoy a snack and a few minutes of free time before jumping into their homework where trained tutors are available to assist with homework. Computers and printers are available for students to access PowerSchool. Staff does not have access to PowerSchool, nor do they follow up with teachers on assignments. Once their homework is done, students can play board games, play in the park, or compete in friendly sports activities. Middle-schoolers in this program receive general academic help and/or homework assistance. Students are expected to be fully prepared and bring the following items to the Homework Club including homework, textbooks, calculator (if needed), notebook, writing utensils, etc. Our tutors/staff will provide assistance, explanation, and clarification. Tutors will NOT do the homework for the student, write their paper or give them the answers. Parents and students must understand and agree that tutoring will not necessarily result in perfect work and does not guarantee an “A” or a passing grade. Success at school is dependent on the student implementing sound study strategies and putting in the needed effort, not on the tutor. We’re just here to help. • • • • • • •

T’ai Chi Chih

T’ai Chi Chih – serenity in the midst of activity – is a series of 19 movements and one pose, which were originated by Justin Stone. Mr. Stone taught T’ai Chi Ch’uan for many years before developing a new technique, which he called T’ai Chi Chih. T’ai Chi Chih is simple and easy to learn with benefits usually beginning from the first class. The gentle movements emphasize a flowing continuity and strongly stimulate the flow and balance of Chi or the “vital force” in the body. Benefits of regular T’ai Chi Chih practice can include stress reduction, weight and blood pressure control, increased energy, and a greater enthusiasm for life. As the practitioner becomes relaxed, a new understanding and perspective is formed, creative energy flows more freely, and greater joy in everyday life becomes apparent. • June 4 to July 23 • Tuesdays • 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm • Sabana Grande Art Center • Min: 8 Max: 20 • $40 • Ages 16 and up
