Register For Park Classes
While a few classes have already started, the Rosemont Park District has openings for a number of programs for its fall schedule.
Program director Ralph Stephens encourages families to sign up as soon as possible, as some classes will be starting in the next week or two. Call the Park District at 847-823-6685 for information on specific programs and deadlines.
There is, for example, space left in the TOPPS dog obedience class being offered Tuesday nights from 5 to 6 p.m. and starting Sept. 27. Dogs must be at least 4 months old to participate.
Young children with a lot of energy may appreciate “Kicking ’N Screaming.” Monday evenings from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Kids, 3 to 6 years, get a chance to work off extra energy at the gym with programmed activities.
Kids’ First Cheerleading, Kids’ First Flag Football and Kids’ First Gymnastics classes are available for grade schoolers.
For the creative, Young Rembrandts will offer art classes Wednesday afternoons for ages 3-1/2 to 5, 6-12 (drawing) and 6-13 (cartooning).
Also about to start are Kids First Basketball, Saturdays for ages 10-12; Micro Basketball, Tuesdays for ages 3-6 and Saturdays for ages 7-9; Floor hockey, Wednesday evenings with classes for ages 5-7 and 8-10; Tee Ball for ages 3-6 on Thursday evenings.
The park district web site, www.rosemontparkdistrict.com, has an online copy of the brochures; printed copies are being mailed to residents as well.
Special events this coming week include “School’s Out” activities.
At “Day at the Park,” on Tuesday, Sept. 20, when Rosemont School closes early after a half day, Lange Park will offer afternoon activities for students from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. from kindergarten through third grade in the Thompson Room.
This is an opportunity for parents who want supervised activities and can’t be home early that day. Fees are $8 for residents; $12 for non-residents. A pizza lunch and activities are included, along with door-to-door service from school to park by van. Dec. 14, Feb. 8 and April 12 of the 2016-17 school year will also be available.
On Monday, Sept. 19, parents of preschoolers, ages 3 to 5 years, will be offered a similar opportunity, from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Prices for this “Junior Day at the Park” are the same as “Day at the Park.”
