‘Gee…summer’s almost over’

By Steve Bruchman, Director of Community Services

New Prague Area Schools

I have heard that phrase a lot lately and, yes—it is almost over. But it’s been a good summer and the fall is always a season to look forward to. The summer offerings of classes, camps and programs in community education were well received and provided many positive experiences for many youth, parents and community members. A few highlights from the summer:

— 700-plus kids in t-ball, baseball and softball, with 94 volunteer coaches

— 620-plus kids in swimming lessons

— 290 youth in Soccer Camp, with 24 volunteer coaches

— 150 youth in Football Camp with 14 volunteer coaches

— 490-plus youth in basketball, tennis, volleyball and track camps

— 300-plus kids in enrichment classes and Drama Camp

— 35 per day average number of school age children in Kids’ Company care

— 280-plus adults in adult enrichment classes

The Fall/Winter Early Childhood Family Education brochure was mailed to parents of children ages birth to 5 in late July, and has a nice selection of daytime and evening classes and one-time special events. If you did not receive one please let us know at 952-758-1674 and we will send one to you. You can call the same number to get information about School Readiness classes for kids who will be eligible for Kindergarten in 2005-06, as well as for pre-school Screening information and appointments for children currently ages 3-5.

Looking ahead, the Fall/Winter Community Education brochure will be mailed about September 8. There are many adult enrichment classes for you to consider (including Defensive Driving for senior citizens), interesting trips, youth and adult recreation opportunities, special foods and entertaining offerings, health and wellness courses and seminars, and Queen of Peace Hospital classes. The brochure also has a lot of information about local events, concerts, clubs and organizations, and services that can be a good resource for you, whether you are lived in the area for some time or are new to the New Prague school district.

Welcome to another school year to all of you, and a special welcome! to all our new residents. Please call us at Community Services for information at 952-758-1677.
