Comm Ed fall promo
The Fall 2017 Community Education brochure is now available! Please take a look at what we have to offer. Some of our new offerings for this session include: Chair Yoga for Arthritis, Mindfulness and Meditation, and Clowning 101. Of course we will still offer our perennial favorites like Aquasize, Bricks 4 Kidz after-school Lego clubs, Middle Eastern dance, driver's education (Behind the Wheel), yoga, photography, and Spanish and Chinese classes. 

Swim lessons and all other aquatics classes will also resume this fall following the renovation of our pool. Please note that swim lessons will begin on Sept. 23 (instead of Sept. 16 as originally advertised) due to continued renovations to the pool balcony. We will also be postponing our "pool party" open house due to this work. Please visit the Community Ed web page for more information, to view our revised brochure, or for a link to online registration. Thank you!

Montco Trail Challenge

Montco Trail Challenge:
The Montgomery County Health Department, in partnership with the Planning Commission, Commissioners, and Parks, Trails, and Historic Sites, is sponsoring a family-friendly Trail Challenge for all ages!  As we have worked to promote the 5-2-1-0 message throughout the school year, the Montco Trail Challenge is a great opportunity to put the numbers into action by encouraging physical activity and reducing screen time through exploration of the county’s parks, trails, and historic sites.  Selected parks and trails throughout the County have been identified and assigned their own unique shape which is mounted at trail heads or parking lots. Upon visiting the listed parks and trails, participants have to find and correctly identify the designated shape, similar to a scavenger hunt.  Depending on how many trails or parks participants visit, tiered educational reinforcements can be earned.  Please join us in sharing this event with your students and staff. For more information or go to the website, www.montcopa.org/trailchallenge.
