The Power of Foods for Kids

The health problems faced by our youth today are unlike any in the past. Poor diet and lack of exercise put today’s children at greater risk for heart disease, diabetes, and cancer later in life. A foundation for healthy eating at a young age is needed to lessen the risk for chronic diseases. In the Food for Life Kids classes, the curriculum highlights the positives of the four food groups (whole grains, legumes, fruits, and vegetables) in the Power Plate. Note: Please note any food allergies at the time of registration. Scholarships are available. Pre-registration required.

Age: 6–12 years

8/27–10/1 W 4:00–5:30 PM $60 for 6 class series

Ice Skating

Classes are held at EPIC, 1801 Riverside Ave., unless otherwise noted.

General Information

Lessons are taught by Certified P.S.A. instructors and follow guidelines of the United States Figure Skating Association.

Parents may observe lesson from the upstairs bleachers. It is distracting for skaters and coaches to have parents at the gate and also creates an obstruction for skaters that are entering or exiting the ice.

Individuals are not allowed on the ice with their shoes on. However, parents are welcome to skate with their child during the 15 minute practice time. EPIC’s rental skates are available free of charge.

Our class student to instructor ratio is 1 instructor to 10 students. Any classes larger than 10 will have an assistant added to them. Minimum for all classes, based on cost efficiency is 5. (Class levels may be combined to meet this minimum.)

Skating lesson are 30 minutes in length with a 15 minute practice time, which may be before or after your lesson depending on scheduling.

The instructors have time in between classes to talk to parents and address their concerns.

Please be aware that some levels will need to be repeated to master all the skills.

The first day of each lesson is generally termed as level evaluation day. At this time, the instructors will evaluate all of the participants in their assigned classes to make certain they have been correctly enrolled. If there is a problem, the instructor may discuss the best course of action with the parent. Students will be moved if there is space available in the appropriate level of class.

There are no make-up lessons for missed skating classes.

If the class you wish to register for is filled, you may place your name on a Paid waiting list. We attempt to accommodate the demand for skating lessons by adding new classes, however they may not be at the same time/day as the waiting list class. Classes that do not meet the minimum may be canceled or combined.

If you are unable to attend the last day of classes for testing,

please request a progress card on the last day you attend.

Good ideas for proper clothing include:

Helmet (also available at EPIC; Tot 1 and 2 Required)

Gloves (thin –not ski mittens)

Fleece or light weight Jacket

Skating dresses with tights or Leggings/Pants that are easy
