We have been working diligently on creating a new Logo and the result can be viewed here in our Header. We felt that it was time for an update with the many transformations we have been going through these past 10 years or so. Changing a logo takes a lot more effort than you first think, it has to be appealing to the audience we are serving and tell something about our organization. We wanted it to be fun (jumpy people) and still keep some of our old logo (different colours). We hope you will like it and please send us some comments.
This is a very special week for us here at Jericho; the start of our regular programs for the year. For the past month or so we have been very busy, finishing off another successful season of Summer Camps at three locations to best serve our community and completed planning for our upcoming “fall premiere”. We have hired some new, awesome staff, who are eager to get to work. We have trained new and existing staff, had fun at our Fall Family Fun Day, squeezed in a pre-teen dance at the Ice Palace and purchased supplies and snack for our cool after school programs.
Why do we think our after school programs are important? We know how busy families are today with many activities to go to after supper and we are here to help with homework. We offer structured and free play time; lots of gym activities and crafts.
According to 2012 Active Healthy Kids Canada Report Card 46% of Canadian kids get 3 hours or less active play per week and that includes weekends. 63% Of Canadian kids’ free time after school and on weekends is spent being sedentary. How would not want to do fun stuff with their friends? 92% of Canadian kids said they would choose playing with friends over watching TV!
We also serve healthy snacks for hungry stomachs!
So if you have not yet done so, sign up for one or more of our free programs at https://jerichoyouthservices.recdesk.com and stay active!
