A day off from school? “Yay!!!” Say the kids at the neighborhood boys and girls club on the northwest side of the city. Here kids are getting exercise and socialization instead of being home playing video games. Plus a three day weekend is always nice, even for the kids.
“Just like parents and Garfield, nobody likes Mondays,” says fifth grader Michael Vondrasek.
This is a great $40 option for parents whose work schedules are colliding more and more with school schedules. But more snow/cold days also means fewer days for summer break for which the kids say, “Nooooo!”
Kids you can’t have your cake and eat it too.
Park Ridge also has a similar program and open gym too.
Check your local park district to see if there’s “school’s out” program in your neighborhood.
