Reinventing Verona: Kids’ Activities

Once upon a time, kids in Verona played ball on the streets and swam in Verona Park’s lake or took a spin on its carousel, pictured on our home page. If they were boys, they played football and baseball. If they were girls, they didn’t play those sports–or much else. Now, we have school sports teams, Recreation Department teams and travel teams, for boys and girls, many of which start in kindergarten. We have added sports like lacrosse and wrestling, and we have many kids in sports that aren’t on Verona’s official agenda at all.

But of course sports aren’t the only things that clamor for the attention of Verona’s kids:  There’s extra instruction in a wide range of subjects, test prep and, oh yes, just plain fun.

All of which costs Verona parents a lot of money; just how much is one of the objectives of today’s is survey. The other, of course, is to see how Verona has been reinventing itself in the area of kids activities, to shed some light on what activities might need to be offered in town in the future. So take a minute and take the Reinventing Verona Kids’ Activity Survey.  And if you haven’t taken last week’s survey on Food, you can still participate in that.
