It Is All About You

By Dolf Moon, Director of Parks, Recreation and Community Education

Even with cool temperatures and snow on the ground, summer is right around the corner. The PRCE brochure is out and has plenty of opportunities for you and your family. We look forward to seeing your family at the Hutchinson Aquatic Center. Your kids may be interested in Kids Clay Camp, Little Scientist or Animation-ish to name a few. We also have a variety of sports camp offerings led by the Tiger Coaching Staff.

This summer you will want to take advantage of our many new playgrounds. We encourage you check out our parks, trails and fitness park information at or maybe even try geocaching.  Keep an eye on the Heart of Hutch activities by eating smart, moving naturally or connecting wholeheartedly.

The PRCE Department offers a wide variety of educational and recreational opportunities to district residents. The uniqueness of the program starts with you. If you have an interest and do not see a program that meets your needs, let us know. We will try to arrange a program. If you have a skill, you would like to share with others, give us a call. We are currently putting together the fall/winter brochure

PRCE reaches out to the entire community whether you are a parent with a preschool child (Early Childhood Family Education), a student taking a program after school, participating in Middle School athletics, an adult in a class or league, a senior citizen dropping by our center there’s something for all ages. PRCE also provides Adult Basic Education opportunities. Whether you dropped out of high school, are looking for a new job or trying to receive your GED, we can help. If you are looking to use a facility, a park shelter or a ball field, we can help.

Parks, Recreation and Community Education understand that “community” extends from neighborhoods to the world. We are flexible enough to meet the needs of a fast-changing society. We can extend the reach of education and bring people together in a common purpose. We like getting people involved in our schools. We can become partners in addressing community needs. We do this by offering a scope of activities and services that evolve with new generations of people and technologies, making the community a learning center open for people of all ages.

Parks, Recreation and Community Education reaches out to be inclusive. Every day it proves that the community and our schools, working together, can be greater than the sum of their individual parts.

Tigers of the Week: Cast & Crew of the Spring Play

Congrats to the cast and crew of the spring play, our TIGERs of the Week for April 23 – 27

Spring Play Cast and Crew

The cast and crew members of “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten” are a great example of all TIGER qualities. They put in countless hours of rehearsal, memorizing some challenging pieces to put together a fantastic show. They were a true ensemble and worked as one. When one was down, the others pulled them up. It has been a true blessing to work with them.
