RECREATION

PEOPLE IN ACTION (PIA)

People in Action (PIA), operating under the 501 (c) 3, Non-profit Organization “The Friends of DeWitt Parks and Recreation,” is a community enrichment program that addresses the challenges faced by residents with limited resources. These programs are designed to meet the needs of children and adults whose primary language is something other than English. We strive to support academic growth and reduce student drop-out rate. 

 

PIA is located within the Springfield Garden Apartment Complex on Caton Drive in DeWitt. The program is currently housed in the David G. Klim Learning and Recreation Center. Our programs are very affordable and open to any Town of DeWitt resident.

 

Registration for the 2016-2017 school year begins on Wednesday, June 1 on a first come, first serve basis. All programs follow the Jamesville-DeWitt school district calendar. Currently transportation is not available from Jamesville Elementary. 

 

Preschool Program (Ages 3-5)

This program is currently FULL. Call the Recreation Office at (315) 446-3910 x 9 to be placed on the waitlist. 

We believe that a child’s “work” is to “play.” Our preschool embraces this theory by creating a learn-by-play environment through activities, physical environment and routines. We will sing songs, read together, make art projects, and play outside.
