- Quest Church begins services on 1/8/17 at 9am every Sunday for members and new members. This is a great fit for Orbit Skate Center because Quest Church is an open, welcoming non-denominational congregation for families and individuals. Come as you are, even Pastor Ed is in blue jeans! Live music brings a special element to the services and participants can stay and roller skate the 11a-3p open skating session afterwards for a special price!
- We hope that our local schools will take advantage of our new STEM field trips for elementary and middle schools. Taught during the day, $12 per student includes an hour STEM program on a variety of subjects relating to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math built around roller skating, rink design, sound, and the math principles that bring these exciting subjects to life and allows students in hands on activities to show how everyday life relates.
- Our new Saturday lineup of classes on 4 levels, Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced and Adults only classes bring the love of roller skating to new visitors allowing for a lifetime of fitness.
- That our mission to provide excellence in after school care for our local Palatine CCSD 15 school district continues to grow. We hope that we are able to give families a chance to enjoy their family time together instead of trying to get homework done they are able to sit down to dinner and spend time having fun. The After School Club is open to all children grades K-8 and we offer very affordable care including transportation and healthy snacks along with really fun activities. Enrollment is always open and new students begin all the time!
- We hope and pray that roller skating continues to be a sustainable, family centered activity and enough skaters come to Orbit Skate Center to keep it the landmark destination it has been for 42 years. With all the challenges of doing business in Cook County, it has been very difficult to keep going and we all hope for a better 2017!
Have a great year and Happy New Year to all of you from all of us.
