2) New Phone Number for Niles Teen Center- 847-588-6900
The Village of Niles has upgraded the phone system for all village buildings and employees. The Teen Center has now been incorporated into that system.
- The Teen Center will now have a new general phone number of 847-588-6900.
- There is a new voicemail system. There are voicemail boxes for general teen center messages and a separate voicemail box for Mark. All voicemail messages will also be delivered to staff via email, which may allow for a more prompt response. If you have a question or concern, always leave a message, we will call you back.
- If there is an emergency, there will be an option on the main line voicemail to be directly connected to Mark or another on-duty staff member.
- The current emergency cell phone of 847-408-0585 will only be used for trips. Please do not call or text this number any longer.
- We now have a phone mounted in the kitchen specifically for teens to receive and make calls to their parents. If a parent calls to talk to their child, the call will be transferred to the kitchen and the child asked to go pick it up.
- The current phone number of 847-375-8949 will be forwarded to the new system for approximately the next 3 months.
- PLEASE UPDATE YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION TO 847-588-6900

7) National Day Calendar.
As a Christmas Gift, Mark received a National Day Calendar from his brother-in-law who is a rather unconventional thinker. This calendar does not list the any national, local or state holidays. But instead it is a calendar of fun and random holidays like “Hug a Plumber Day” and “Ice Cream Day”. In the spirit of fun, Mark will be providing these “holidays” each week as random and fun facts for teens and parents to enjoy and potentially use in their social media posts.
Mon. July 13- French Fry Day
