Safely Gathering Knowledge Together!
Welcome to a new year of learning! It won’t look exactly like it has in the past, but we promise to do our best to keep you engaged and growing – even if it’s from a distance!
The current pandemic has turned our world upside down and sideways as we’re sure it has for many of you. Trying to navigate these unchartered waters has not been easy, but your local adult education programs are committed to providing both academic and enrichment opportunities that meet the needs of our communities.
Due to safety concerns, we will not be able to hold any of this fall’s enrichment classes in the AOS 93 schools. The safety protocols that would need to be established following after school and evening in-person classes would be too much for the school custodians to take on given the level of sanitation now required. We know it’s going to feel very different this fall, but we hope you’ll take advantage of one or more of the learning opportunities listed in these pages and make a difference in someone’s life, as all the money we receive for our enrichment programs is used to support our free high school equivalency and college transition programs.
On an exciting note . . . our wonderful artisans with their own shops (i.e. our gifted potter, Liz Proffetty, and woodworker extraordinaire, Rick Gallion) will be able to continue with in-person classes this fall by following social distancing guidelines and the wearing of masks. We hope you’ll take advantage of these outstanding hands-on opportunities!
We are once again offering a $5 discount for EARLYBIRD registrations. The deadline for the discount is September 25th. Thank you for supporting your local adult & community education programs. We wish all of you a safe & healthy autumn!
