Summer Learning

If you are looking for a way to help your kids keep up with their learning during the summer, you should check out the University of North Alabama Continuing Education website. They offer classes for younger children in Kindergarten all the way up to pre-teens. We sent our child to their engineering class this year and a space class in years past. Their instructors are well qualified and fun. The activities are varied and are so much fun that the kids forget they're learning!

There are some availabilities in the youth classes for next week. Below are the available classes. be sure to register ASAP to insure you get a spot.

  • A Taste of Ballroom Dance (Grades 6-8)
  • Art Exploration (Grades K-1)
  • Explore the Continents (Grades 2-3)
  • Quilting for Children (Ages 7-13)
  • LEGO® Elementary Engineering (Ages 8-12)
If you are interested in these classes, call 256-765-5987 or visit their website.

Now if you're looking for something for yourself, they also have classes for adults. I've taken a few computer-based classes and have gotten a lot out of them. Again, the instructors are very well qualified. The prices range from under a hundred to about $200 depending on the materials they provide. Make sure you check with your employer about compensation, too. If you can use the skills you will learn on the job, chances are your bosses might be willing to pay for the class. Check out their class directory to see if there is something you want to try.
