After 40 great years of personal enrichment and community education classes, Ellensburg Community Schools is open for registration for their fall 2014 classes. These classes are a fantastic way to meet new people, learn a new skill or hobby, and even give you a chance to get out of the house for an evening!
The personal enrichment courses are classes offered at a low cost and taught by your community members. Classes are for adults of the community that are over the age of 18. You are never too old to participate in a class or event! The classes take place in the Ellensburg High School building as well as Lincoln Elementary.
For those of you who are unsure what exactly a personal enrichment course entails, it’s simply this; non-graded and non- credit classes that teach new skills or ideas. These classes range from karate to learning how to Facebook! Each course is taught by a community member who has expertise in the subject of the course. And the best part… NO TESTS! These courses are a fun and easy way to acquire new skills and even learn something new without the cost of college and the stresses of going to school every day.
This fall, Ellensburg Community Schools is offering 8 different courses. These include:
- Jazz Fusion
- Microsoft Office Training
- Facebook for Beginners
- Basic PC repairs
- Fly Tying
- Kids Ski Program
- Open Gym
In order to sign up for a class, you may go to the Ellensburg School District Office or mail in your registration forms. If you would like to print the registration form off, go to the website www.eburg.wednet.edu.
Ellensburg School District Office hours are 8:30 am to 5:00pm Monday through Friday.
Ellensburg Community Schools could have the classes that help you find what you are looking for. Come try a class and who knows…maybe you will find a new passion!
