SAD 53 lists adult education classes

PITTSFIELD — Richard Woodbury, adult education director for SAD 53, has released the 1995 fall program of classes, most to be held at Warsaw Middle School.

The program offers something for everyone, said Woodbury, including high school completion courses, hunter safety and CPR classes, GED testing services and personal enrichment classes. A new offering this year is the Personal Care Attendant class.

The 56-hour class will provide instruction in all aspects of personal care, CPR and first aid certification, body mechanics, environmental safety, nutrition and homemaking. This class is a forerunner to a full-fledged Certified Nurse’s Aid and is tailored especially for those entering the medical field for the first time, said Woodbury.

All classes will begin the week of September 11. Registration night will be 6-7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 6 at Warsaw, or the first night of a chosen class.

Monday classes include: Multicultural America by Susan London and general math with Deborah Lamson; basketball by Dan Delano, basket making with Jackie MacLaren, and quilting with Kim Barbour.

Tuesday classes are algebra, English grammar and composition, holiday cake decorating, candy making, centerpieces with Crystal Russell, line dancing with Alfred Boudreau, advanced sign language with Earl Thaler, and woodworking with John White.

Wednesday’s classes are The Book/Video Connection by Susan London, stained glass with Ken Hubel, Christmas crafts by Mickey Young, volleyball with Susan Nile and holiday decorations by Patricia Swift.

Thursday’s classes include: modern biology by Charles London, basketball with Richard Pelligrino, beginning sign language with Earl Thaler, yoga with Chris Faria and furniture refinishing and caning with Marsha Ingraham.

Three computer classes are also offered: introduction to Macintosh computers, Lotus 1-2-3, and WordPerfect.

There are no registration fees for classes used for high school diploma, GED, literacy or adult basic education. Individual enrichment classes have varying fees, with most costing $15 for residents, $20 for non-residents and $10 for senior citizens.
