Canajoharie to launch Community Education
Program in November
The Canajoharie Central School District will
begin piloting a new Community Education Program next month with its
first two classes focusing on technology and holiday craft making.
Last year, the district distributed a community
survey to gauge interest in a Community Education Program. Survey
respondents indicated a high level of interest in technology classes
and cooking/health-related programs.
The program’s first class will feature students
from Canajoharie High School’s Computer Science Internship (CSI)
program who will serve as “Technology Ambassadors” for the
community. The Computer Science students will help community members
with basic computing questions involving email, Facebook, iPads,
iPhones and more. The students will give brief presentations on
technology and then answer individual questions. The class will take
place from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Nov. 16 at the Arkell Community Center.
This class is free.
The Holiday Crafting workshop will take place
from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Nov. 30, also at the Arkell Community Center.
Instructors will be on hand to teach participants how to make
various holiday items including ornaments and wreaths. This class
will be $5 per participant. Money will be collected at the door.
Those wishing to attend are asked to sign up in
advance. Visit the
Community Education Program's website, to sign up or call
Additional classes will be scheduled throughout
the school year.
The district is seeking additional community
assistance for future programs. Community members with talents or
areas of interest that they would like to share with the public are
asked to contact Jennifer Schwabrow, Canajoharie’s Director of
Special Education and Instructional Services, at
firstname.lastname@example.org or 673-6317.
