District 128 Community Education Announces New Classes for 2012

The District 128 Community Education Winter/Spring/Summer catalogs are in the mail. The program has developed quite a few new classes for the term, so do take a minute to check them out. A small sample of the new course offerings includes: Beading, Chocolate 101, Using Google Docs, Rejuvenating Your Retirement, Become Your Own Health Advocate, Spanish for First Responders, A Guy’s Guide to the Professional Wardrobe, Fire Safety and Emergency Preparedness, Bike Maintenance, Handwriting Analysis, Wine Making and Appreciation, and many new cooking classes.

Taking a class is a great way to meet others and a fun way to learn something new.

A wide selection of Summer Youth Classes have been added for summer 2012. Classes/mini camps will include offerings in the areas of science, engineering, cooking, sewing, arts, fishing, theater, computers, self-defense, guitar, and more. These will be great activities to keep young minds working and inspired.

The District 128 Community Education Program partners with several organizations which allows our program to offer an even larger selection of classes. We continue to partner with Stevenson High School’s Community Education Program, and we have expanded the number of partnerships that we have with our local businesses and with our area first responders. We also continue to partner with Education to Go which gives our Community Education Program the opportunity to offer over 350 online classes in many different content areas.

If you are a District 128 Gold Card holder (offered free to District 128 Senior Citizens), you can receive a discount on many of the classes offered. We hope that you will take advantage of this discount and enroll in a class or two. Please call our office at 847-932-2176 so that we can arrange for you to receive the discount.

The new semester begins on Jan. 23, so visit the D128 Community Education website at to check out our full selection of classes.
