Registration for spring 2020 programs now underway
By Terry Duffy
Community Ed is alive and well at Lewiston-Porter.
Lewiston-Porter’s Community Education program is back strong and poised for an even better future. It returned last fall following an earlier lapse due to district financial issues.
This popular Lewiston-Porter program is open to district residents, as well as those in adjoining school districts, including residents from Niagara-Wheatfield, Wilson, Starpoint and even Niagara Falls. What’s more, it has seen positive reactions both from district residents as well as those from throughout the northern Niagara County area.
Anita Muzzi is the program coordinator and a PR specialist with Orleans/Niagara BOCES. She said last fall’s program had more than 120 classes offered and just under 1,000 residents registered.
“We had a great response from surrounding communities attending the program.” Muzzi said. “Many classes had to offer a second night due to the wait lists becoming so large.”
Muzzi said her initial objective last year was to create a program “that touched the interests of the diverse population that we live in to make the Lewiston-Porter campus a focal point in the community. The public supported us in record numbers, far surpassing my initial goals.”
“In so many instances, instructors offered additional classes as the wait lists grew for their sold-out offerings,” Muzzi added.
For winter/spring 2020, the Lewiston-Porter Community Education promised programs are going to be bigger, better and even more diverse in the offerings.
“We’re excited to bring winter/spring edition of L-P Community Ed to Western New York. Makes for a great New Year’s resolution. Please consider trying a course for 2020,” said Paul Casseri, Lewiston-Porter Superintendent of Schools.
“We hope the new winter/spring Community Ed program inspires you and supports your goals to be healthier and happier, to learn and grow and connect,” said Jodee Riordan, president of Lewiston-Porter Board of Education.
The spring session opens Monday, Feb. 24, and continues to Friday, May 15. The program is expected to offer 114 classes, with new offerings/classes added regularly.
“We are bringing back many of the popular classes from the first session, with the addition of close to 50 new offerings,” Muzzi said.
So what’s on the list? Well, just about everything imaginable – and to suit just about anyone’s particular taste. Here’s just a sampling of the many new course offerings on schedule for this spring: beeswax candle making; acrylic and water color painting; embroidery; animation; Ukrainian egg decorating; pencil drawing; basket weaving; babysitting training; Greek
