Here at Saint Peter Community & Family Education, a part of the Saint Peter Public School District, we are very excited about the classes offered in our summer brochure! Whether you are looking for a family activity, enrichment opportunities for your child, or you want to learn something new, you will find a variety of life-long learning experiences in our brochures.
Families can learn how to canoe with a DNR Area Naturalist River Expert or enjoy the Prairie Fire Children’s Theatre production of “Sleeping Beauty” on July 18 & 19.
Parents can help their children become better readers in a course through Capstone Literacy Center.
Adults can take part in computer classes, attend a free documentary, or discover some great recipes in a St. Peter Food Coop class. Creativity can be fostered by learning to play an instrument, taking a digital photography class, creating a painting in one night, or getting messy in a pottery class at the Arts Center of St. Peter. Improve your health with a diabetes prevention class, or strengthen your body and calm your mind through yoga.
In addition to all of the classes listed in our brochures, we also offer Adult Basic Education classes during the school year. Individuals can earn their General Education Development Diploma (GED), high school diploma, learn English, attend work force preparation classes, and participate in citizenship preparation.
We have a lot of fun children’s activities in our summer brochure. Children can participate in a Chinese culture workshop, perform exciting science experiments, take music lessons, or join a youth chamber orchestra. They can create masterpieces in an art camp, take the stage in “Sleeping Beauty”, throw a bowl on a pottery wheel, and learn how to impress their friends with magic tricks.
With the District’s goal of having every child entering kindergarten prepared to meet all of the kindergarten program objectives, our ECFE (Early Childhood Family Education) and School Readiness programs serve our youngest learners. These programs promote a child’s growth and development by providing a wide array of age appropriate learning opportunities planned by highly qualified teachers.
You can register for our classes at 934-3048, by mail, or online at www.stpetercommunityedonline.com. Oh, and don’t forget to register early. The two most dreaded tasks in our office are to cancel a class because of low enrollment or to turn you away because the class you have your heart set on taking has already filled.
We are always looking for new class ideas. If you have any suggestions for a class or can recommend an instructor, we’d enjoy hearing from you (507-934-3048).
