PRE-SCHOOL PROGRAMS<br />

ON SCHOOL ROAD<br />

ON SCHOOL ROAD is <strong>Parks</strong> and <strong>Recreation</strong>’s answer to the community need for affordable, creative, exciting<br />

early childhood programming.<br />

At ON SCHOOL ROAD, children are given the necessary tools to build self-awareness and self-esteem. It is a<br />

place for children to deepen their respect for others and the environment and to think independently and<br />

creatively. We foster imagination, exploration, ingenuity, and compassion to help children become active<br />

problem solvers and creative members of our community.<br />

We believe children need a place to feel empowered, comfortable and safe to be ready to explore,<br />

investigate and experiment with their surroundings. Our goal is to help foster creative, independent, critical<br />

thinkers! Our program is for children age 2, 3, and 4/5 (Pre-K) and we offer Lunch Bunch for preschoolers<br />

and Kindergarteners.<br />

For a complete list of classes, schedules, and a registration form, please visit the program website,<br />

BEGINNER BRIDGE LESSONS DUPLICATE BRIDGE WITH DAN DEVLEIG<br />

As our population ages gracefully, pursuits and interests<br />

that previously seemed unexciting are viewed in a<br />

different light. There is a shift away from punishing<br />

physical stress and toward the refinement and nourishing<br />

of the intellect. Bridge is a perfect example of this<br />

phenomenon. It combines mental exercise of the<br />

reasoning faculties, the short- and long-term memory<br />

centers, the planning and collation skills, social<br />

interaction techniques, and other mental calisthenics<br />

useful in everyday life.<br />

This class is for the player with very little or no bridge<br />

experience.<br />

Computer Fundamentals<br />

This introductory course is for those with limited or no computer experience who would like to test the<br />

waters. It will include turning the computer on and off, using the mouse and keyboard, understanding the<br />

meaning of simple computer terms, opening and closing a program, and using the desktop. This is excellent<br />

preparation for Beyond Beginners - Word 2007/2010. $25<br />

Beyond Beginners - Word 2007/2010<br />

Step into the present to acquaint yourself with the Word 2007 program. It has a different appearance from<br />

the Word you have been using. The familiar toolbars and menus from previous versions of Word are gone!<br />

This course will explore the Word Window, Office Button, Terminology, Ribbon Organization, Quick Access<br />

Toolbar, Document views, plus commonly used features in Word. You will learn how to do the same things<br />

you’ve always done such as entering, changing, deleting, copying, pasting, underlining, aligning, saving, as<br />

well as inserting a bullet or number in text in a Word 2007 environment. $25<br />

Basic Excel<br />

This two-session course will introduce the basics of this popular spreadsheet program including essential<br />

vocabulary, concepts and features. Become familiar with entering, editing, and formatting numerical and<br />

text data. Experiment with basic database capabilities. Learn to design meaningful, attractive and useful<br />

spreadsheets. (Worksheets included) $25<br />

Getting Around The Internet: Age 50+<br />

This course is an introduction to use of The Internet. It begins with an overview followed by the concepts and<br />

terminology needed to get you “surfing the web” for specific information and fun. Use of the mouse and<br />

knowledge of the keyboard is required. Students learn to use Google and Yahoo! more effectively to search<br />

for and download information and pictures. Also covers attaching images and documents to email (Yahoo!),<br />

managing favorites, save, and print. $15<br />

Picasa Photo Workshop<br />

Want to do something with all those pictures on your computer… or those pictures which “will be on your<br />

computer? Google's Picasa software lets you organize, edit, and upload your photos in quick, easy steps, and<br />

the software is free! Picasa is an image organizer and image viewer for organizing and editing digital photos,<br />

plus an integrated photo-sharing website. "Picasa" is a blend of the name of Spanish painter Pablo Picasso,<br />

the phrase mi casa for "my house," and "pic" for pictures. $25<br />

Organize Your Memoir Research and Prepare it for Publication<br />

Become an Author! This course will provide comprehensive information about options for printing when<br />

preparing a memoir for print in book form. This course will outline how to set up your copy in order to have<br />

continuity among the pages, graphics to enhance the book’s material, and practical points which will save<br />

you money when you take the manuscript to a professional printer or local UPS store. This is not a research<br />

course; it is a workshop to help you organize your research before publication. $25<br />
