Cursive is the art of connecting letters with a flourish. Once a basic skill taught to all students, it is now disappearing into oblivion. This class seeks to stop that downward spiral by providing reasons why this skill is important to the brain, self-esteem, note taking, letter-writing, family history research, etc. Opportunities in a workshop setting will take place to polish up old skills or learn basic cursive skills, depending on the needs of class participants. Participants will be encouraged to practice at home 5 minutes a day and possibly find a pen-pal to practice with.
This FEMA sponsored class provides tools to educate and empower the public to act in an emergency situation before professional help arrives. The program instructs individuals how to provide life saving care before first responders arrive by learning how to protect the injured from harm, stop bleeding, position the injured so they can breathe and to provide comfort to the injured. This approach builds a network of lifesaving individuals throughout the nation. You are the help until help arrives!
Fee: Free but pre-registration required
Do you struggle with technology? Google has many great tools you can use for free! If you want to use Google for personal use, or you use it at work, we will explore the amazing tools provided. Learn to present information, share with colleagues, collaboratively edit, and use other time-saving tools. (If you do not have a current google account, we will create one in the first class.) Bring a laptop or we will have computers available. The beauty of Google is that you can access it anywhere you can go online. Thanks to a generous donation by OTelCo we are able to offer this on-going open lab time at no cost.
