Additional off-site Friday Fun Trips are offered from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm on each Friday of College for Kids.
One of the new classes being offered this year is Music Composer’s Jam Session, where students will use software called Finale Notepad to compose original songs and pieces of music. Another new class is S.T.E.M. Studio, a spin-off of the S.T.E.A.M. Heat course for older students.
