District 128 offers summer youth programs
The District 128 Community Education Program offers afternoon summer classes for children.
Classes include guitar lessons, hands-on computer experiences, cooking, green power, ooey-gooey science, fishing, sewing, and self-defense classes. Two local artists will be on hand to take your child’s artistic talent to the next level with drawing, sketching and watercolor lessons. MoonNIE the Magnifi’cent (a Renaissance Faire performer) will present two theatrical performance workshops. Most classes take place in the afternoon so as not to interfere with morning summer school. Space is limited so register early.
Parents can also introduce their children to high school athletics by signing them up for a summer sport camp. Camps take place at Libertyville and Vernon Hills High Schools.
For a full selection of classes and to register online, visit the D128 Community Education website at www.ComEd128.org. For additional information, contact Diane Phillips at (847) 932-2019.
