Taught by AARP Driver Safety Instructor Pat Latimer

Cost: $20 for AARP members; $25 for non-members (payment is due on the day of the class and checks are preferable)

According to AARP, the rules of the road have changed and the demographics of American drivers are evolving. The driving landscape has also changed dramatically since many American drivers received their driver’s licenses.  Everyone can benefit from a refresher course that helps drivers stay current with driving laws and new technology inside and outside of vehicles. Keeping pace with the changes helps drivers remain healthy, independent and confident when on the road. The new AARP Smart Driver™ Course delivers on AARP’s goal to promote independence and enhance the quality of life for drivers age 50 and over.

Visit the AARP site for more information on the class and the benefits of participating:

Looking after the family’s bicycle-repair business while his parents take a short vacation should be a snap for Dewey.  His older sister, Lil, will help look after the younger siblings and the farm duties.  Then a fuel shortage strands his parents, and brings on a crunch of repair work at the same time.

We’ll teach you how to display health, lives, score, splash screens and high score tables. Using drag and drop programming, you’ll be creating exciting, professional looking games you can play with your friends.

This is a great class to take with friends. No experience is necessary and you can take this class as many times as you like. Students take home a CD with their game at the end of the class. Software works on Windows OS only.

Each 2-day class runs from 1:00-4:00 p.m. For Grades 4 and up. Please register. Space is limited and you MUST attend both sessions.

This event will be funded through a special legislative project from the New York State Education Department.

Humphrey, the classroom hamster of Room 26, loves spending weekends with his classmates. This week, he is going home with Richie to help him with his science experiment, but Humphrey finds a surprise at Richie’s house. Poppy the puppy is bouncy and barky and is a little too eager to play! Humphrey needs to get out of his cage to help Richie, but can he do that and stay out of Poppy’s way at the same time?
