WNC Fallon to Offer College for Kids Classes

Students on campus are getting younger and younger each year. In fact, 5-year-olds will be attending Western Nevada College Fallon this summer. That's because the college is offering a variety of non-credit College for Kids classes where children can augment their elementary education by learning basic etiquette, story writing, conversational Spanish, and more.

Basic Etiquette: Smooth Walking & Talking (CFK 2876, Sec. F01), offered Monday-Friday, July 2-6, 8:45-10:15 a.m., will expose children ages 7-12 to basic etiquette including introductions, telephone calls/messages, table manners, thank you notes, and more. Each lesson will show why it is important to exhibit good manners at all times, regardless of how little others might show, and how all it takes is a little self-confidence to handle a social situation with grace and poise. Cost: $45.

Story Hour (CFK 2702, Sec. F01), available Monday-Friday, July 2-6, 10:30 a.m.-noon, will get kids excited about books and reading, and teach them the basic elements of story writing. Children will be exposed to a variety of authors ranging from Mo Willems to Hans Christian Andersen, and each lesson includes the reading aloud of two or more picture books. The culmination is the creation of a simple illustrated story by the students. Cost: $45, which includes supplies.

Other College for Kids topics include creative writing June 25-28; ballroom dancing July 9-20; conversational Spanish July 9-18; Bob Ross painting on July 14; babysitting training on July 28; and babysitting CPR on August 4.

More than 30 children from the On Stage! CFK class are also participating in an "Annie Jr." musical production on Friday, June 29, 7 p.m., and Saturday, June 30, 1 and 7 p.m., at the Old High School Pit, 650 S. Maine St.

Classes will not meet on Wednesday, July 4.
