In Esko, we are happy to be welcoming our students back into the school buildings and our community education programs.
Currently, we are offering after school clubs for students in grades 1-6. In October, we have a few options working with Savannah’s Pottery and a couple of new clubs offered by Northern Outdoors Club (NOC). Hallow-hoot and Prehistoric Skills are the October offerings from NOC. Kids get to learn some new survival skills and learn about owls and their nocturnal activity.
Registration for these opportunities are available online through our school website. Look under the Community Education tab. In addition, we will be offering another driver's education class for new drivers. The class will run after school the first two weeks of November.
Working under the new guidelines for use of school facilities and doing our best to continue to provide opportunities for our students and adults in the community has proven to be a challenge. We believe creativity will prevail in the end. We are currently looking to begin “check-out” classes for adults to get together with their social group or family and create some amazing art projects. Keep your eyes and ears open for our future “out of the box” classes.
We are always looking for new ways to be engaged with our community, so if you have ideas of what you would like to see offered in this world of social distancing, we are open to your ideas. In Community Education, we are firm believers in building relationships and communities, and we will continue to look for ways to make connections in our community. Strong connections equal strong communities!
