The Continuing Education Department

Our continuing education department provides classes for all age groups. The programs that fall under the continuing education department are LEARNwest, Adventures, and Summer of Learning

LEARNwest offers a wide range of classes for adults who want to expand their skills, make everyday life better, and want to try something new. LEARNwest classes are offered evenings and weekends.

Our Adventures program has fun classes, fun teachers and fun, enriching experiences for K-8 students after school, in the evenings and on the weekends. Adventures provides a way for students to expand their knowledge or skills in an area of interest and try something beyond the classes that they have during the school day.

Our Summer of Learning programs provide fun and enriching educational experiences during the summer months for students completing grades K-12.

Sue Otte, Continuing Education Specialist, 13 years

I coordinate the classes for the LEARNwest program. The favorite part of my day is hearing from the students who really enjoy the classes they take. My hope is that the LEARNwest classes offer opportunities for people to enrich their lives and learn something new. When I’m not planning LEARNwest classes, I enjoy spending time with my family, going to movies, and trying new restaurants.


Jess Lieb, Youth Programmer, 5 years

I plan the after school and weekend classes for kids along with many of our summer children’s programs. The favorite part of my job is being able to offer fun and enriching classes/programs for kids to enjoy! People Focus is the most important Community Education value because without focusing on the needs of the people we serve, we can’t make the positive impact on the community that we strive for. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading books, watching movies, and finding ways to be creative.
