SUMMER IS ALMOST OVER
The long lazy days in the sun for students is over already. Did that go by fast. It is getting a little cooler at night and the sun is setting at a different angle already. Smells of canning and pickling are in the air.
Shorter days bring our thoughts back to where we are going education wise. Time to start thinking about books and courses. This year will bring many changes to the Centre. For starters, we have a new program coordinator, Joyce Gangloff is joining our staff. We are so glad to have her and hope you will drop in some time just to say hi and welcome her.
Also, we are going to lose Pam Gagne for a year, she is preparing her nest for a new baby in October. We haven't hired her replacement yet, but are looking. We need to congratulate both of these ladies and Good Luck also to Johanna White. She will be missed, but has decided to stop traveling the highways and has acquired a position at the school in Ear Falls.
Other exciting things are happening here at the Centre. We have new courses coming up and if we have not covered something that you are interested in, call us as 727¬3207 and let us know and we will try and make it happen.
INTERNATIONAL LITERACY DAYSeptember 8th, 2006 is International Literacy Day. It is a day that we set aside to bring awareness for the importance of learning and improving literacy skills. With our ever changing society, literacy should be seen as an important evolutionary variable in every society. The more a society progresses, the greater is the need for adjustment to new demands and pressures, making literacy a lifelong necessity for all, in all societies. We here at the Red Lake District Adult Learning Centre are celebrating all week, from September 5th to the 8th. We are open from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm and are hoping you will stop in to have a coffee and a dainty and chat with us. We are giving away free books and bookmarks and will be taking registrations for classes or one of the interest courses that we are offering this fall. Our students last year made a beautiful rag quilt and we will have tickets available here and they are $1.00 each, with the draw happening on September 8th. Contact North will be having their open house at the same time, making it possible for you to check out the new college courses also. They too are having a few draws of their own.
