A Message from the Leadership Team

Community Education was present at the Neapolitan Family Magazine's Education & Camp EXPO on Thursday, March 24. We highlighted the Science Technology Engineering, Art, and Technology (S.T.E.A.M.) summer camp we are offering to 3rd - 5th graders this summer at Lorenzo Walker Technical College. A raffle took place for a lucky participant to win a basket of goodies. The Spring ACE catalog was also available for parents to pick up. Over 1,000 people stopped by the booth. Check out our monthly ad in the Neapolitan Family Magazine.


We are also gearing up for the Spring session. Catalogs are in stands across the county. Do you know a business that would allow us to place our catalogs? If so, share with the office. Kudos to the staff for working diligently in teaching their individual classes. I see some fantastic things happening in classes. This week I will be "popping in" to take pictures to highlight our classes on Facebook. If you haven't already, like our page--Collier Adult & Community Education. Summer book has gone to the printer. We are hoping to have the final product back by the first week of Spring classes. Thank you for all you do to ensure our program is successful.
