Summer will be here before you know it, and so will cries of “there’s nothing to do,” or blank stares into computer or tablet games.
This summer, let’s get our kids (and ourselves) active with Fredericksburg Independent School District’s Community Education program.
You should have received a mailer from FISD listing all the offerings from June through August. There are more than two full pages of “Kid Stuff” activities, from Little Billies sports camps, to Rocket Camp to baking, soccer, nature camp, dance team, arts, star-gazing, painting, theater and more. (There’s even a “Dinosaur Roarrr” camp for young boys and a “Mermaid Lagoon” camp and “Butterfly” camp just for girls.)
Adults can take part in yoga, Zumba, country and western dance and Mah-jongg. Even the family pet can get involved with dog obedience courses.
Other offerings include a drip irrigation course, and several “Money Matters” courses that teach the basics of finance and job hunting.
