Home Alone

Does your child know what to do if a stranger comes to the door or how to get help in an emergency? The Home Alone class is designed to teach children simple rules and procedures for responsible self-care. Students will be asked to print an activity packet that we will send along with the Zoom class link and we’ll work through it together as we have safe, open discussions of the topics. March 10, 2-3 pm. Fee: $15. Offered through CCACE. Information and registration:

For students in grades 4-6

Podcasting 101

If you’ve ever listened to a podcast and thought, “I can do that!” now’s your chance! Join us for a crash course that will give you all the tools you need to start planning and recording your own podcast. You will learn the ins and outs of a recording studio. You will become familiar with how to best use a microphone, how to record using professional software, how to adjust the sound quality, and how to save your file in the most useful format for your intended purpose. You’ll also learn voice-acting techniques from a professional voice and broadcasting coach. You will practice warming up and using your voice, learn breathing techniques, learn how to enunciate for “radio,” and will gain tips and tricks to get your podcast noticed. By the end of the course, you’ll have the know-how to prepare and record your first podcast episode!
