Submitted on: 05-25-2007

Parents and kids will be glad to know Aims Community College’s 26th Annual College for Kids runs on Fridays throughout the month of June. Because of major construction on the new Allied Health & Sciences and Aviation buildings, and the renovations at Ed Beaty Hall, the College For Kids programs will take place at the Aims Corporate Education Center located at 5590 W. 11th St. “This year our space is limited, but we’re offering some really great classes,” said Marsha Harmon, Aims’ coordinator for the College For Kids program. “Next year, with all the new and remodeled space we’ll have, we’re sure parents and kids will be thrilled with our return to the traditional College For Kids schedule.” This year, for kids in grades 1-5 a different course is offered each Friday starting on June 1 with a fun class that’s all about a beach vacation; all kinds of fun games will be featured on June 8; a whole day of pirate make-believe on June 15; photography, computers and model building on June 22; and magic and crafts on June 29. For the kids in grades 5-8, College For Kids is a great way to turn summer free-time into valuable lessons. The older kids can learn how to save a life with the American Heart Association’s Heart Saver CPR certification class on June 15. They can also earn their American Red Cross Babysitting Certificate on June 22 or June 29. And, kids in grades 3-8 can learn the fundamentals of the game of kings, or chess, on June 15. Most programs are all-day-Friday events that include breakfast and lunch. Call Aims today at (970) 339-6492 or visit for more information on how to register for classes.
