The Three Forks School District Adult Education Classes are set to begin on February 5, with eight classes available for area residents.
The 2024 Classes include Navigating Computers and Social Media, Latin America Crafts, Embroidery, Tawni's Dance Fitness, Mahjongg, Woods, Pickleball, and Metals.
According to Program Director Tyler Palmer, the district considers the building a resource for the kids and community.
"This program is a service that reflects that. Our expanded building gives us area enough to host dance and fitness classes concurrent to winter activities," Palmer said.
The registration fee for all classes is $20 and needs to be paid at the High School Office. Courses with a material fee need to be paid directly to the instructor.
The Three Forks Adult Education program is scheduled for eight weeks.
