As the school year comes to a close and summer approaches, Jefferson College is offering a variety of Red Cross certified swimming lessons for children of all ages, beginning as early as six months old.
Coordinated through the College’s Continuing Education Department, the summer swim program is designed to promote water safety, knowledge, aquatic adjustment, and increased swimming readiness and skills. All lessons are taught by certified Red Cross instructors in the Olympic-sized indoor pool/natatorium on the Jefferson College Hillsboro campus.
With an opportunity for beginning Jefferson College students to improve their reading, writing and math placement test scores, the College will offer an intensive seven-week program called JASSI (Jeffco Aspiring Student Scholar Institute) this summer.
By improving COMPASS placement scores, participants can decrease developmental education courses that will save them time and money toward their college career path.
Jefferson College and COMTREA will co-host the sixth annual “Take Back the Night” event on Thursday, April 28, beginning at 5:30 p.m. outside the Student Center on the Hillsboro campus in conjunction with April’s designation as National Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). In case of inclement weather, the event will be held inside the Student Center Café.
Take Back the Night is an international event recognizing survivors of sexual violence and abuse, along with their advocates, and anyone who wishes to shatter the silence and stop the violence.
Prospective students interested in enrolling for intersession, summer, or fall classes are invited to attend one of two Jefferson College “Our Price is Right” Showcase and Registration events on Tuesday, April 12, at the Hillsboro campus (1000 Viking Drive) and on Monday, April 25, at Jefferson College Arnold (1687 Missouri State Road).
Each event will last from 3-8 p.m. and attendees may stop by at any time. No appointment is necessary to attend.
The Jefferson College Employee Support Rah Rah subcommittee recently made a $500 donation to The Backstoppers charity from proceeds raised during the recent “Some Like It Hot, Hot, Hot” Employee Chili Cook Off.
