For residents seeking to learn something new this Spring, Lindenhurst School District is once again offering "Learning for Life" adult and continuing education classes.
And the deadlines are nearing.
For adult and continuing education classes offered by the District, the deadlines are February 1 (mail-in) and February 5 (in-person). Classes begin for the Spring 2012 semester on February 25.
There are a variety of courses in a wide array of categories, including Computers, Cooking, Creative and Fine Arts, Dance, Sports and Exercise, and Enriching and Informative.
For example, residents could learn how to make some comfort food favorites and learn how to make jewelry. For those seeking to get and stay in shape, there's Zumba, Pilates, Spinning, Body Sculpting and Fitness for Seniors.
Residents could also take such classes as Guitar and Italian for Everyone. They could get their lifeguard certification and take a boating or safe driving course. An SAT Prep course is also available.

Registrants must be 16 and older. Mail-in registration deadline for these classes is February 1, and should be sent to Adult/Continuing Education, Lindenhurst Public Schools, P.O. Box 621, Lindenhurst, New York 11757.
In-person registration is scheduled for February 5, at the Lindenhurst Middle School, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
