Do your 2011 New Year’s resolutions include self-improvement? Do you yearn to learn Scottish country dancing? How about bread baking, aerobics, Latin, silversmithing or coping with the loss of a pet? All of these classes and many others are offered through the Salt Lake School District Community Education Program during its winter session beginning January 18 (for most classes – some start a little earlier or later). There is still time to take advantage of many of its low cost learning opportunities.
There are two convenient Sugar House Community Learning centers, where offices are open from 2-8 p.m. Monday through Friday
- Highland Community Learning Center
2166 South 1700 East
- Hillside Community Learning Center
2375 E. Garfield Avenue
Details, such as those listed below can be found in the Salt Lake Community Education Winter 2011 on-line catalog
- Where? Almost all classes are located at the specific learning center with a few exceptions, e.g., the Highland Community Learning Center is offering a class on bread baking which will be taught at the House of Bread, 2005 East 2700 South.
- How Much? The cost per class varies, but most are bargains compared to taking them elsewhere; some classes require extra fees, e.g. cake decorating, silversmithing, tie-dying, etc.

In addition to the enrichment and recreational courses, there are also special opportunities for:
Children’s courses including elementary through high school tutoring and specific enrichment courses, e.g., ballet and karate for children.
Adult academic support classes including:
- How to complete your high school education
