Children’s summer writing course offered in July
The Johnson County Park & Recreation District will offer a way to help prevent a summer learning slide with new creative writing classes being offered for two different age groups in Shawnee.
The classes are called Keep Kids Learning and include one section for ages 6-8, and another for ages 9-12. Both involve four 50-minute sessions, which will meet on Thursdays beginning July 14 at the Mill Creek Activity Center, 6518 Vista Dr.
The younger age group session begins at 5:30 p.m., while the session for older children begins at 6:30 p.m. For either age group, the cost for four 50-minute sessions is $40 per person for Johnson County residents or $45 per person for nonresidents.
