Community School


Hello, everyone!

The Middlesex Community School website has been updated, and we are back in person with new Holiday classes and workshops and Winter 2022 classes. I’m excited about our outstanding lineup, including Zumba® Fitness/Toning. Join Judy Aldana for this “fitness-party”, held at Parker Elementary School. Zumba Gold will also be held at Parker Elementary School and is tailored for active adults who are looking for a modified Zumba® class that recreates the original Zumba moves at a lower intensity.   Bring your friends and enjoy a class that fuses fitness, entertainment, and culture into an exhilarating dance-fitness sensation!  


Introduction to American Sign Language (ASL) will again be offered with the instructor, Karen Perko. Are you interested in learning about the Deaf community, the integration of American Sign Language (ASL) in everyday life, and learning how to communicate with friends and loved ones? Please join instructor Karen Perko for this 8-week course that will cover basic and intermediate American Sign Language. For those who have completed Introduction to American Sign Language (ASL), Karen Perko is presenting Advanced Study of American Sign Language (ASL) an In-Depth Analysis of Deaf Culture, to increase your ASL fluency.


What would the holidays be without the enticing aroma and taste of mouth-watering, homemade cookies?  Our Parent and Me Cookie Decorating Workshop returns for its seventeenth popular year! Bring plenty of cookie tins and your cameras to capture the fun with your favorite elf at this fun-filled event! Ages 4 and up are welcome. Please register early! This class sells out every year!


Does the thought of making holiday cookies (and the clean-up!) overwhelm you?  Turn it into a fun and productive “girl’s day out” with friends and family, and have a blast in the kitchen with Patti and me!  Join us for our annual Holiday Cookie Workshop and bake a huge assortment of cookies for gifting or serving at holiday parties. A scrumptious lunch and beverage are also included. Have a favorite cookie you want considered to make for this class? Please let me know! This class is a sellout EVERY year, so make certain to reserve your seat early!


We have more classes and TRIPS in development! Please feel free to contact me if you want to know more about the classes/trips or if you want to give or suggest a class. 


So….  This Holiday/Winter season, join our group of students seeking professional, recreational, physical, and personal development in a myriad of areas.  Middlesex Community School will help you develop the skills that will enable you to achieve your goals!  I hope you are able to attend our outstanding courses!   I look forward to seeing you!            


Best regards,
