Within days of our classes being cancelled at our various locations, we were up and running using video online conferencing tools so many of our students were able to continue their progress and we could continue to connect them with each other. Over time, students and instructors adapted and found a new love of the online platforms and kept themselves busy with juggling, knitting, strumming their guitars, painting watercolor images as well as other classes that kept them moving forward. Even our Italian language students went from reading an article in Italian about Rome’s most famous dish “Cacio e Pepe” to preparing the dish together and dining in Zoom companionship.
Princeton Adult School’s mission has always been life-long learning opportunities to the residents of the greater Princeton area. Over the past 81 years we have been serving the community except one time during World War II when we needed to halt our classes for a short time. During this health crisis, we are determined to continue our goal of meeting the learning interests and needs of the adult community in a convenient and enjoyable educational experience, but we need your help to do that.
The financial impact on our school is serious as not all of our classes continued and many refunds were processed over the last few months. We are asking you to support us on this Giving Tuesday in any amount possible. Your donation of any size will prove invaluable to us as we prepare for future semesters of learning, and exploring together.
Stay safe, healthy and positive. We are all in this together.
