I have enjoyed taking several different classes through NISD including a sushi class, advanced French class, a first-time homebuyers session, and a financial planning class for women. Although my daughter will be out of town during the week they’re offering this awesome class – Robotics using Legos – I contacted the coordinators and they graciously setup another class for a different time (the response was QUICK!)
Some classes I haven’t tried yet but want to include:
Get the FREE course catalog by mail if you don’t already – if you do stop throwing it away and check out the awesome offers!
Have a workshop in mind? Teach it! They’re always looking!
Some other cool links on the NISD website:

- Volunteers/Mentors – everything you need to know and fill out in order to volunteer in the NISD. (Parents – fill this out before you try to help out in the classroom – go to your child’s school prepared!)
