Objective: The Family Learning Center provides an opportunity for parents and students to share the learning experience so that the family will be united in the effort to educate students, parents, and adults of the Hancock community. Programs and activities are provided that encourage parental and community involvement in the education of our students. Programs are held at different times throughout the year at a variety of venues including the library, public school, churches, and community sites. Programs cover adult health, family literacy, physical fitness, computers, the Internet, protecting children from Internet abuses, and academic education of adults and children.
Curriculum: The Center will fulfill the needs of the community as it defines them. The curriculum will be developed and altered, adjusted, or created by the stated needs of the parents and adults of the Hancock Community. Subjects such as local history, family history, nutrition, education, sports, CPR, yoga, music, literacy, cooking, quilting, Spanish and more have already been identified. The program will try to raise the learning desires of all members of the community.
