Which classes have you taken at the Adult School?

  • Zumba (took the class twice)
  • Yoga (took the class twice)
  • Aqua aerobics (once)
  • Photography (once)
  • Gardening (once)
  • Defensive Driving class (once)

I enjoyed each of the classes I’ve taken there.  I came away learning something new from each class.  My favorite class was Gardening.  I was a complete novice when I started taking the class and by the end of the year-long session I had grown all different types of flowers and vegetables.  In fact, my 5-year-old daughter, Lydia joined me in class on Sunday mornings to help me plant and prune my flowers and vegetables.  It was a great experience for both of us!

What’s your favorite thing about living in South Orange/Maplewood?

The proximity to the city, diversity and small town community feel. I also love the parks, libraries, restaurants, Maplewoodstock (never miss it!), and community pools.
