The Ames Community School District’s Super Summer enrichment program has openings in several classes.
Coordinator Charlyn Mason said the classes offered this year will give students a variety of opportunities beyond the school curriculum.
“The depth and variety of classes this program offers for students reflects the high caliber of instructors from the community who share their expertise in their chosen field,” Mason said.
