The Compass unveils a new look for summer

The community education brochure gets an overhaul

Some get a new look come summer time and "The Compass" is no exception.

The community education listing for the Park City School District used to be a three-fold publication printed in blue and white text. The old look is no more.

With the summer 2006 Compass, colorful photographs grace the front and back and its new book format allows listings for more classes.

Leisure learning coordinator Jane Toly is behind the redesign.

"It was getting difficult to fit everything into the old brochure, our program keeps growing," she said.

Toly added she wasn’t thrilled with the old appearance.

"It was boring before," she said.

After going to a conference in which nobody picked up a copy of "The Compass," Toly said she wanted something that was more eye catching.

"I just want to reach more people," she said.

This is a project that has been in the works for quite a while.

"I’m excited about it because this is something I’ve wanted to do since last fall," she said.

Among the new classes are: Abracadabra Magic Camp, Chef School Junior, Harry Potter Week and Pee Wee Photographers.

Also a highlight, Toly said the district has partnered with Repertory Dance Theater to offer movement classes and a dance workshop.

Many of the classes are geared toward younger children.

"We have a lot of classes for kids that are pre-school age. We don’t always have a ton of things for them but we do this time," she said.

In addition to fun activities, Toly said the district’s offerings have an academic base.

Many classes are filling up quickly and Toly encourages parents to register soon. Classes start on June 12. The compass is available at the local schools, library branches and the Park City School District main office located at 2700 Kearns Blvd. An online copy may be found at under Community Ed.
