Rogue Outreach Center hosts open house

ROGUE RIVER — The Rogue Outreach Center has scheduled an open house Tuesday to introduce its new mission as an educational enrichment center for children in grades four through six.

The open house will be from 6 to 7 p.m. at the center, 211 Pine St.

The center used to be an after-school fun center for students from the middle school just up the street, but they have moved to the high school — about 11/2 miles away — and the center has reinvented itself.

The nonprofit Rogue Outreach Center's new emphasis is on after-school enrichment classes. Between Sept. 4 and Dec. 21, students in grades four through six will learn everything from music and money management to yoga, sports and watershed awareness.

Afternoons will start with snacks at 2:15 p.m., then class from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m., and games and help with homework from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. The fee will be $25 monthly. For another $10 a month, day care will be available from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m.

Classes will be open to all children in the Rogue River School District, but enrollment will be limited to 20. Only eight openings remain. For information, call Rogue Outreach Center President Dave Ehrhardt at 541-621-6361.

The center also has a new, part-time administrator, Tasha Holly.
