I ' Carnegie Kids' College Moving to Junior High School Carnegie Kids' College, the two-week summer arls and hu- manities enrichment prograJn for elementary students that was launched at Carnegie Hall In Lewisburg last year, will be back this summer in a new location and with an even larger array of classes for children. Kids' College will be held Monday through Friday, July 11-22, from 8:30 until 12:30 p.m. at Eastern Greenbrier Jun- ior High School. The new loca- tion will provide a safe, cool and accessible home for Kids' Col- lege. It also will provide space for an additional 50 children to par- ticipate in the program, to which a total of 150 students will be accepted. Another plus this year is the collaboration between Carnegie Hall and two other local arts or- ganizations to provide instruc- tors drawn from their ranks. Education Director Christy Clemons-Rodgers has invited Greenbrier Valley Theatre and the Trillium Collective to provide drama and dance instructors. Class selections will include many of the courses such as pottery, mask making, art, clowning, and quilting that made the program such a hit last year. New classes In kite making, weaving, basketry and art will further enhance the curriculum. Another Innovative develop- ment this summer is the addi- tion of a teacher training conlpo- nent to Kids' College. Actress/ writer Margaret Baker, who has served as Artist-in-Residence in Pocahontas County for the past two years will offer an improvisa- tion class for teachers in addi- tion to teaching a creative writ- ing class for children. Teachers also will observe other classes and will receive continuing edu- cation credits for their participa- tion in the program. Carnegie Kids' College is open to children who will be complet- ing grades one through six this spring. Each child will be able to take three or four different courses, depending on the length of the classes they choose. Tuition for Carnegie Hall nlenlbers (excluding student memberships) is $50 per child. For non-members, tuition is $75 per child. A limited number of scholarships are available for slt|dents who might not other- wise be able to attend. "leachers or parents are encouraged to contact Clemons-Rodgers for in- formation about scholarships for deserving children. Carnegie Hall is committed to keeping the tuition at Kids' Col- lege affordable so that as many children as possible can partici- pate. Tuitions do not nearly cover the cost of lhe program. Carnegie Hall has applied to the state for grant funding, but even if the grant is received, it will not completely make up the short- lhll. ]f you would like to support Kids' College through a sponsor- ship, by helping out as a vohm- teer. or by providing a scholar- ship for a deserving student, please contact Anita Howard in the Carnegie Hall office, 645- 7917.

Slone of Bluefield. West Virginia. Governor Caperton said, "This bill prevents the censorship of historical documents based on religious references. E(h|ca(ional devices Stlch as the Declaration of Independence and tile Constihltion of the Untied Stales will relnain in West Virginia classrooms. Sit|dents in our stale should have the opportu- nity.., and the privilege . . . to study those documents that led to the foundation and tradition of Our eounlry." West Virginia teachers need not fear discussing the role of re- ligion in American hislory and may use historical documents and government publications as educational resources or teach- ing devices even though they contain religious references.
