Baylor University's Center for Community Learning and Enrichment has released its schedule of the popular Super Saturday classes for students from preschool through 10th grade. The sessions will run one Saturday each month, October through April.

The first classes begin Oct. 6 with "Pumpkins Galore!" as kids ages three through kindergarten explore, measure, squash, cook and read about the biggest fall vegetable. Loretta Rudd, a doctoral candidate in educational psychology, will lead the class from 9 to 11:30 a.m. at Baylor's Piper Child Development Center at 315 Washington Ave.

First through third graders can enjoy theatrical expression in "Newspaper Theater" from 9 a.m. to noon in the Hooper-Schaefer dance-movement studio on the Baylor campus. Michael Nangle, a doctoral student in theater production, will use newspapers to help the students create a world in the theater and perform a short play at the end of the class.

"Paper Capers" will challenge fourth and fifth graders to master paper art by making paper boxes, origami figures, cards with moving parts and more. The class, led by Jeanie Fitzpatrick of the Waco Calligraphy Guild, will be held from 9 a.m. to noon in room 108 in the Draper Academic Building on the Baylor campus.

Rob McAngus, a teacher and technology specialist, will instruct sixth and seventh graders in "Make Your Own Web Page" from 9 a.m. to noon in the Draper 200 computer lab.

Eighth through tenth graders will create a beautifully designed wall hanging by using cording and knots in "Macrame Fun" from 9 a.m. until noon in Draper room 215. Betty Myers, a Waco Montessori teacher, will guide students in the old, but fascinating art form.

All classes are $30, which includes all lab materials and facilities fees. Registration is limited. For more information, call (254) 710-2171 or visit www.baylor.edu/SOE/CCLE/.
