Free computer classes offered to senior citizens

Senior citizens interested in learning about basic computer operations and the Internet may sign up for free classes offered at Hamilton High School.

The four-session course is offered to senior citizens who would consider volunteering to be a part of the Seniors and Students Program – a partnership between the Hamilton School District and the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program of Waukesha County. The classes will run from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. February 9, 11, 16 and 18 at Hamilton High School. Sussex community members Tom Hill and Ann Wegner will provide hands-on training for the course.

“Introduction to Computers and the Internet” is for people who want to learn about basic computer operations and getting started on the Web. The class will cover:

  • introduction to the computer,
  • basic word processing,
  • basic Internet,
  • basic e-mail, and
  • how to e-mail digital pictures.

The class also covers security over the Web. People who take the course should have a computer and on-line access. Those with typing skills will have an advantage, but it is not required.

Participants will be offered volunteer opportunities that include flexible time frames, various school locations or working from home. Enrollment in each course is limited. Thanks to the generosity of North Shore Bank, participants will receive a free Flash drive. Please call Heather Krisman at (262) 246-1973 x1100 to reserve a seat.

Hamilton High School is located at W220 N6151 Town Line Rd., Sussex.
