TURNER — MSAD 52 Adult & Community Education still has a few classes left on their fall schedule. Sign up now for the remaining choices.

Meet Your Guardian Angel: Here is a relaxing invitation to meet your guardian angel in this class on Dec. 3. Receive guidance and support from your angel, leaving you with a sense of connection and comfort. Students should bring a lawn or beach chair or mat, blankets and pillows.

Holiday Carolers Wooden Craft: Create a unique seasonal craft in a one-night class on Dec. 3 that you can use for decorating your home. Register with your friends and family to design one wooden caroler or a group of them.

German Star Ornaments: These are made of paper strips forming a 3D origami ornament. Once completed, the stars are dipped in paraffin wax and sprinkled with glitter. This class will be held Dec. 10 and everything is provided. All stars made by the instructor will be given to her students.

HiSET/GED test deadline

The High School Equivalency Diploma replaced the General Education Development diploma as Maine’s high school equivalency test in 2013.

The HiSET covers the same content areas: reading, writing, math, science and social studies. Test-takers who started with the GED will be able to finish by taking the remainder of the tests with HiSET until Dec. 31.

This means that if you have passed some of your GED tests but have not completed all five tests, you may take the remainder of the HiSET tests to obtain your diploma. If you do not take the remaining tests by Dec. 31, GED scores will be invalid and you will have to retake all five tests.

There is no charge to test takers for testing or preparation classes. Students will need to meet the same requirements for HiSET as they did for GED to take the exams: minimum age requirement, photo ID, pre-test and HiSET practice tests.

The MSAD 52 Adult & Community Education program offers instructor support as well as flexible day and evening hours. It’s not too late to complete what you have started. Call 225-1010 to learn more.
