Even though Governor Ducey’s “Stay At Home” executive order for Arizona has expired, the RISE Summer Semester is still cancelled as the Rio Salado Surprise building will continue to be closed until further notice. At this time we are planning to do some online classes via the Zoom platform and RISE members will be notified regarding dates and times and the classes to be offered.
We still encourage you to explore the online Universal Class option that is available – click the tab on the RISE home page.

Important Information re: Cancellations and Changes
When we have to cancel or change a class date, it is very difficult to get the message to everyone. If you are registered for a class that cancels, we email everyone in the class first and call anyone who doesn’t have an email listed. If the class cancels at the last minute, we call everyone who has registered for that class. Then we send an email blast about the cancelled class to those who have email. We will then note it on the home page of the RISE website, www.riselearning.org. For those who don’t have email or the internet, we print a sign and post it on the RISE bulletin board and on the windows by the classrooms. That is another reason it is so important to register for classes whenever possible.
Remember to check your name off the attendance sheet at the door or
add your name if you are not pre-registered. We just need a headcount!
ALWAYS remember to wear your badge when coming to classes or in the building.
Did you lose your badge? Your first badge replacement will be free of charge,
HOWEVER, the next replacements will cost you $5.00 (cash only) each.
Do you know someone you think would make a great presenter for RISE? Do you have an idea for a subject that we haven’t touched on yet? We would LOVE to hear from you!
