   DUVALL--Continuing education computer classes offered at Cedarcrest High School this last spring were so well received the schedule has been expanded to include other areas of learning, said program coordinator Bob Smallwood last week.
  
   "People really enjoy having classes in the area so they don't have to drive to Bellevue," he said.
  
   The continuing education courses are the result of a partnership formed in February between Bellevue Community College and Riverview School District. The agreement made Cedarcrest a satellite campus for BCC. Smallwood, a retired marketing executive with Bank of America, hasbeen working on the project for several months.
  
   Last spring a variety of non-credit computer courses for adults were scheduled, including Computers for the Fearful, Windows, Word for Windows, Web Graphics and Photoshop.
  
   The classes benefit those who live in the Snoqualmie Valley and Woodinville areas.
  
   In addition to the computer classes scheduled, Smallwood said course offerings this fall will include beginning and conversational German, Russian and Spanish, art and drama, growing herbs in the Pacific Northwest, making herbal wreaths, preserving food and starting a business.
  
   Classes, which will be starting around Oct. 5, are listed in the BCC Fall Quarterly catalog. Fees are posted in the catalog. More classes may be added later, said Smallwood.
  
   All classes will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays beginning at 6 p.m.

   Registration is handled by BCC. Information can be found at the school's web site at www.BCC.ctc.edu or from the school office at 425-641-2263.
