Fall Semester 2010

Our fall semester is right around the corner. Where has the summer gone?

Our start up picnic is Tuesday Aug 17th. All homeschoolers are invited. Those who wish to join co-op for the semester can fill out paper work and pay fees. More details to come soon.

August 20th is Faculty Lounge. This is a time for the mom's to get together. Faculty Lounge in August will be used to finalize schedules and teaching assignment for co-op. Of course there will be plenty of time to socialize and eat good food. More details to come, but please mark the date.

Co-op begins August 31st. We meet at River Cities Church, Rt. 60 in Huntington. Classes begin at 10:00 and we break for lunch at 12:40. Please plan to arrive by 9:45 for that first day.

The Fall Schedule:
We offer classes for children from nursery through high school. Babies to age 2 will be in the nursery. Potty trained 3 & 4 year olds will have their own pre-school classes most of the day, but will come out for Art and Music.

Elementary students, ages 5 to 8 will have a block of about an hour and a half for the Five in a Row classes. Five in a Row is a literature based unit study. Please check the link for more information. These students will also have a gym and a math class.

Students ages 9 & 10 will have two one hour classes: science and cooking, and one half hour class: gym.

Students 11 and older will be able to choose their classes with in the block. First hour they can choose from crafts, literature, or cooking. Then a half hour block where the choices are West Virginia history, gym, or ACT prep. The next hour the choices are literature, science or generation change (This is a Dave Ramsey personal finance class geared toward teens.)

We have one huge need for teaching assignments right now. We have no gym teacher. Any ideas or volunteers are welcome.
