Important Updates

Some of these dates will be mentioned during announcements at co-op, but since some of you are in other areas of the building, I wanted you to know about these:

March 26th - No Co-op

April 2nd - Deadline for Teacher Reimbursements (Cooking class might have some exceptions)

April 2nd and April 9th - Teachers sign up for classes they want to teach for Fall 2009 (the "sticky note" board). Start thinking now about what you might like to teach and what grade. Pretty quickly we will need a class description (a few sentences) to tell what will be covered in your class. Also think through if you will need any specific items for the student to provide: 3-ring binder, specific book, etc.

April 23rd - Class List available for Fall 2009 Classes

April 23rd - Dinner and Display Night - It will start at 6:00 with the presentations in the sanctuary, and at 6:30 we will eat dinner and look at the class displays. We decided on a "Taco Bar" for dinner, so we will ask the moms to bring the meat, soft shells, hard shells, toppings, dessert, etc. There will be a sign-up sheet at the front desk to sign up for food. Co-op will provide the paper goods, drinks, table covers, etc. The Art class and maybe the botany class will help with table decorations.

May 8th - Field Day at Fairdale - This is open to all homeschoolers. Look for e-mails on the HFHG loop.

May 14th - Registration for Fall 2009 will take place at Bullitt Lick from 9:00-11:00. This same day we will have an "End of the Year" Skating Party at Skate-o-Rama on Preston (Hillview area), from 1:00-3:00. We will be renting out the entire rink, so we get to bring our own music! The facility rental is taken care of, and there will be a $1.00 charge per skate rental. If you have your own skates it is entirely free, but if you or your child need skates it will be $1.00 cash at the door. There will be sign-ups for this event.

Sometime early September we will have the Orientation Picnic - watch e-mails for exact date and location.

We are going to have an 8-week Fall 2009 semester, with no "days off". The exact dates are as follows: Sept. 24th, Oct. 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, Nov. 5, 12.

We will still meet on Thursdays, at Bullitt Lick. The only other change is that the Leadership Committee decided to have 2 classes, then lunch and then the last 2 classes.

The times will be as follows:
9:15 - 9:25 - Open Assembly
9:30 - 10:25 - 1st Class
10:30 - 11:25 - 2nd Class
11:30 - 11:55 - Lunch
12:00 - 12:55 - 3rd Class
1:00 - 1:55 - 4th Class

Thanks so much,
