Hi everyone. We had a GREAT meeting last night. Thanks to all of you who came.
There is an updated Co-op 2012-2013 schedule under Co-op Documents. (There is also a current 2011-2012 schedule, so make sure you click on the correct one.) As I update, I change the "draft number" (top left corner) and "date updated" (bottom left corner) so check back often for updated versions of the schedule. I will always have updated versions at Co-op. If you can't find Co-op Documents (here on the blog), just e-mail me, and I will e-mail you a copy of the schedule as an attachment.
Please look at the schedule, and let me know a few things. Not much can move at this point (maybe nothing), but let me know your conflicts. Also, let me know if you want Penny to teach American or British Lit. and if your student will take the class even if your preference is not what ends up being offered. Also, where shall we put Spanish 3?
A number of classes found their permanent home last night.
ASL 2/4 moved to 10:10. Advanced Photography moved to 10:10. (You can ONLY take Advanced Photography if you are taking her current class this year.) Creative Writing moved to 11:20. Marcie's art (if she is able to offer it) settled at 10:10 and will stay there as long as we don't mess with biology (which is now on Tuesday only). Speaking of biology - we need a co-teacher to work with Lesley. The class is going to be big, so let me know if you can help with this.
I think the times for French 1 and French 3 are settled on Tuesday. This is a conflict for a few, and I'm so sorry. I believe French 1 will stay at 11:05 and French 3 will stay at 1:00. Feel free to let me know your preference on that, but there are teacher (schedule) conflicts that make this schedule look like the one we need to stick with. (On Thursday, French 3 is at 10:10, French 1 is at 11:20 and Intro. to French is at 1:00.) (no change there)
Oh - and Sara Jane is (I think this is definite) going to offer her American History on BOTH the 11:20 AND the 1:00 hours to serve people's schedule conflicts. Wow, thanks so much, Sara Jane. (If that changes, I will let you know.) (She will have to limit the number of total students, so she does not end up with too many/too much.)
Still looking to solidify a couple of co-teaching positions for ESPECIALLY SCIENCE 3-4, Science 1-2 and History 1-2.
Elisabeth McCoy is willing to offer her geography again for Grades 7-8 at 11:20. (which really helps us with a needed junior high class that hour.) (and now there is Sara Jane's history class that can take 8th graders that hour as well.) Since Elisabeth does not know if they will be here or not (after Andy gets back), Gina Remer is willing to teach with her and take over the class if Elisabeth has to move (and we hope she STAYS)! If someone else can do this instead of Gina, then Gina would be willing to offer her Current Events class. So, let me know if you want to "co-teach" with Elisabeth and be able/willing to take over that geography class.
I think that is it for now. I'm sure you will be hearing from me (and the schedule) quite a bit over the next few weeks. Teachers, remember I need course descriptions by the end of February. And they need to include any "contracts" you want your students or parents to sign.
