The first working draft of the Co-op 2012-2013 schedule was at Co-op today. I will try to bring an updated one every Thursday. I am not going to post one here on the blog until later since it changes so often.
Big Co-op meeting on next year's Co-op on SUNDAY, JANUARY 8, 7:00 PM. This meeting is VERY HELPFUL to solidify things and find teachers. I would so appreciate if you would put this date on your calendar and plan to attend. (We typically have a GREAT turn-out for this meeting, and I personally find it TONS of fun. Thanks so much!!)
Even though it's early and many changes will happen, feel free to send me your thoughts on the schedule. I know each of you understands that there will always be conflicts in the schedule, so thanks for your understanding. You do have my promise to work very hard to have the final schedule represent as few conflicts as possible.
A few updates from today's handout:
Luke Middleton is going to teach a class for grades 9-12 at 9:00 on Thursdays. There will not be a pastor's class for grades 7-8.
There will be a history class offered for grades 7-8 at 9:00 (using Mystery of History Volume 3 - The Renaissance, Reformation, and Growth of Nations).
If someone would like to offer another junior high class at 9:00, let me know. (Geography?)
The Intro to French class should have stated that it is for grades 6-9. So sorry for the mistake on that. ("My bad.")
David Wheeler was not on the schedule. I believe that was an oversight. I have added him at 8:30 on Tuesdays for Pre-Calculus. I have an e-mail into him to confirm that.
There is a VERY SLIGHT chance of some 9:00 math classes on Thursday. This is very tentative - but I am working on that.
We are trying to find a Spanish 1 teacher. If there are other specific classes you would like me to try to find a teacher for, let me know. I plan to put something in the bulletin soon. (Would probably put Spanish 1 at 11:20 on Thursdays and maybe 1:00 on Tuesdays. This would mirror the French 1 classes.) (I've switched the times for French 1 and 3 on Tuesdays for now due to a request.)
We currently have NO TEACHER(S) for History 3-4, Science 1-2 and Science 3-4. Please let me know if you can teach one of those classes.
I don't know why, but it feels like our rooms are filling up quickly. I could be wrong on that, but that's the way it feels to me. So, if you are considering offering a class, I need to hear from you SOON!!
I thank God for each of you who are planning on offering a class (or classes). I thank God for the gift of this Co-op. He is the one that has graciously poured His grace on this Co-op for years now. My kids have benefited tremendously - academically, socially, spiritually - and I have benefited in so many ways myself. I can't imagine home-schooling without this Co-op! God has sustained it and blessed so many through it, and I am very grateful.
