We have had a WONDERFUL September at the CHC, and the eClub expresses their gratitude to the community for coming out to First Friday for their Fabulous Fall Sale. With almost a dozen businesses, the opportunities to support these young entrepreneurs were simply abounding. Thank you!
As always, the CHC strives to remain supportive of the Community, in whatever way that is. We are run FOR homeschoolers, BY homeschoolers, and fund the necessary facility insurance, manager’s salary, facility rent and utility costs in various ways. One of those ways is via room rent. Your awesome teachers pay for their room rent, and you pay for their awesome classes.
Since we still do not have any classes meeting on Thursdays, we’ll not be open on Thursdays for the months of October, November and December. If you were “JUST THINKING” about starting up a Thursday class, let us know! The calendar for Wednesday and Friday is SO very full, we just need two classes to remain open on a Thursday.
In order to get a class going, reply to this email, or contact our Teacher Liaison & Scheduling Chair, Lisa Lanning: (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Thank you again for support. We’re so blessed to be able to help new homeschoolers, and be a safe haven for your students to enjoy one another in all their talents.

Fall 2015 / Spring 2016 Classes
~Creative Engineering: The best class for young engineers! Using LEGO® education sets, kids work together and with instructors to learn how to build basic machines. Alongside building windmills, Ferris wheels, cars, pneumatic machines and programming sound and motion for alligators and lions, they also experiment with physics by racing their own cars.
~Science of Minecraft: We take the physics, programming, and world science of the sandbox game Minecraft to teach kids the concepts behind electrical engineering, basic physics, earth science and interactive group planning. As well, kids gain a familiarity with computer literacy. Player-versus-Player is prohibited during classes.
~Robotics: From basic collision detection to walking, students work together to both program and construct their own robots. Classes are designed to instruct beginners in basic robotics and work upward toward competitive robotics building.
~3-D Printing: Kids explore 3-D modeling and interfaces and learn about the process of 3-D printing. After learning different building tools and troubleshooting their models, students get to print an object of their own design!
The facility is open from 10am – 3pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
Sign up for membership, and receive your Teacher ID on the first day you come to the CHC.
Our members love using the space for club meetings, curriculum swap, playdates, schooling their children, and just hanging out while classes are going on.
We have room for more classes on Thursdays – if you’ve been considering teaching — contact us!
Stay tuned. The most current calendar will be uploaded SOON!
