Thanksgiving Holidays

Remember – the CHC is closed on November 26th and 28th for Thanksgiving. Enjoy your holiday!

First Friday: Nov 7

This month’s First Friday will be Nov 7th, from 10 – 2.
We always have such a lovely time on Fridays, hanging out & becoming more a part of each other’s lives, while our kiddos get to spend much needed time with friends.
Come out & check out our *free* book swap! Presently we have stacks & stacks of CLEP, SAT, PSAT study guides, etc. Take what you want & leave what you don’t!

All First Friday events are free to members. To become a member, you can sign up when you get there! For more details, here is our website:

Please email me with further questions. :-)

CHC Opening Day: September 3

Hi CHC’ers!

This Wednesday is our opening day!

2014 Fall hours are MWF 10am-3pm

As new classes are forming, please be considerate of everyone’s need to learn the ropes, fill out forms, and find classes and teachers. It’ll be like clock work next week, for sure!

Please be sure to end your classes at least 5 minutes before the hour, so that the next teacher can set up. Thank you!

Every famliy will be filling out a membership form – just one for the year. You can pay by semester, if necessary. Be sure to sign the liability waiver on the bottom back of your form.

Family Membership is $50/year (+$10 per each enrolled student)
—So, since I have 5 children in classes where I won’t be teaching, my fees are $100 for the entire year, and the entire family gets to use/hang out in/meet up with friends/take classes/have playdates/enjoy the free clubs at the CHC.

Individual Student Membership is $30/year.

It may not be too late to sign up! Contact teachers via the CHC website (or yahoo group) to find out more about their classes.
