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.

B/CS Homeschool Expo Kid’s Club

ages 9 and under

Explore Space!
Investigate Insects!
Scrutinize Systems of the Human Body!
Ogle Oceans!

Two of four possible themes await your child in Kid’s Club, a structured and fun environment providing care and amusement while you are learning from seminars, visiting booths, and meeting other homeschoolers at the B/CS Homeschool Expo, June 27-28, 2014.

·       Care will be offered to children ages 9 and under

Children ages 4-9 will enjoy themed-related crafts, short educational videos or stories, and active games, such as LIFE-SIZED WAHOO!!  Children 3 and under will enjoy age-appropriate activities and care separate from the older children.

·       Cost per child: $10

Although the Expo is free to attend, Kid’s Club will be $10 per child to attend, with a family maximum of $25. A signed parental-waiver form, as well as a text-enabled cell phone, is also required for a child to participate in Kid’s Club.

In order to provide quality and consistent care, we ask that you use the preferred check-in and check-out times: between ten minutes before and after the hour. (i.e., 11:50-12:10)

·       Space/Time in Kid’s Club IS limited

Space is limited in Kid’s Club and individual children are limited to two consecutive hours of Kid’s Club each day. Reserve your child’s spot today! Email Reservation is not complete until you receive a confirmation email from this address.

*          Additional information: The Jeremy and Rachel Baker Family are organizing and staffing Kid’s Club at the B/CS Homeschool Expo 2014. Any money not spent on supplies and services related directly to Kid’s Club activities, will be used for a family missions-related trip later this summer. More information will be available at Kid’s Club check-in, if requested.
