February Co-Op Classes and Upcoming Events for Adventure Homeschoolers of East TN


So we have survived December and January co-op.  This has been our first full year of co-op and I have learned a couple of things.  #1- There will be no co-op in December 2016 or January 2017 there is simply too much going on.  #2= People do NOT handle location change well BUT it was something that could not be avoided so hopefully everyone will settle in for the upcoming year and our attendance numbers will build back up.  I am going to post the 2016 Adventure Homeschoolers of East TN schedule below.  This way you can go ahead and schedule your days!! Our classes are held at Cumberland Estates Rec Center which is located at 4529 Silverhill Dr. Knoxville, TN 37921. The days and location will not change but classes and class times may vary from month to month:-)

February 2nd and 4th and 24th 2016
March 1st and 3rd and 23rd 2016
April 5th and 7th and 27th 2016
May 3rd and 5th and 25th 2016

Now before I post the official class schedule I want to give you a run down of how registration is going to work from here on out (or until I can afford a website which will NOT be this year lol).

STEP ONE- Once you pick which classes you wish to attend you will send an email to (note that my email is ymail NOT gmail so do not change) telling me each student's first and last name, their age/s, and what classes they are interested in taking.  You must include all of the above information.
STEP TWO- I will email you back telling you whether or not there are spaces available.
STEP THREE- At that point you will paypal payment to for ALL Classes..if your paypal account is in a name other then your facebook/email account please let me know so that I know for sure which kids the payment needs to be applied to.  PLEASE remember to click friends and family when sending fees, if you do not then it charges us for the money you send and that is not figured into fees.  Your spot will not be held without payment. 

You may register for one month of classes at a time or you may register for the remainder of the year.  You can have a 10% discount if you wish to register for the remainder of the year for any or all classes please just note that in your email and be prepared to send appropriate payment.

PAYMENT IS WHAT RESERVES YOUR SPOT.  SIGN-UPS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED WITHOUT PAYMENT SO PLEASE BE PREPARED TO SEND PAYMENT WHEN YOU CONTACT ME ABOUT SIGNING UP.  REGISTRATION FOR FEBRUARY CLASSES WILL BE OPEN FROM JANUARY 1-25, 2016.  Hopefully this gives everyone plenty of time to pick a pay period, etc. that works best for them to pay fees:-)  Please note each class has one scholarship spot...if you are interested please contact me via email.  No one will know who gets the spot except for me and the parent of the child. 

FEBRUARY 2016 CLASS SCHEDULE (Class schedule will remain the same with the exception of Elementary Math which will alternate between K-2nd grades and 3rd-5th grades each month).  ALL CLASSES HAVE A 50% SIBLING DISCOUNT EXCEPT FOR 1st LEGO and 1st SEWING CLASSES (this covers the kits for these classes) SO EACH CHILD REGISTERED AFTER YOUR FIRST CHILD WILL BE HALF OFF THE ORIGINAL FEE.  For example Cooking is $10 so if you are registering 3 students pricing will be as follows; child 1 is $10, child 2 is $5, child 3 is $5.  Classes are for all ages unless it is specified otherwise.
