North Country Homeschool Co-op 5/20/15

Please come join us at the Wesleyan Church on Rt 3 in the village of Cadyville.

Another school year is coming to a close! Hard to believe, but it's time for co-op's annual End of Year Field Day! The church building will be opened by 10:45am for set-up & access to the kitchen. The bulk of the group planned games & activities will take place between 11a-12p. The church building will be locked at 2:00pm, however families are welcome to stay later to play next door at the park. All families who have attended co-op this year, or are interested in checking co-op out for next year, are invited to attend. Weather permitting, games & outside play time will be held at the old Cadyville Elementary School building, playground & fields on Rt 3, immediately next door to the Wesleyan Church. The church building will be open & available to the group in case of poor weather, and to use the kitchen & bathroom facilities. Families should plan to bring an item to contribute to the potluck lunch or pack a picnic lunch for their family. Please bring your favorite outside toy or idea for a game. A large parachute & rope for tug-of-war will be available. Additional game/toy ideas could include: ~ balls -- basketball, soccer, kickball, etc ~ jump ropes ~ hula hoops ~ bubble solution & wands ~ sidewalk chalk ~ pillow cases or other sacks for sack races ~ lead a group game like egg balancing, 3 legged races, etc ~ simple craft projects that could be done outdoors In the event of rain, co-op will still meet. Families will have the chance to visit & play games inside, preschool toys, and simple arts & crafts activities will be set up for the students as well. If the weather is poor, please bring your favorite board game to share! Please contact Holly Warren at if you are planning to bring an outside activity or game. RSVPs for the potluck lunch can go to Cathy Morin at . Additionally, a schedule with the 2015-2016 co-op class meeting dates, as well as a sign-up form for teaching next year, will be available on the sign-in table at this session. We would like to have the full 2015-2016 co-op schedule made up before August 1st to help families with planning their upcoming school year & give members maximum time to prep for teaching their classes. Please bring an idea (or two!) for a class -- remember, each family teaching or arranging an outside teacher 1-2 times per year is a part of your co-op membership! Looking forward to seeing everyone on the 20th!
