Dayton took this photo for us, although I didn’t ask him to climb the stairs to take it! Here’s our first meeting among parents/teachers for our new MK homeschooling co-op. This is a neat development to see the parents get involved and combine the many talents and abilities of a number of the MK parents. We’ve got several classroom teachers among us which is a big help.
Beth will continue the Apologia science course with the lower elementary. Sharla B. will be teaching Logic. Denise L. will be teaching Speech and Debate. The science will run 2 hours and those upper level courses will run during those 2 hours. We’ll then have 4 age/grade levels of Literature Clubs. Lori S. and Sara M. will teach the lower elementary (grades 1-3). Denise L. and I (Alan) will teach the upper elementary (grades 4-5). Le’Ann D. will teach our junior highers (grades 5-8) and Beth will teach the high school group.
We begin this Thursday with our first ever day of classes! I’m not sure we’ll see 100% participation from our local MK families but our tentative list has 27 students included from 9 different families! Wow!
Pray for this weekly co-op session. We’re excited to see how this will develop and meet the educational needs of a number of missionary families who homeschool their children here in central Mexico.
