Whatever you’re doing, let’s do it together!
The REACH Co-op provides a venue for parent-led classes, discussion groups, and clubs. Kids (and parents!) get a chance to socialize and share the fun of learning. Older kids can especially benefit as committing to a class teaches them time management and personal responsibility.
Each co-op is independently maintained by parent volunteers, and classes will vary. If you’ve never participated in a co-op before, that’s ok! Ours is set up that we have something for each age group at each hour. However, you do not have to stay for all three class hours, you can pick and choose what suits your family. Some classes are planned out weekly by an instructor, with parents staying in the class to assist. Others are led by a rotation of parent volunteers, also with parents staying in the class to assist. If you have multiple children with you, you’ll just stay with the one that needs you most. REACH co-ops are not a drop off set up, but more of a community.
Semester registration fee: $12/student for a building fee to pay or donate to the building for their utilities and group supplies. Each class or club may have a supply fee, which covers the entire semester as well. You must first join REACH ($16 per year per family) in order to register for co-op.
Fall Classes start in September
Spring Classes start in January
