A couple of weeks ago I put out a preliminary email concerning a Spanish class for the homeschooling community. Many of you have responded, and I am so excited about the start of this class! Now that we have things more nailed down, I'm letting you all know the "official" details.
We will plan to hold our first class on October 21, 2011 beginning at 10:00 in the morning. I will give an overview of the class and lay out some goals, etc. I will also be getting a feel for how many classes are necessary, according to the different levels of understanding and previous experience. As of right now, I believe 2 classes should be sufficient, but am open to doing one more if needed.
The classes will be held at the Ashland Brethren in Christ Church (2750 Mifflin Ave. Ashland, OH 44805). For this first class, please park in the front and use the front entrance. Due to other activities being held at the church that morning, we will be meeting at the back of the sanctuary. Future classes will be held in a classroom and we will park around back and enter the church from there.
Different ones of you have asked what grade levels will be included and, after much deliberation, I believe that anyone from first grade on up will be welcome to attend. Of course, moms with younger (or older) children are welcome to hang out in the class, as well. There are also other classrooms and a library that you would be welcome to wait in if younger ones need more "wiggle room". If the weather is nice, there's lots of room outside to run and play and also a nice fenced in playground.
The cost for the class is $5 per child, with a $10 cap per family. To avoid the confusion of weekly payments, I will ask for payment at the first class. However, my desire is to be a resource to the homeschool community, not a financial burden, so please talk to me if this is not feasible for you, and I'm sure we can work something out! The classes will be held every other Friday morning for a total of 12 weeks.
Many of you have already responded to my earlier email, so thank you for your interest! For planning purposes, if you have not sent me an email stating your intent to attend this class, please do so. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Again, thanks for your interest!
