A brief overview…
We meet at Arvada Covenant Church (5555 Ward Rd, Arvada) for 12 Fridays per semester. 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. We break for lunch from 11:45-12:00

We ususally start last week in Aug. and end before Thanksgiving. We start back in mid January and go to early April. We have a Back to School family picnic, game nights for Jr/Sr High kids, Formal Dinner for Jr/Sr High kids, fieldtrips for all ages and a fantastic Gala Fundraiser with live and silent auction. We also collectBoxtops for Education, Longmont Dairy lids, Smile.amazon.com and have King Soopers reloadable cards as ongoing fundriasers to help keep our fees so low. Everyone attends all Core Classes from 9:00 – 11:45. We dress up in costumes, use props and try our best to have really fun hands on activities as our teaching tools. Lectures are minimal but in our older classes sometimes necessary. If we lecture we try to have a time of group activity/discussion. Last hour of the day is electives….students pick one class per semester. We can talk about these later as I have no idea what we will be offering. No homework for these classes….only enrichment. We offer 3 levels of Writing/Literature several different high school science classes and Spanish that requires homework, extra time and is at an additional fee. We also offer a few Dual Enrollment college classes with CCU. We are not sure what those are right now but if you have your Master’s degree and have interest in teaching a college level class let us know.

We sort our classes by birthday not grade.

We split the elementary into 6 different groups….(approx.) 5-7 yrs. mixed, 8-9 yrs. boy and girl classes and 10-11 yrs. boy and girl classes. This varies depending on ages and how we can fit them all in. :) Our elementary classes are max of 21 students.

The Jr. High (approx.) 12-14 yrs. girl and boy classes and Sr. high (approx.) 15-18 yrs. girl and boy classes.

Second, please consider how you might get involved on a weekly basis. We are a parent run program so it is imperative to get involved. What’s your gifting….teaching, helping in the classroom, “homeroom mom”, fieldtrip coordinator, administrative, creative marketing, behind the scenes, writing grants….do you prefer elementary or jr/sr high? Are you qualified to teach a duel-credit class….what are you passionate about? There are many different areas you can fit into and everyone has a gift!! :) The HSE community needs you!

IT'S A MESSY WEEK FOR EVERYONE
