This morning's meeting was rather small and informal. We discussed what we needed to do the rest of the month.
Due to new rules, both at Good Shepherd and Harmony Grove, we will be holding Friday meetings and some activities at Harmony Grove again. CO-OPs are still at GOOD SHEPHERD.
We will be doing testing in May, we need to know what the majority of you want, ITBS or Stanford, so we can set this up, we will be doing it as inexpensive as possible I need to know the ages and type of test you prefer ASAP to set this up.
Of course Feb. events have been posted but here is what was discussed for the rest of the year:
Mar. 4 - Last day of co-ops (Two week break till next quarter)
Mar. 7 - Ruth Martin to speak on history of homeschooling and legal issues - However if I can't get a better turn out for the meeting I hate to confirm this with her.
Mar. 21 & 22 -8-noon - Group Yard Sale - Janet is checking on location, we are looking at either Ingles or the covered area in downtown Auburn, Burell Park? We could possibly incorporate a Car Wash for the Relay for Life team or Bake Sale.
Mar. 25- May 20 Co-ops resume Spring Quarter
April 4 - Since I did testing today we need a new topic_________________.
April 18th - This is Good Friday, several good field trips were discussed but will people sign up and attend. We have found that attendance and participation decreases Mar. and April for field trips and activities.
