If you have a question not listed below, in our Member Handbook or in About FridayCHAT, please email Sara Davila: sarajoturtle@hotmail.com 

How much does the co-op cost per session?
There is a $25 registration fee per family, and the classes are $5-$10 a
piece.  There is also a yearly fee of $20 to be a member of CHEMinistry. So the price depends on your family size, and how many classes you want to attend.  We are also non-profit now and are joined with CHEMinistry, so their yearly membership of $20 is also required.

How long is a session?
Fall and Winter sessions are 10 weeks.  Spring is 7-8 weeks usually but this semester is cancelled .

Who can join the co-op?
Anyone who homeschools can join the co-op, but our spots do fill up
fast.  The best way to ensure a spot is to teach a class.

How do I join the co-op?
There is information on THIS page that explains how to join the co-op

When and where do you meet?
We meet at Auburn United Methodist Church, on Fridays.  Classes start at 9:30 and go until 1:10 in the fall and winter.  The spring session doesn't include lunch or third hour and ends at 11:25.

Who teaches the classes?
Parents of the children who attend co-op are the teachers.

What classes do you offer? 
The classes can be viewed HERE.  The new classes will go up as soon as there is a
finalized schedule for the upcoming semester.

What else does the co-op offer?
We offer the opportunity to get to know and spend time with other homeschoolers, attend educational field trips and have fun at park days over the summer.

What does a normal day look like at co-op?
First hr 9:30-10:25
Second hr 10:30-11:25
Lunch 11:30-12:15
Third hr 12:15-1:10

This is a typical fall and winter semester.  Spring doesn't have a
lunch or third hr.

What if I don’t want to teach this session?
You don't have to teach to participate in the co-op, however this is something that we strongly encourage.  You will have to sign up for a service job, however, because, being a co-op, everyone is involved in helping FridayCHAT run smoothly.

My child is in 2nd grade, but is advanced in reading. Can I put him in a reading class listed as 3rd grade? 

Yes.  The classes are listed by grade as a guideline to what level the classes are being taught.  Parent have the choice to put their child in whatever class they feel they are academically ready for.  

Am I required to help?

Yes. As a co-op, we rely on all families to help in some way. To see more on when and how much help is required, see the Member Handbook.

Do I have to attend all day? 

No! You can attend any of the hours that you choose.

Can  I enroll my child in a class that is listed as a continuation from a previous semester?

In most cases, yes!  There are occasional classes that will require the student to get approval from the teacher, but these cases will be noted in the course description for the class.
