2014 Not Back to School Orientation & Potluck

 Friday, September 5, 2014

11am - 3pm

It's almost that time again! Woo Hoo! Time for the “Not Back to School” Orientation and Potluck!!

First, join us at the Planet Homeschool location: 

Faith United
2708 33rd Ave NE
St Anthony MN

We will meet for a short orientation of the church space from 11-11:30. The orientation will not only cover the space we use but include the duties of parent monitors, the set up and take down volunteers' jobs, PHS' storage area, location of cleaning supplies, and review of the co-op guidelines. Attendance is encouraged for all PHS youth and parents, (newbies and old hats,too!) in order for our co-op to run smoothly !

After the orientation, let's head over to: 

**Waite Park,
1810 34th Ave. NE 
Minneapolis, MN

**Please note that this is a different than usual park location.

Bring a dish to share, something to drink, plates and utensils for your family. We will share food, get to know each other, catch up, and just plain have fun!!

Planet Homeschool, a secular coop, is a vibrant and welcoming learning community for homeschooling families with students ages 10 through high school in the Twin Cities, Minnesota metro. We offer a wide selection of courses led by teachers who are passionate about their craft and actively engaged in their field.  We attract an exceptional group of lively, intellectually curious students who truly enjoy being here.  And we involve an array of talented and supportive parents whose good ideas have helped build our co-op from its start in 2000.

Our learning environment is characterized by small class sizes, a comfortable and informal atmosphere, and close relationships between instructors, students and parents. Students have a common gathering space for study and socializing, and ample free time to get to know one another. Parents are welcome, but not required to stay for the day, and are expected to share in the administrative and supervisory aspects of the co-op.
