As we being our second year together, we are looking forward to seeing familliar and new faces come September! This summer seems to have flown by, with vacations, planning, and lots of sunshine. Yet, we have enjoyed the chance to meet twice already to plan our format and classes for the fall.
Our first day will be September 6, 2017, and we will again meet at Pax Christi Catholic Church, 4001 Victoria Way, Lexington, Ky. Our schedule includes a few weeks off each semester to allow us to enjoy field trips or time with family, especially around the Christmas and Easter holidays. The school year ends April 25, 2018.
The format of classes has changed as a result of the energetic discussions and suggestions at our first summer meeting., with Grades PK4/K - 8 coming together for a one-room school presentation, with grade level follow-up activities for each class group. The school day begins at 9 am with mass on the first and third Wednesdays of each month (or our Virtues study on the remaining weeks). Afterward, students will have a short break and recess before the first class begins at 10:15 pm. The second class begins at 11:05 am, followed by lunch/recess from 11:50 am to 1 pm. Next, students in grades PK4/Kindergarten will gather for an hour and a half of learning in the great "one room school" fashion, with a rotation of four subjects each month. The school day ends at 2:30 pm.
Tuition has not yet been determined, but should not exceed the amount of last year's tuition ($300 for the year). Registration forms are available on the "Enrollment Forms" page (see tabs above). Depending on enrollment, tuition may even be less, so if you know friends who are thinking about participating in a Catholic homeschool enrichment program, now's the time to share our information!
Finally, our next planning meeting is tentatively scheduled for August 23 at Pax Christi. Please hold this spot on your calendar. We would like for everyone to have their applications and deposits ready by this date. Feel free to invite those friends to come along and check us out!
We're looking forward to seeing everyone soon!
