General Co-op Information
About the Board
The EAGLE Co-op board consists of volunteer moms who attend Reno Christian Fellowship and who are dedicated to promoting friendship and knowledge in the homeschool community. We are continually preparing for the next session and need your input and suggestions about classes that would interest your children. Please speak to Maureen Ford with your ideas, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need to contact any other board members, see the Contact Page.
How does it work?
This is a co-op. That means everyone works together to make the program work. We need parents helping in every classroom. On the Thursday before classes begin, we will meet at Chuck E. Cheese for volunteer sign-up and class payments. Volunteer sign-ups are during this time on a first come basis, and most teachers appreciate having the same helper each week. We also need set-up and clean-up volunteers if helping before and after classes works better for your schedule. In order to be fair, volunteer hours are based on number of students and number of classes in which your family is enrolled.
We are a non-profit organization and only charge for the actual cost of each class. There is a per semester family fee of $20.00 for two or more children and $10.00 for one child enrolled in EAGLE Co-op. This money is used for operating the co-op. Our classes are taught by volunteer parents and contracted vendors. The vendor teachers graciously reduce their standard rates for us, and we appreciate their skills and knowledge.
About Our Facilities
We meet at Reno Christian Fellowship, 1700 W. Zolezzi Lane in southwest Reno, on Thursday afternoons. (Click here for a map from Google, with directions from any address.) For easy access to the EAGLE Home School Co-op classes, please park in the rear, left parking lot (southwest corner of the church). Please use the rear doors.
Reno Christian Fellowship (RCF) has graciously allowed us to use their facility for FREE! Out of respect to RCF, we ask that you keep a watchful eye out for your children before and after classes. For safety and liability reasons, children are not allowed to be unsupervised in any portion of the church, lawn area, parking lot or playground.
The South playground is for supervised Co-op use. The North playground is to be used only by the RCF Pre-School. RCF has a concurrent Pre-School and counseling sessions during Co-op classes. The designated RCF Pre-School hallway is "off-limits" to Co-op children due to Washoe County immunization regulations.
When does the co-op meet?
The Eagle Co-op meets on Thursdays between 12:15pm and 3:10pm. The day's schedule is listed below. We meet for two sessions per year in the fall from September through December, and in the spring from February through May.
As parents, we are aware of our children's social and academic abilities. The age and grade limits posted give you an idea of the level the class will be geared for. If you have a child who is particularly gifted in a subject, you can request a special placement- which may be granted if the class is not full and at the discretion of the teacher.
By enrolling your child(ren) in the EAGLE Home School Co-op, you agree to the Hold Harmless Agreement.
