Halloween and stuff

Nicole Frens
 

Hello EAGLE Families!

Look at us - we're at the halfway point for our session already!  It's been SO fun!  Even better, Co-op day falls on Halloween this year.  If your kids love Halloween, I encourage them to don their costumes for classes (eh, maybe not for dance...unless they're going to be a ballerina!). My only rule about the costumes is that they are NOT scary, yucky, dark or twisty.  If you wonder about a costume and it's acceptance at co-op, feel free to run it by me beforehand.  Also keep in mind how crowded we are in between classes, so maybe keep at home the super fancy, large and expansive angel wings, etc. We don't want tears over a crushed costume mere hours before trick-or-treating, if you do that thing.  

Also!  Please remember for this week and the following weeks - we all need to help make sure no kids are outside without adult supervision. Somebody always needs to have their eye on kids at the playground, or hanging out on the grass near the playground. 

And lastly! I have commitments now for almost half of our spring classes - yay!  Wouldn't Halloween be SO much happier if you'd already told me that you can teach a class, too (with a friend, even,  co-teaching is awesome!), so that we have a full schedule?  YES!  Let's plan on it. Let me know what you can teach (and if you'd like a co-teacher, I can find you one!), and I'll fill out our schedule. Great plan, everyone - thanks!  And think of all the time you'll have to plan out that class if you commit to it now. :)

See you tomorrow!

Nicole

Littles and books - for free!

Nicole Frens
 

Hello EAGLE Families!

I don't usually pass along stuff like this - but it's just SO exciting!  Grassroots (over by Costco), is having a free book giveaway this Sunday for kids under 6. Below is what they sent me, that I'm passing on to you. Because let's face it - we're homeschoolers - how can we pass up free BOOKS?!

If you go, I hope you find amazing treasures for your home library!


Nicole

 
We're giving away  4000 kids books!

Kids ages 6 and younger pick 50 books they like, for FREE.

Volunteer opportunity, robotics, and you! Or your kids!

Nicole Frens
 

Hello All!

As you may know, EAGLE is a STRONG supporter of FIRST Robotics, having offered many levels of robotics classes over the last few years, with students  represented on at least 5 teams this year!  Patti Poston introduced us to this amazing program that teaches kids HUGE life skills and is tons of fun - especially at competition time!

FIRST needs (LOTS of!) volunteers for all day and  half day competitions coming up at both the FLL (Lego League) and FTC (Tech Challenge-bigger robots) meets.  This is a fun way to learn about the programs up close, get in some volunteer hours (teens!), or just help support our community!

Volunteering can be anything from the desperately needed judging (easy training, many different areas of emphasis, no experience necessary...AND you get some goodies and a free lunch! YES!), to score keeping, to finding teams to make sure they line up in time for robot games or judging rooms...why, there's something for everyone!

Last year, one of our EAGLE-represented FLL teams, the VC Silver Bricks, won the Nevada State Championship and went to Worlds in Houston!  This year, I suspect that FTC team Incognito is hoping to go to Worlds, too, and they have a good shot at it!  I really think you (yes, YOU!) should come help out at a meet or 3 to see who makes it this year. :)  Plus, *I'm* the Volunteer Coordinator, and I really need you. Yes, you! :)
 
Take a look at these dates, and ponder which ones you might want to help out at - then either talk to me at co-op,  shoot me an email if you have questions, or visit THIS page for information on how to volunteer!
 
 
FTC Dates: League Meet 1 December 4th at Truckee HS time 4pm- 8pm
League Meet 2, December 11th at Carson HS time 4pm-8pm
League Meet 3, January 11th at Carlin time 12pm-5pm
League Meet 4, January 22nd TBD time 3pm-8pm
League Meet 5, February 1st at Carson HS time 12pm-5pm
League Finals, February 15th at McQueen HS time all day 8am-4:30pm
State Championship:  February 21st at Reed HS Friday 4pm-7pm and Saturday 8am-5pm

FLL Dates: Carson City Qualifier, December 7th 8am-4:30
Reno Qualifier, December 14th 8am-4:30
Championship Games,  January 25th 8am-4:30
 

Sierra Nevada Robot Showcase (FLL, FTC and FLL Jr competitions, teams from all over the west) March 21st all day 8am-5pm.

Phew! SO much goodness. Help!  :)

Thanks!

Nicole

 
 
 
 

EAGLE, this week, and next session - get excited!

Nicole Frens
 

Hello EAGLE Families!

To answer the hot question of the week for all - YES - we have co-op this week. We don't play that fall break game. :)

And to answer what is *surely* your other hot question, "Hey, Nicole, can I please, please, please teach a class next session?" The answer is also YES! Why, we'd love to have you teach a class!   Yay - thanks for asking! 

Here are some fun facts about teaching next session:

1. You will qualify for Early Registration, which typically means your kids will get in to every class their hearts desire!
2. You will also get one (non vendor) class for free!  If your child is in your class, that's what's free, but if not, something else will be.
3. Our spring session is 12 weeks long, starting mid-February (plus 1 week off for spring break)
4. You can choose what age group you'd like to teach, and what topic - it's all about what you're comfortable and passionate about!
5. If you don't have any idea about the above details, but would still be willing to teach, just let me know and we'll sort it out later.
6. You will be the happy recipient of more Nicole emails!  (ok...I'm stretching here...)

I'm hoping to have a full schedule all penciled in within the next few weeks - so NOW is a fantabulous time for you to let me know what your thoughts are on this most important topic!

Thanks everyone!

Nicole

Re: Fun stuff for all (including non-EAGLE families!) coming up!

Nicole Frens
 

Sorry everyone, I didn't get the most up to date pictures order form - the prices are slightly different (but not drastically!).    Take a look at the attached pdf form, and ponder and print THAT.

Nicole

Re: Fun stuff for all (including non-EAGLE families!) coming up!

Nicole Frens
 

Yes, please. Sign up each person for a 5 minute slot. So 2 kids = 10 minutes.

And yes, pictures will be at the church, outside (if possible!).

Nicole

Re: Fun stuff for all (including non-EAGLE families!) coming up!

Do i need to sign up for both children for pictures and is it at the church

Hello EAGLE Families!

As we creep up on our halfway mark for this session (next week!), we have lots of Super Cool stuff coming up! In chronological order, we have:

1. Our Friendraiser Park Day - tomorrow Monday the 7th from 11am-1 or so, at the park by the yellow library. Come out for an hour or more, bring your lunch, invite your friends, and the kids can play, and the adults can chat (and play!). This is a great way to learn more about how others homeschool, meet new friends, and otherwise just get out in to the beautiful sunshine and enjoy the last of the warm weather (at least for a few days, one can hope for much longer, because I'm ready for snow, snow, snow!).

2. Picture Day!  Jolene Peterson will be taking school (and/or family) pictures for us again this year on October 24th, from 11:30-2pm.  She takes AMAZING pictures for a very affordable price (there - are you people who laughed at me at orientation happy now?!), and I encourage everyone to take her up on this photographic offer!  Time slots are only 5 minutes each, so when you sign up, be sure to arrive a solid 10 minutes early so you can be ready to roll!   Click HERE to sign up for your slot/s!  I've attached the price sheet -print that off, fill it out, and bring it on picture day along with cash or check (we'll have extra copies that day, too!). Non-EAGLE families are welcome to join us for picture day!

3. And lastly, our ever-on-going Free Table!  No news here, just thought I'd say how great the selection has been each week. I don't recall needing 2 tables to display our goods week after week after week before - fun!  Be sure to bring your goods - AND take them back if they're not adopted. Please and thank you.

I think that's all I've got for you right now!  Ah, other than - if you need to contact me, please email me directly, as opposed to responding to these group messages. It really probably only takes me an extra 10 seconds at most to handle messages to me that come through our chat group - but it IS extra work for me that would be avoided by just emailing me directly. Please, and thank you again! :)

U.S. homeschooling has doubled in the last 20 years

The National Center for Education Statistics report released last week found that homeschooling in the U.S. has doubled in the last 20 years.

It’s the first federal report in a dozen years on school choice.

Public school enrollment dropped from 74 percent in 1999 to 69 percent in 2016, while the number homeschoolers has risen during the same period from 850,000 students to 1.7 million students.

The top three reasons cited by parents for homeschooling were concern over the public environment (33 percent), dissatisfaction with the government school’s academic instruction (17 percent), and a desire to provide religious education (15 percent).

Ephesians 6:4 says, “Bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.”

Hi, I’m a mom of an 8th grader and this is our 2nd year homeschooling. We are struggling with math and need help, it’s beyond me. If anyone could help out that would be great! Or any other classes?

Classroom changes...

Nicole Frens
 

Hello EAGLE Families!

Well, *like* a professional, I just whipped out a classroom map change on our website in seconds - SECONDS I tell ya!  I'm doubling my pay. (you can now teach your children the magic of multiplying with 0)

I changed around a few classrooms. So in CASE you had committed your kids' schedule to memory (or had them do it), I apologize. But the new classmap is now online, and I'll have printed maps cleverly taped to the walls this week, AND I aim to have the classroom doors posted with which classes are within. So it should all be clear as it can be.

That's really all I have to say.

I think.

See you Thursday!  It's SO exciting!!!!

Nicole

1st week, here we come!

Nicole Frens
 

Hello EAGLE Families!

Thank you to everyone who came out to our orientation meeting last week! If you weren't there, then YOU missed seeing me make a fool of myself. Your loss, and I'm not telling you what happened!  I have a few items to remind you of, and a few KEY items that I failed to mention at the meeting. So let's start with the super important stuff on the chance that you feel a case of Glazed Eyes coming on...

1. ALLERGIES!  We have one beloved family joining us this session who is airborn anaphylactic to peanuts and tree nuts, meaning, please no one partake of those items before and definitely not during co-op!  You've been emailed specifically if you're in one of the critical classrooms, but it's important for us all to do our part and eat something else on Thursdays. Please note - many of us have allergies, so let me know if there's anything we all, or even just a few select teachers should know to help keep you and your kids healthy, and for sure, out of the ER!

2. Volunteers!  Since most of us will be helping out in a class at some point, I wanted to make sure that we all know in broad strokes what to do. Communicate with the teacher to see what he/she needs. And help keep everyone focused. The class volunteer's biggest role is usually talking kindly to any student who needs to be reminded to pay attention, not be disruptive, stop making that loud percussive noise on the table, etc. Most of us don't have any training in classroom management - I for one am known to instill a LOT of enthusiastic chaos in my classes, with minimal skills on reigning it back in - so help keep things sane. And for those of you (Becky!) who maintain a calm classroom at all times (so mysterious!), just have your helpers assist any kids who need it.

3. Arrive early!  Especially first week, come a good 10 minutes early to your first class so you have time to fetch the name tags off of the wall, get a drink, and sort out which rooms you're in. But even after this week, PLAN to arrive a few minute early so the classes can start on time, and kids aren't running out to go to the bathroom during class.

That's all I had on my nifty to-do list. Chances that I'll remember something else I REALLY wanted to tell you....65%.  So I might be sending out another message soon. If not, I'll see you on Thursday!
