Classical Community Coop Organizational Mtg Notes

On June 1, we had a nice, square-table gathering of about a dozen parents who were able to pool brain resources (!) and come to some consensus on a few essential topics for the new Friday Group Learning Opportunity slated for Fridays at the Old Mystic Baptist Church. Highlights include:

Name: Classical Community Coop (...or CCC, or C cubed!) - voted

Fall Fridays from September 11 to December 4 + December 11/Open or Party - Thanksgiving Friday
Spring Fridays from January 22 to April 16 + April 23/Snowday/Open and - April 2/Good Friday

Registration is through FRC
Engineering $250 8-12 afternoon 3hrs
