Remember, co-op activities begin Friday, Sept. 12 at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish.  We begin at 1:30 with Adoration, and will start the co-op year off with a game day afterwards. 
If you're not already committed to coming for co-op, be sure to let us know if you'd like to try it out.  We'd love to meet you!  Our email address is hfchsa@blogspot.com, or text Shelly Pichler at 417-838-2730.
Being busy homeschool moms, we haven't posted in a while, but now we're busy dusting off the ol' website and updating content.  As of today, the teaching chart and calendar have been updated to reflect the current school year before us.  We're working diligently to get everything current, but please be patient with us!  As field trips and lessons are planned, these will be updated accordingly. 
Art Day has already been scheduled!  I'll try to post some pics of some of the projects we have done in the past.  In the meantime, here's a copy of the email that went out explaining all about it:
Art Day at HFCHA

 Please mark your calendar for the 5th Annual Art Day at HFCHA, with artist and art teacher Julie Straus!
When?  Friday, September 26th at Co-op (after Adoration)
Anything new this year?
Last year, some HFCHA parents asked about having our children do faith-themed art. Julie remembered our request and has planned faith-themed projects for this year.  (Thank you, Julie!)
Will we be able to order items again?
Yes, we will once again be able to order items with our children’s art on them.  If you want to check out the items that will be available for order, here is the Original Works website: www.originalworks.com (click on “Products”). We will have all the order forms available on Art Day. All orders benefit SEAS school.
Do we have to order something?
Not at all!  We do not have to order anything to participate in Art Day. The point is for the kids to have fun making art under Julie’s expert guidance.
Do we need to bring anything to Art Day?
I will send out information about anything we should bring as soon as I have the info.  Please be aware that the children may be painting or using markers, so dress them accordingly.
If you have any other questions, I’ll be happy to try to find answers.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at Art Day!

Website Updates

Many  changes have been made to the website. Several pages were added to make it easier to find information. If you can't find what you are looking for it is probably in the documents tab.

The Teaching Chart and Parent Committees tab are especially important for all parents involved in Friday co-op to review. Almost as important is the Friday co-op tab and the parent duties tab. I know we are all busy but it is really important that you look over these pages.

Right now we need more parents to volunteer for committees, so if you aren't signed up for one yet please pick one and let us know. The committees with red lettering are the ones still needing parents.

And of course please sign up on the teaching chart if you haven't. You can also note days you aren't going to be able to attend in the last column of that chart, by putting your name in red there.

Printable 2014 - 2015 Calendar

For those of you who prefer a paper calendar to a digital here is a link to a printable calendar. These are just co-op activities and does not have other apostolate activities like Mom's breakfast, retreats, etc on it.

I will add this link to the calendar tab as well.

Just FYI, this calendar has some tentative items on it, and things may change. I will always update the google calendar, which is the calendar you can see (not linked to) in the calendar tab. I may not update the calendar post or this printable calendar....just too many calendars to keep track of! I will also send out email or a blog post for things that change.
