2018 Fall Enrichment Class Listing

You may print class registration forms from the Members Only section of this website or from the weekly EAGLE email from Bevin. 

Please do not fill out class selections before Class Registration Day. You cannot be sure there will be space to get your child into the class you want until then.

CHANGES to the Printable Version:

*Varsity Volleyball will practice on Mondays and Tuesdays, not Thursdays. The ages should be for 10th-12th grade girls (not 9th).

*Third period 9th-12th Choir description should read, "Description: This will be a fun class of learning to sing as a group. We will be covering breathing warm-ups, singing techniques, and how to listen to one another. We will also be performing 1 of the 2 songs we will be learning at Fall Creation Night!"

*Guitar Class Updates:

Andy Dixon has very generously decided to lower his class rate to $150 for guitar lessons.  About payment: Because Mr. Dixon is charging as a professional and not only to meet his expenses, anyone signing up for his class will be paying him directly (like we've done for other outside classes in the past). He has, however, graciously agreed to accept postdated check for payment, much as we do for our general class payments, if needed. Please be prepared to pay him separately when you sign up.

 

Registration forms and class rules to sign will also be provided at signups. 

 

Also, be prepared to pay for classes on sign-up day, August 28. You may pay in full or submit three post-dated checks. In addition to the fees charged for each class, there will also be a $10-per-student church fee with a $30 limit per family. This helps us to repay Farmington Baptist for a small part of what they graciously allow us to use throughout the year.

Fall classes begin Tuesday, September 11 and will run 10 consecutive weeks and will end on Tuesday, November 13.

First Period is 12:00-1:00

Second Period is 1:00-2:00

Third Period is 2:00-3:00

Class signup day is Tuesday, August 28 @ 
Farmington Baptist Church.

TEACHERS ONLY sign up at 
9:30 am. This does not include assistants. It is only for the main teacher of the class. We ask that teachers please stay through the second hour of signups in case there are any questions about your class making or your class size.

Everyone else signs up at 
10:30 am. Please have a 1st, 2nd (and maybe even 3rd choice) in mind for each student for each period. Classes do fill up and you will want another option in case your 1st choice isn’t available.

Please print out a copy of the class descriptions for yourself if you are able (see attached). You can use this as your guide for keeping up with what’s available as well as your student’s choices.  I have used mine to write in the margin beside the classes my child’s name & whether that class is his 1st, 2nd, or 3rd choice. There will be limited copies available at class signup but they will be limited. 

 

Students are NOT required to come to signups, but for your convenience there will be adult-supervised childcare during both the teacher signup as well as the second hour signup. Age ranges are divided into nursery (6 weeks-2y/o), Prek-K (3-5 y/o including kindergarteners), and 1st grade and up (in the gym). We do ask that once teacher signups are finished that a few adults would check on each age group to make sure the adult in the room has enough help during the second signup hour and if needed, to stay where needed. If you are not staying in a room to help, please pick your child up so there is room for those coming second hour. Also, if your teenager would like to help in any of the rooms listed, please let me know.

Please remember that there is to be NO food or drink in the church (so please leave your coffee in the car. 😊)

We will not be doing membership registration the day of class signups. Please see Bevin’s info about membership deadline in the general announcement email.

I look forward to seeing you all on signup day! – Amy Claunch claunchfamily@gmail.com
