Spring 2011 Classes

The Monday Homeschool Classes Spring 2011 schedule is now complete!

When: We will begin classes on Monday May 2, and end classes on Monday June 13, with no classes on May 30.  Our Sharing Day will take place on Monday, June 20.

Where: Classes will take place at the Lutz Children’s Museum and Oak Grove Nature Center in Manchester, CT, and you must be a member of the museum to participate in classes.  For general information about the museum and the benefits of membership, go to www.lutzmuseum.org.  To see what membership does for our organization in particular, click on Our Partnership with the Lutz.

How: Both registration and payment are available online.  Please remember that it takes many hours to process registrations, and all of this work is done by one volunteer.  In order to reduce the amount of time she has to spend on paperwork and bookkeeping, please read all of the following before registering and follow these steps carefully:

1.     Clicking on the class links below will take you to detailed class descriptions.  You can add the class directly to your shopping cart from there.  Click on the “Spring 2011 Schedule and Registration” tab to return to this page and continue shopping. Once you’ve added everything to your cart, and have double-checked it for accuracy, click on “Checkout with PayPal”.

2.     On the checkout page you’ll see that there is only one space in the contact information for your child’s name.  If you try to combine more than one child into this space it requires guesswork on our part to try to determine which child is taking which class, in addition to the extra work of separating them out when processing your registration.  So please create a separate order and pay separately for each child.

3.     Our organization depends on the volunteer efforts of all our members.  Those members not teaching or serving on the committee are expected to help out by volunteering to be hallway and field monitors.  We will be sending out a separate email explaining what hallway monitoring is all about and how to sign-up for a slot.  When the nice weather finally comes, it will be especially important to have a field monitor responsible for keeping an eye on things on the back field.

The last day to register is April 20. Late registration is only possible at the discretion of the committee (committee@mhcct.org) and with instructor approval. If you are unable to make an online payment, you can still register for classes.  Contact the committee at: committee@mhcct.org and we will send you a form to fill out and mail in with your check.  Please be sure to allow enough time for us to receive your payment by the above deadline.  No payments will be accepted later than April 20. If the classes you would like to register for are full when we receive your registration form in the mail, we will return your check to you.

If you experience any problems registering, or have any questions at all, please email us at committee@mhcct.org or call Laurel at 860) 836-0671.

Monday Homeschool ClassesSpring 2011 Schedule

Classes run for 60 mins unless otherwise noted. Expect the first and last 5 mins to be a transition time as children move from one class to another. If you wish to register your child for a class but they are not within the suggested age range, please either speak with the instructor or contact the committee (committee@mhcct.org).

If a class is full, you can click on the “waitlist” link for that class to register for the waitlist. We will notify you prior to the start of the session  if your child is able to get into the class, and refund your money if they are not.
