Elementary Information

Preschool and Kindergarten classes are self-contained and are dismissed at 12:25 p.m. Elementary students in grades 1-6 rotate through three one-hour classes. They will complete three classes in the fall and three different classes in the spring. These classes vary from year to year* but generally consist of supplemental classes such as: art, music, sign language, creative writing, PE, geography, science, etc. Classes for grades 1-6 end at 12:30. All elementary students must be picked up from their last class by their parents.

 *Exact classes to be offered are usually determined and announced in late spring/early summer. 

 

 Jr./Sr. High Information

Our junior high and senior high program includes grades 7-12. Students rotate through three one-hour classes of their choice. Most junior/senior high classes offered at CHC are supplemental classes, not core classes. Classes vary from year to year and are typically determined and announced in late spring/early summer. Some examples of classes offered are: biology, chemistry, drawing and painting, auto mechanics, media, creative writing, sign language, student leadership, guitar, history, cooking, discipleship, introduction to architectural graphics, boys' PE, girls' PE, drama, newsletter/yearbook, orchestra, etc. 

 

 

Parent Jobs 

Application to the co-op requires that one parent from each family serve in some capacity in the functioning of the co-op. We have a limited number of "at home" jobs. Your job in the co-op may require you to be onsite on some Friday mornings. 


 

Attendance 

Regular attendance is required. More than three absences without a good excuse may be cause for dismissal from the co-op.  If you have circumstances that will require absence for an extended period, please notify the Leadership team. 

 

 

Dress Code

CHC students are expected to dress modestly and in a non-offensive manner. 

 

 

Communication

Communication in the co-op is essential. Each family has a "mailbox" folder located in the Parent Room. These file folders are kept in a plastic file box and sorted alphabetically. Mailboxes need to be checked weekly. They will contain your monthly financial statements as well as other info that is not sent via email.   

 

 

Forms

All students must have the following forms on file: 

  • Medical Release, one per student
  • Emergency Authorization, one per family
  • Code of Conduct, one per student and family 

 

Classroom Etiquette 

  • It is essential that students arrive on time to each class. If students arrive late and miss the opening ceremony, parents are to escort their children to class. 
  • In the changing of classes, students are to go quietly and directly to their next assigned classroom.  
  • Students must be respectful of others at all times. Abusive or hurtful language or behaviors will not be tolerated. Any ongoing behavioral problems could warrant a temporary or permanent suspension from the co-op.
  • Students should address teachers and other adults as Mr., Mrs., or Miss along with their first or last names. 

 

Care of Facility 

We are very thankful to Crosswoods Baptist Church for the use of their facility.  We want to show our appreciation by respecting their property:

  • If you see trash, pick it up and throw it away. 
  • If you make a mess, clean it up.
  • Parents are responsible for their children's messes.
  • No food or beverage will be allowed in the sanctuary.
  • Do not ask to use the church phones.
  • Do not use church supplies or equipment without authorization.
  • Please stay in areas designated for our use.

 

Grounds for Suspension from CHC 

Adherence to group policies is a requirement for membership in the group. Failure to abide by group policies and procedures may be grounds for suspension or expulsion from the group, at the discretion of the Leadership Team. Grounds for suspension or expulsion may include, but are not limited to the following: failure to pay tuition and fees on time, chronic absenteeism, parental refusal to participate in volunteer roles, ongoing behavioral problems, other situations which are deemed to impair the general well-being of the group, or failure to adhere to the Code of Conduct.
