First Day of Classes on Friday

This Friday is the First Day of Classes!!! Are you excited?!?!?!!! We are.

A few things to remember:

* Please be careful not to pack any food with peanuts or peanut butter, as a child who attends our co-op has a severe allergy to them.
* Please bring some table activities for your kids to do if they do not have a class as we do not as a group have things for them to do (we're really not supposed to use the church's toys).
* Please sign up for a volunteer slot if you haven't yet (either to help clean a room, babysit or even to plan some fun activities for our group to do)--an email will be sent out today and there will be a sheet of paper at the co-op on Friday that you can sign up on as well.  We really need everyone's help to make our co-op a success and keep the church tidy--and we really don't want to overwork any one person. :)
* If you didn't get all of your forms or registration fee in, please be sure to bring it the first day of classes, Lisa Cassel and Kimberlee Gann will take them.




 If you weren't able to make it to registration but would like to sign up still, many of the classes have openings.  Under the Fall Class List tab, all of the classes that are available this fall are listed.  There are a lot of fun and interesting looking classes!  Each teacher lists the number of students and ages they will take for their class.

You can sign up for classes by emailing us at lincolnfridayclassesne@gmail.com, and then bring your tuition, registration fee and forms to the first class, on September 5th.  Lisa and Kimberlee will take the registration fee which covers our building rental fee ($20 per family, though if you have one child in one class the fee is reduced to $10) and forms, and you can pay your tuition to the teacher.  Please remember to check the Registration and Important Information tab, for the forms, and important info about our co-ops and policies.

If you have any questions please email us at lincolnfridayclassesne@gmail.com!

Also, Joshua Cassel (and mom), would like to say....
When: Wednesday, September 17th from 1:00-3:00
Where: Pioneers Park (by the playground)
What: A picnic for Teddy Bears (or soft and fuzzy Elephants or Cats or the like).  
We will play games (build an obstacle course for the bears & friends to do), 
make crafts (decorate placemats), and eat tiny food.  We'd like every family who comes 
to bring some tiny food to share with friends (PEANUT FREE), if you need ideas, we've 
got a cookbook with tiny ideas that we can send you a recipe or two from. 
Anything "teddy bear" sized will do.  
We hope you can come and join in the fun!
RSVP: at casselcreationsart@gmail.com or text/call Lisa at 402-770-3552 (please let me know how many are coming so I can have enough craft supplies and table service for everyone)
P.S. Costumes for bears are encouraged but not required 
(Josh loves to dress up his bear, and thought you might like to, too).

Registration Is Still Open



Hope you had a wonderful summer! It was good to see so many familiar and new faces at our registration day. If you didn't get all of your forms or registration fee in, please be sure to bring it the first day of classes, Lisa Cassel and Kimberlee Gann will take them.

 If you weren't able to make it to registration but would like to sign up still, many of the classes have openings.  Under the Fall Class List tab, all of the classes that are available this fall are listed.  There are a lot of fun and interesting looking classes!  Each teacher lists the number of students and ages they will take for their class.

A welcome email will be sent out today to all of the families that gave us their info (in the computer) at registration day, if you came to registration, but didn't get your info put into the computer (teachers this probably applies mostly to you), you will likely NOT receive that email. Please email me and I will send you a link to get your info into the spread sheet.  We use this list to contact our families if needed and send out announcements that we don't put up on the blog (we don't send too many out, but last year we used this list to send out stuff about our Valentine's day activities and other special events).

If you have any questions please email us at lincolnfridayclassesne@gmail.com!

Park Days:

There is one more park day scheduled with the Tuesday CLASS Co-op, meeting at 10:00 at Hickman Park, on August 19th.  It's been fun getting to play with our sister co-op, and we hope you can make it and join in on the fun.

Also, Lisa Cassel will be doing another "ART in the PARK" at the Sunken Gardens on Wednesday, August 20th, at 9:00 am, with art supplies (watercolors and black markers, and paper) and a mini drawing/painting lesson, learning about drawing/painting different kinds of plants and fish.  Please bring something hard to attach your paper to while you are working (and some rubber bands/tape, to keep it from flapping in the wind are helpful, too, but not required).  If you'd like to participate in this please email her at casselcreationsart@gmail.com, so she is sure to have enough materials for you and your family.  The cost will be $1 per kid, $5 max per family.

On Wednesday, August 27th, Lisa will be at the Hamann Rose Garden, located near 27th and C Streets, for another "ART in the PARK."  This time we will use chalk pastels and colored paper and have a mini drawing lesson in drawing roses.  Please bring something hard and some rubber bands to attach your paper to while you are working.  If you'd like to participate in this please email her at casselcreationsart@gmail.com, so she is sure to have enough materials for you and your family.  The cost will be $1 per kid, $5 max per family.

Summer Sports Club Dates:

August 29th, at 10:00 is the last of the summer Sports Club activities.  We will be meeting at the Gann's house to play yard games.  Feel free to bring some of your favorite yard games to share, too. Our games are pretty laid back and all abilities and ages (young and OLD--parents, that means YOU!) are welcome.  It's just about having fun around here! Please feel free to bring a picnic lunch and to play as long you want. There's no sign up or fee, and you don't have to have attended our co-op to come and play--we like newbies and making new friends!

The Class List is Up!

Registration day is August 15th at 10:30 (10:00 am for teachers), please read the information in the Registration and Important Information tab on the blog prior to coming--it explains how registration works and has updated information about our co-op's policies.  Before Registration Day, please be sure to print out your forms to turn in when you sign up!  There is a registration fee of $20 for each family which covers our building rental fee.

Under the Fall Class List tab, all of the classes that are available this fall are listed.  There are a lot of fun and interesting looking classes!  Each teacher lists the number of students and ages they will take for their class. You will pay a tuition fee for each class your kid registers for and sometimes a supply fee as well.  Each teacher picks the cost of their class based on curriculum costs, supply costs and prep time needed for their classes. These fees are paid directly to the teacher.
