Jr. Co-op Information

Would you like to add a cherry to your own flavorful sundae-of-a-life as home educator?  Jr. Co-op may be just the thing!  It’s still summer, we’re not trying to rush things, but here’s the scoop on Jr. Co-op!
 
What is Jr. Co-op?  Jr. Co-op is a subgroup under the “umbrella” of Pilgrim’s Progress Homeschool Group (PPHSG).  It is a Christ-centered educational experience for children in Kindergarten through 8th grade and their parents to establish Christian fellowship and community with other homeschooling families.
 
How does Jr. Co-op work?  Jr. Co-op meets at St. Paul’s Church of the Nazarene, 136 Summer Street, Duxbury, Massachusetts.  We have two terms of six sessions which meet every Friday. Students select 2 classes to participate in between 1pm-3pm. We have a Fall and Spring term. Classes and fellowship times for parents allow moms (and dads!) to participate in the Cooperative making it a meaningful time for all.  
 
How may I join the Co-op?  You can join online once you have joined Pilgrims Progress by selecting Request Membership in the top right corner of this page. Then you can register for classes online. Registering your child includes completing a PPHSG membership form with payment of $25 per family; Registering for Jr. Co-op and payment of $15 per child; then sign up for classes your children are interested in.  Along with your child’s registration, we require that you, the parent, sign yourself up for at least one area of need and be sure that you have had a CORI done through St. Paul’s Church within the last three years. We have the form available upon request.
 
How may I help? Here are some ideas:
  • teach one class
  • assist in a class on a weekly basis
  • bring snack for adults
  • arrive early to help set up 
  • stay after to assist with clean-up
  • assist in the nursery so other parents can assist in the class
