Co-op Information and Updates

Hello and welcome to Parents ETC public page!

As I write this, it is the middle of May and for some of you school is coming to a close. We have summer to look forward to, but also use this time to start planning for the next year. Here at PETC, we are starting to plan for fall and year-long co-op classes. This is exciting!

Please take the time to watch the video provided as it is a replacement for our typical spring co-op information/planning meeting. There are some things I believe I didn't address that I will mention here.

The co-op teacher form will be due by July 15th. If you are unfamiliar with what is needed to provide a teacher form, open a form from the website and go through the questions. This will help you gather all of the information you need to complete a teacher form.

Co-op registration will be on August 22nd. to register for co-op, membership must be up to date before the day of co-op registration. This means new members should plan to complete membership registration a week before co-op registration in order for our membership coordinator to have time to confirm all information is completed correctly, liability waivers are done, and payment is made. In addition, all current members of PETC have between August 1st and the 15th to update their profile information, resubmit a liability waiver, and pay for their family's yearly membership. EVERYONE will be required to read the co-op rules and sign the agreement before the day of co-op registration. This will need to be completed by August 19th.

We are excited to begin meeting at the Boys and Girls Club Westside Complex in Fort Pierce. We will have 13-14 classes available, a larger mom's room, playground access, a gymnasium, outdoor space, and potentially a PE program available to us. There will be more shared about that at a later time.

Baby classes will be available to anyone teaching or assisting in a class during a specific hour. Babies will stay with moms otherwise in the big room during the duration of co-op. All classes except high school will be split into three / one-hour classes. The classes will be at 9:30, 10:30, and 11:30 am. High school will be split into two / one-and-a-half-hour classes. The first class will be from 9:00-10:30 am; the second will be from 11:00 am-12:30 pm. We can have two sets of high school classes (four classes) during co-op to accommodate students who have different high school credit needs.

Please listen to the video for additional information regarding co-op. I'm excited about the coming fall. I hope you are as well!

Thank you, Charlene Wells

Whether you're new to homeschooling, or already homeschooling but new to the Treasure Coast,  Parents ETC is a group that can help you on your journey. We serve families from Port St Lucie, Fort Pierce, Stuart, Palm City and Jensen Beach.
We are NOT a private/academic school, often referred to as Umbrella Schools.

Each family in our group is independently responsible for the education of their children, their choice of curriculum, and record keeping.

Our group provides the platform for people to exchange ideas, resources, personal experiences, and at times benefit from group rates or discounts.

Thanks to some of our members who volunteer their time, we're also able to provide various social, academic, and sporting events. These activities give our homeschool children the opportunity to come together with other children.

You must be a member to participate in our events and activities.
