Q:

What does a typical day look like at Friday School?

A:

Friday School starts with chapel at 8:30 am. Chapel starts with an On-Time Drawing (for those who have arrived by 8:25 am. This includes kids, teens, and parents. There is a time of worship and a message shared for about 20 minutes. It is concluded with announcements at about 9:00 am.

Friday School then have three one-hour classes. Our classes are parent-led, so they may change from session to session. One parent of each family is asked to help (either teach, assist, or be a hall monitor) in two of the three blocks of Friday School. In the 3rd "off" block the parent can connect in our parent break room with others while enjoying snacks, coffee, and tea. Kids will have an opportunity to eat a snack during B block. The snack will be provided by the child's family.

Q:

What is the difference between co-op membership and friday school membership?

A:

Co-op membership gives you the opportunity to be involved in the Sonrise Community without attending Friday School. This includes field-trips organized by member families, park dates, teen hangout times, mom connections, and family get-to-gethers. 

Friday School membership includes the benefits of Co-op membership, but also has the added bonus of Friday School in the fall and spring. There tend to be events such as Open House, hang out times right after Friday School, etc. where the Friday School families have more opportunity to interact.
