Registration Process

Current Members:  Your $135.00 Annual Membership Dues are due before you can register! 

Pay using PayPal by clicking "Balance" on the top right or by check/cash.

Please read and agree to the Attendance Policy before registering.

  • New Members, you must first register online at www.firstclasskitsap.org by “Requesting Membership” and follow instruction you receive in the custom email response.  Please read over the Membership Handbook before signing the membership agreement.  This is located on the website under Membership (on the top horizontal menu bar): Handbook.  Also, do this at least a day or two in advance of the ‘New Member’ registration date, so leaders have time to approve your request and you have time to respond to the introduction email. Please know that space is limited at co-op and we are not always able to admit every family. Once we received your introduction letter, your membership will be approved you will be able to access the member area of the website. Also, please note that you must pay your $120 annual membership dues at this time. Dues must be paid before you will be allowed to register for classes.  
  • ALL members:  To register please click on  the upper tab, 'Registration' and then ‘Classes & Registration’ link to see a matrix of classes.  If you click on a class you can see description, fees, teacher names, supply lists, etc about the class.
  • Pay close attention to age/grade restrictions on classes as well as any prerequisites.  Please choose age/grade appropriate classes.  You must register your child for classes in their age/grade range.  If you have a desire to register outside those guidelines you will need to wait until after registration has been completed for all members and new members.  Then, if there is still room in your desired class, you need to come to leadership (NOT the teacher) to request approval.  The leadership team will communicate with the teacher to see if it is possible.
  • When your registration date opens, you need to log in using your user name and password, then you will go to the matrix as stated above to register.  Click on the class you desire and then you should see your children’s names with check boxes next to them.  If you do not see your child's name, you need to make sure  you added them to your profile (go to 'edit your profile'). You will choose the child you want registered in that class and then click ‘register’ to put that child(ren) into the class.  At any time that you want to review what classes you have placed your children in, click on ‘view class summary’ in the upper right of the matrix of classes.

  • If you choose a class, and the system tells you the class is full, then please choose another class for that child.  If no age appropriate classes are available, you will need to place that child in the study hall for that period (if you plan to attend that period).  Later, if an opening become available in a class, those in study hall will be notified, and given the spot in the class on a first to respond to notification basis. If you register your child in a class outside their age range before approval, they will be transferred to study hall and you risk alternate classes filing up.
  • Please register each child that you plan to bring to co-op. We need to account for everyone that will be in the church on Thursdays, including those in the nursery.  If a child is on site, they must be registered in a class, even if it is Study Hall.

  • Jobs matrix:  everyone is asked to please also go to the 2017-18 JOBS Sign Up matrix, found just below the 2017-18 Classes Matrix and choose your preferred positions to help at Thursday school. This year you can't tell how many job openings there are, so if you are able to select your name then the job is open. If you are unable to select that particular job, it is full and select your next choice. I will try to close the jobs that are full.
  • Jobs: If you are teaching two classes, choose 1 job; if you are teaching 1 class, choose a TA job and 1 job or 2 jobs; if you are a Co-Teacher choose 1-2 TA positions and 2 jobs; if you are teaching no classes choose 2 TA positions and 1-2 jobs or 1 TA position and 2-3 jobs. We want to make sure you have a block off to get to know and mingle with other parents. If you are not here all four blocks, please make sure that the other blocks you have a job or a TA position-but leave one block free to visit the parent room. Ultimately, leadership will place everyone where they are most needed, but we love to know your requests. In some cases, if not all jobs are filled you will be assigned jobs even if that is your only free block off. Classes that are in First Block or Fourth Block will set up and tear down their own class room with the help of their TA. Remember your older children can always help with clean up and tear down!
  • Background checks need to be completed for BOTH parents. We will also require a copy of both parents driver’s licenses, military ID, or another form of state/ Federal issued ID’s.  Current members, no need to resubmit we will use your previous submissions.  Please print and send in your background check forms either to our office or via mail.
