Mix-and-Match

While the Coding Club has some specific goals, all four clubs are open to drop-ins.

  • All participants must sign up for one of the clubs for insurance and safety reasons.

It’s fine if a student isn’t in the mood for coding and prefers to game, draw, or fly drones on any given day, as long as our onsite volunteers have an accurate list of who is in the building.

Adult-in-the-Room

These clubs will depend on parents and guardians of enrolled students working together to ensure there is adult supervision in the room.

  • Adults do not need to serve as mentors — although they may if they have the expertise and inclination.

Parents and guardians may also be participants and join in the fun of gaming, enjoy the benefits of a coding coworking space, express themselves through artistic exploration, or explore the science and art of small drones.

Mutual Respect

It’s easy to get boisterous when having fun, so club participants should be mindful of the club’s focus, their fellow students (and their belongings), the shared classroom space, and the other classes in session. If in doubt, please defer to the club lead or onsite volunteer.

All participants are expected to help clean up the classrooms and common areas of the co-op at the end of the gathering. When everyone pitches in cleanup can be completed in 10 to 15 minutes.

There is also a regular class during the fourth period. This class is not a drop-in club and is only open to enrolled students.

Co-op membership is $45 per semester per family and covers the cost of rent, insurance, this website, office and cleaning supplies, etc.

There are no tuition or supplies fees to participate in the PHS Clubs.

Co-op Location

Planet Homeschool meets at 2708 33rd Ave NE, Saint Anthony Village, MN 55418. Saint Anthony Village (SAV) is a small first-ring suburb surrounded by northeast Minneapolis, Roseville, New Brighton, and Columbia Heights. There is a large parking lot, a bike rack, and Metro Transit Route 25 stops at the corner of 33rd Ave and Belden Dr.

Clubs may choose to gather outside when the weather permits, either making use of the picnic tables or lounging on the lawn.

COVID-19

Planet Homeschool’s approach to COVID-19 is cautious, science-minded, and informed by the needs of our most vulnerable members. We are making every effort to ensure that our in-person courses are safe and accessible. When we are indoors together, those efforts include vaccination, masking, and air filtration.
