Co-op Session 2 classes will be held outdoors at Collins Park.
The Centrum is still closed as it undergoes flood repairs so we will meet at Collins Park right behind the Centrum. We will be utilizing several covered pavilions plus a covered play area for the Pre-K kids. We understand it won't be perfect, but it's rent-free, there's plenty of space, and it's better than nothing! Since the majority of our normal Co-op fees go toward rent, we can forgo the regular $20 per child fee and simply charge $15 materials fee per family.

We are forgoing the following fees because we are doing an outdoor school for session 2 and do not have to account for the fees of renting a building.
Normally a $20 per child fee, up to 3 children, would be added to the family materials fee giving the following totals:
- For 1 child, your registration will be $35/session
- For 2 children, your registration fee will be $55/session
- For 3 or more children your registration fee will be $75/session
About Deseret Co-op
- Deseret Co-op is normally held at the Cypress Creek Christian Community Center (aka the Centrum), which is right next to the Barbara Bush library and Collins Park. 6823 Cypresswood Drive in Spring, TX. But due to Hurricane Harvey flooding, Session 2 of Co-op will be held at Collins Park.
- There are four sessions over the school year.
- Co-op classes meet on Fridays from 10am-12pm, followed by a break for lunch and organized PE games at Collins Park.
- Each session will offer different classes geared to children from Pre-K up to Teens.
- There is a free nursery.
- Parents are expected to be present during the Co-op time and volunteer in some form or another.
A co-op is a cooperative effort led by parents, and its success or failure rests squarely on all of our shoulders. There are many ways you can help:
- Teach or co-teach a class
- Assist with managing the children of a class
- Monitor the comings and goings of children in the class
- Help in the Nursery
- Plan & lead outdoor activities for thirty minutes of PE Games
After Co-op ends for the day many of us like to take a break to enjoy our lunches together and have a chance to talk, share experiences, and get/give advice. Then one of the parents will lead a session of PE games. The games are open to any and all children who want to participate.
