Thank you for considering us to enrich your homeschooling experience. We are Enriching Christian Homeschool Organization (ECHO). ECHO offers enrichment classes for Christian homeschoolers on Fridays from October through March. We are located at a church in the northern section of Richland, WA. We are currently the longest running Christian homeschool cooperative in the Tri-Cities area. We have been encouraging families in their homeschool journey for over 30 years. We are a completely volunteer led and ran organization.
At ECHO our classes are led by volunteer teachers from within our co-op and the community. Since ECHO is a cooperative ministry, families work various jobs helping to make ECHO operate smoothly. Some of these include aiding in the classrooms to assist our teachers, setting up and tearing down each week, and completing other nessesary tasks. They are essential to the success of ECHO.
We have made a few changes for the 2022-2023 year. Some of the changes we are making this year include changes to our age groups, as well as our class schedule. Our new age groups for this year will be as follows: Preschool- Kindergarten will be ages 3-5yrs, our next age group is 6-8yrs, then 9-12yrs, and finally 13+. For this year, we are going to try a new class schedule which includes three 45 min class periods, with five-minute breaks in between, then a lunch period afterwards.
ECHO is led by a volunteer Leadership Board made up from families within our co-op. They keep busy year round ensuring ECHO runs smoothly by creating classes, coordinating teachers and our teacher aides, and creating a great environment for our ECHO students.
Our Leadership Board currently consists of 5 members.
