Would you like to visit?
Fireside's annual VISITATION DAY is coming up! If you are interested in Fireside and might be considering it for next year, we encourage you to register for this event.
YOU MUST REGISTER IN ORDER TO ATTEND!
On Tuesday, March 15th, you are invited to visit for either a morning or afternoon session, with a combined informational meeting during the lunch hour with co-op director and assistant director. Here you will receive our list of classes for next year.
Visitation Day allows you to see Fireside in action, and visit various classes during your stay. You will also have the opportunity to talk with other Fireside parents, teachers, and students. Your children can observe (and in some classes, participate) subjects that interest them, and even have lunch & recess with current students if they choose (younger children should remain with a parent throughout the visit, and can attend the meeting if that is more convenient).
TO REGISTER FOR VISITATION DAY ON MARCH 15TH, PLEASE EMAIL WITH YOUR CHOICE OF SESSON (MORNING OR AFTERNOON), AND NUMBER ATTENDING.
You will receive a confirmation and a few updates as the time gets closer.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks so much!
For families that are currently registered for classes, please take a few moments and register on this site for access to the "members only" pages (Please note that you may ONLY request membership on the website after you've become a registered member for classes). On the sidebar, you will see "request membership" listed. You will need to fill out some information that will be sent to the website administration (Laurel Wenson, assistant director); you will then receive an email confirming your membership on this site. You will then need to create a family login and password that only you will know. The "members only" pages will include an online directory for members only, teacher pages for students who might miss a class assignment, optional family pages (you decide!), and much more. All memberships must be approved by the site adminstrator, so it will be a totally secure environment for registered families only. Thanks for being a part of the family!
Want to take a closer look? -- Take a "Virtual Tour" of the building that we call "home" each Tuesday. Look for the link on the left sidebar!
