Winter Session Coming Soon!

We hope that everyone had a wonderful Christ-filled Christmas with loved ones.  We are looking forward to the start of our winter session which is rapidly approaching.  That session will run from January 10, 2013 through February 28, 2013.  We will be staying with our morning schedule that we have followed for a couple of years now, Thursday mornings from 9:00-12:30, Grace Community Church in Overbrook.  Our class divisions this semester will be 4 classes:   Preschool- 1st Grade/   2nd-3rd Grade/  4th-5th Grade/
6th & Up.  With the students from last semester that are returning that gives us appoximately 7/ 6/ 8/ 10 for numbers of students in those respective classes, a total of 31 children.  We do expect several new students however, so those numbers will change some. We will be posting the class schedule soon (most likely tomorrow), so check back to see what we are offering this session.  We will also post information about our pre-enrollment.  For now if you have any questions, feel free to contact us at steppingstonescoop@yahoo.com.

Gone to the Dogs

  Today our group went to the dogs, literally!  This was our second year of helping out with the Capital City Circuit Dog show at the Kansas Expocentre.  Our duties are clean up duty & selling programs.  It's dirty job, but someone's got to do it!
Some of the cutest pooper scoopers around!
    To tell you the truth, at the beginning of the day, everyone is squeemish about the clean up, but by the end of the day, just getting to be there and watch these amazing dogs & pet some, plus just being with our buddies, loosens everyone up and it becomes a ton of FUN! 
it's not all hard work:)
  After a hard day's work, we're all ready to go back again next year!
part our great crew:)

Drama!

Working on getting Kevin Stone (pastor, playwrite, and radio personality) to teach a drama class for us this fall. If you are planning on attending our coop this fall and would be interested, please let us know! He does a fantastic job! The pic is from the performance of Pilgrim's Progress we did with him last. He has the kids help build the set, do the costumes, as well as learn their lines. A wonderful opportunity!

What are we doing?

What are we doing for the next year? I'm glad you asked:) We're breaking it up into 8 week sessions (Sept-Oct., Jan-Feb., & Mar-Apr.)  The 1st session is public speaking/Spanish/genealogy for the older kids (5th & up), genealogy/pub. speaking/art for 3 & 4th; What's in the Bible/cooking/Mr. Popper's Penguins for 2nd; & What's in the Bible/music for K-1st. of course depending on how many of each level we have determines whether or not we have to tweak the age levels (we don't generally want more than 15 in a class).  The 3rd 8 weeks we'll brake from our norm and have speakers (like meteorologist Matt Miller, and the Topeka Zoo), special craft projects, and field trips.  Our enrollment day is August 9th, at 10am at Grace Community Church in Overbrook - come see what we're all about!
