We are excited to announce the addition of over another 10 new families joining us for the Spring 2014 semester. But with such growth comes responsibility. And we, as the Leadership Team, believe that Discovery Days has reached its maximum capacity for the building that God has given us. Therefore, all future families wanting to join Discovery Days, will have to be placed on a waiting list. Only when families leave the co-op, and therefore make room for others, will they be able to join. But that also means if you leave for a semester, you will then be on that waiting list. We are sorry that this may at times exclude some, at least for a period of time, but we hope that everyone understands that we are limited by our surroundings. Plus, we wish to maintain a sense of community within our co-op.
We want to make Discovery Days the best co-op that it can be. Therefore, we ask that you prayerfully consider your decision before registering for Spring 2014. We will be implementing a few modifications in your responsibilities:
•On top of your teacher/assistant responsibilities, all parents will be asked to help clean up after one Discovery Days per semester. You will be notified to which week you have been assigned as your responsibility to help on the cleanup crew. If that week does not work for you, it is your responsibility to swap weeks with someone else for their week.
•If you miss three or more Discovery Days in a semester, you jeopardize your position in the co-op. Therefore, if you know in advance that you are going to miss more than two sessions, we ask that you don’t register. There may be other families who may benefit from the opportunity.
•After the beginning of first session, all entrance to the building should be through the Fellowship Hall. But these should be made on the south side of the building [NEW], just to the left of the first overhang. There will be a door monitor to let you in and direct you to the nametags. Again, nametags should be worn at all times in the building.
Registration is only a week away for returning teachers. Be looking for the reminders for when it is your time to register. To check out the class line-up goto Classes.
We will be accepting “Participants” for the Spring semester until November 22, 2013. After that, anyone interested in Discovery Days will have to be placed on the Waiting List for next Fall.
Registration begins the first week in December for teachers. See the list of dates for details.
To join Discovery Days for Spring 2014, we need all new interested families to fill out a participation form. This is how we make sure we have enough space in our classes before registration begins. The deadline for new participants is November 22, 2013.
Once you fill out a form, you will be added to the Discovery Days community in Big Tent. We will then send you reminders for registration as it approaches.
Space, if available, is based on the number of classes and the space in those classes. If we can’t find room for you this semester, consider teaching a class next semester. Teachers always have first pick of classes for their kids.
Upon your arrival at Highland Baptist Church, you will want to make your way to the Fellowship Hall. You will want to park in the rear of the building. Upon entering the Fellowship Hall, there will be 4 stations that you need to transverse through. When you enter the door, you will receive a name card with the 4 stations labeled. If you have already paid your final fees, you will begin at station number 2. This will be noted on your card. From there you should go to each station before leaving the Fellowship Hall. If you are a teacher dropping off lesson plans, you will have an additional stop at the Substitute Coordinators Table. Any students that can be independent of you as you focus on the different stations, should make their way to station 4 as you enter the Fellowship Hall. There you will be rejoined for a family picture before going on to the sanctuary.
Station #1 – Pay final balance of the fees for fall semester
Station #2 – Fill out and submit Liability Release form
Station #3 – Receive Name Tags for the entire family
Station #4 – Put on nametags for a family picture by Melissa Shuford
Anyone who has yet to pay the balance of their fees, is encouraged to come to early arrival. We are doing everything possible to get people through the lines in a timely manner, but extra time may be required to get everyone through by 10 AM. To help in the proficiency of our efforts, you could bring your own map and your liability forms already filled out. This would be a great help.

With the addition of almost 30 families, one might see how some information might need to be shared. And for even the experienced crew, there will be a lot of changes in the fall due to our location change. Therefore, whether a refresher or new information, we wanted to direct your attention to the co-op responsibilities section as well as the position descriptions. Many new position have had to be added to handle the new logistics of our new building and layout.
