We sort our classes by birthday, not by grade. We split the elementary into 6 different groups... (approx.) 5-7 yrs. boy and girl classes, 8-9 yrs. boy and girl classes, and 10-11 yrs. boy and girl classes. This varies depending on ages and how we can fit them all in. Our elementary classes are a maximum of 21 students.
The Jr. High classes are split into 2 groups (approx.) 12-14 yrs. girl and boy classes and Sr. High classes are split into 2 groups (approx.) 15-18 yrs. girl and boy classes.
We are a program that relies on parent volunteers. That being said, we understand that everyone has seasons of life in which serving outside of their current commitments is not possible. Volunteering to help in some way is not a condition of participation in the program. There are also ways you can volunteer without having to commit to being at the program every Friday. Those opportunities include administrative work, marketing, prepping class supplies, writing grants, scheduling fieldtrips, and special projects. If you can commit to helping every week there are many ways to contribute. There are a myriad of different areas you can fit into, and everyone has a gift!! The HSE community needs you!!
