Enrichment families: Please select one of our two Gear Up Meetings to attend - click here to learn more!

 
Members,

To gear-up for our Enrichment Program, we will be having two Gear-Up Meetings, July 19 (9AM-12PM) and July 29 (4PM-7PM). Both will be held at our regular Enrichment location. Attending one of these events will be mandatory to participate in our program. We all value our time, especially in the summer, so you will need to register each person attending on the calendar. Make sure you are signed in first. We are aiming to have new members spend about an hour and a half and returning members spend about an hour. 

Who should attend: Families who are taking Enrichment Sessions this semester (online or onsite). Specifically, the primary adult in your family and any family member who a) will be regularly attending Enrichment sessions and b) needs a scan card (i.e. new members, returning members who need an updated picture, etc.)

At the Gear-Up Meeting, you can expect to accomplish the following:

New Members:

Attend the mandatory Board of Directors’ meeting 
Tour the facility
Get entered into our scan card system--every member of your family who will be attending enrichment sessions needs to be present to have their picture taken for scan cards. 
Attend a brief presentation from the Enrichment Team about enrichment policies and family work commitments
Make payments for your family’s sessions using cash or check. (For those who have not already sent payments or who are unable to pay by Paypal due to instructor or family preference.)
Returning Members:

Attend a brief presentation from the Enrichment Team to refresh your memory on policies and family work commitments.
Make payments for your family's sessions via cash or check if needed (For those who have not already sent payments or who are unable to pay by Paypal due to instructor or family preference.)
Update family profiles and get new family members added to our scan card system IF NEEDED. Anyone who needs a NEW scan card (including infants) will need to be present at the meeting. If your students already have a previous enrichment scan card and do not need a new picture, they do not need to attend.
A general overview of what you can expect when you arrive to a Gear-up Meeting:

You will receive a "Gear-up Passport".  The passport will outline each station you need to visit, the processes you need to complete, and where they are located. You will be encouraged to move to each station of your own choosing (find the shortest lines).
Pay attention to meeting start times. (Board meeting and enrichment meetings will start on the hour and half hour.)
Once your Gear-up Passport is full - turn in to the Passport table and you're all set for another great year of co-op!

Thank you,

Your Enrichment Team
