To receive more information, please call the office at 816 320-3204.  

****************************************************Also in Holt, meeting at the Christian School on 33 hwy is New Life Homeschool Fellowship (NLHF).  Classes are on Tuesdays and Thursday afternoons, for all school ages.  You can attend one day or both.  
"We are Parent led and Parent run meaning we do it all ourselves without $ compensation J.  We have focused to keep the co-op all about things that are difficult to do at home and/or just a lot more fun with others around! We also strive to keep things as “hands-on” as possible.

Over the years we have had many very creative classes and hope to be able to offer many more.  This of course always is dependent on what our parents bring us! We can’t be sure what classes will be next until we set up the session so it can be quite fun!

We are now partnering with Northern Hills Christian Academy. We will meet in their building on 33 Hwy just north of Kearney.  It’s actually a Holt address.  They have students enrolled preschool through 8th grade.   We (NLHF)  don’t “grade level” in quite the same way since we use the classical division of students. (Pre-grammar, early grammar, Middle Grammar and Rhetoric leveling) We will run our classes during NHCA’s afternoon class schedules on Tues and Thurs afternoons. They may or may not join with us in some of our classes and as an added bonus, we may be able to participate in some of their classes if there is room for nominal fees (outside of our co-op costs).  

We offer history, choir, Concert Band, science, computers, speech, drama, spanish, science lab and more.

We will be able to participate in many of their school activities such as field trips and perhaps even parties and etc!  One great big opportunity is SPORTS!  

We aim for about $50 per family per session of classes and (up to) $10 per class hour.  (note: band will have outside costs of book and of course your instrument that will be higher than this  amount)

 This is my coop, so leave me a message if you want more info.

Could you put up my Teen girls bible study group info on your site? It is in Sullivan Mo. It is called Proof.

PROOF is a bible study group for girls ages 13+ that was created to uplift our teenage girls in the local community. It is a type of Music Ministry. Each PROOF study uses a popular Christian song and builds upon the biblical foundations that the song tells.

I hope that by using Christians music with biblical based lyrics the girls will be able to associate daily life situations with the module themes and apply the foundations taught to their daily walk closer to Jesus Christ.

Classes are held EVERY OTHER MONDAY starting August 10th 2015 at 975 Highway Af, Sullivan, MO 63080. From: 4:30 - 5:45 pm.

More info at: WWW.Proof4Teens.com

Thank you so much!
