First Class Big Lake/Houston is a local, Christian, homeschool co-op in Alaska. We call ourselves the Hupomone Homeschoolers. Hupomone is a Greek word meaning "steadfast".
Our VISION is to connect the local homeschool community through events, co-op classes, devotions, and other opportunities!
We offer a great program called Friday School. Our sessions run for 10 weeks in the Fall and for 10 weeks in the Winter/Spring. We meet at Faith Bible Fellowship, 14159 W. Hollywood Road, Big Lake, AK. Our Fridays begin at 9:30 am with 2 classes before lunch/recess, then chapel & study, & 2 classes in the afternoon. Classes are taught primariy by parents of the co-op. We offer classes (or care) for all ages, "Diapers to Diplomas!"
One of the best parts of Friday School is the Teacher Resource Room. Each parent is required to help in three of the four class blocks. During your block "off" you get to enjoy fellowship with other like-minded moms. This is where friendships are kindled, encouragement is rendered and a time of refreshment occurs.
To attend Friday School:
1. You must become a member of FCHM at a cost of $50.00 per year
2. You must become a member of Hupomone Homeschoolers at a cost of $25.00 per year
3. Register for classes January 12-24, 2013
We hope you'll join us at First Class, make some new friends and get involved!
Our mission statement:
Our mission is to glorify God as we endeavor to encourage and support families as we navigate the homeschool years together. We believe that as the body of Christ, each having different gifts, we can be a light, sharing skills, resources, and the Word of God, which God has so graciously entrusted to us. To remain focused on the on the main goal: To share the love of Christ and teach with God's inspired, infallible Word being preeminent.
