Primary Academic Co-op Day
Primary Academic Co-op Day
PAC Day is a homeschool parent-led co-op for Pre-K - 7th grade students
Back to Top

 

PAC Day Purpose:
In accordance with the HCCH mission, PAC Day has been established for HCCH member families to help meet an academic and elective need for their student(s).  Classes are offered in some supplemental core subjects with electives available as interest and available parent-teachers allow.  Due to limitations with time, facilities, and instructors, it is the purpose of PAC Day to offer academic classes only for Pre-K - 7th grade students, with childcare available for newborn through age 2 children of participating parents.

With the understanding that PAC Day is not meant to replace your homeschool studies, but to enhance them, PAC Day cannot meet the total academic needs of every student.

PAC Day Vision for Education:
Our desire is to offer your student an enjoyable classroom environment, and the opportunity to experience learning alongside their peers from a teacher other than their own parent.

Our Limitations:
Due to our limitation of time, space, and staff, PAC Day is unable to provide classes for students with special academic, emotional or physical needs.  Allowances can be made to this rule only with prior request and approval from the PAC Day Board.  Each student and their family must agree to abide by the PAC Day rules if they will participate in PAC Day classes.

PAC Day Organization
PAC Day is organized by an all-women board who serve in a voluntary capacity with new board members appointed as the need arises.  The PAC Day Board will set the class schedule, calendar, secure facility and approve all parent-teachers.  Board members will also help resolve conflicts between parent-teachers, students, parents and others.

The PAC Day Board is a primary committee of HCCH as described in Article V, Section 1 of the HCCH By-laws.

 

To join PAC Day, you must become an HCCH member. For further information, go to our PAC Day Information page where you can read through our Handbook and FAQs. If you have further questions, contact us at pacday@myhcch.com

Understanding that SAC Day is not meant to replace your homeschool studies, but to enhance them, SAC Day cannot meet the total academic needs of every student.  Tutors provide grade only -- transcript preparation remains responsibility of the parent.

SAC Day Vision for Education:
Our desire is to help your student develop those qualities needed for independent study that will serve him or her well in the college or work environment.

Our Limitations:
Due to our limitation of time, space, and staff, SAC Day is unable to provide classes for students with special academic, emotional or physical needs.  Each student and their family must agree to abide by the SAC Day rules if they will participate in SAC Day classes.

SAC Day Organization
SAC Day is organized by a board who serves in a voluntary capacity with new board members appointed as the need arises.  The SAC Day Board will set the class schedule and calendar, secure facility usage, interview and approve all tutors, help resolve conflicts between tutors, students, parents and others and plan SAC Day graduation ceremonies with assistance from parents of graduating seniors.

Father-Daughter Dance
HCCH invites everyone to a special evening for fathers and daughters.

This formal/semi-formal dance is open to all fathers and daughters in our community aged Pre-K through 12th grade.  Hosted by HCCH since 2003, the dance has grown in recent years to include over 300 attendees.  The dance is currently held in late winter/early spring at Anhalt Dance Hall.  The dance includes a live DJ, drinks and refreshments.  A photo backdrop will be available to take your special pictures that evening.

In early February, invitations will be sent to previous dance attendees.  HCCH members will receive emailed invitations with an online signup link.  Community members who attended the previous year's dance will receive a mailed paper invitation.  The dance registration form will also be posted here on the website at that time.  Families are encouraged to pre-register for the dance at a reduced price, but door registration is also available.  Each family will be asked to bring a savory or sweet finger-food refreshment with them to the dance.  We also encourage uncles, grandfathers, stepfathers, or any adult role model to accompany a young lady.

  • The HCCH administrative fee is $10 for HCCH members and $20 for non-members per family paid directly to HCCH.  This fee helps cover postage and a donation to the facility.

Teacher Night Out
Teacher's Night Out and Mom's Book Club
HCCH invites all of our teachers to a monthly night out and/or our book club!
Back to Top
Teacher's Night Out is for all HCCH moms to enjoy a special night out!  We work hard all month teaching our children, so it is great to take some much-needed time just for us.  TNOs are held periodically either at a member’s home or at a local restaurant along Hwy 281. Homeschooling discussion topics may be planned, but we also leave plenty of time for general chit-chat and fellowship.  Great for new home schooling moms and veterans too—bring a friend!
 
Mom's Book Club is a group of moms who love to read and enjoy sharing great books with each other!  Our book club meets once per month on a separate evening from the MNO.  We currently meet at the Starbucks in Bulverde to enjoy some beverages and books!  There is an assigned book each month in different genres (fiction or non-fiction).  Books are chosen at the July meeting for the entire school year.  We would love for you to join us!

*Teachers interested in HCCH are welcome to join us at TNO or Book Club anytime.  Contact us at info@myhcch.com to find out about the TNO or Book Club details for that month.
