Now we get down to the nitty-gritty! Before you join EC, you might want to be sure that it's for you. Here are some basics. (When you register for your first semester of EC, you will receive the EC Handbook, with the rules of operation. All of this information is discussed in detail at Orientation, .)
All students are required to come to EC with basic supplies. They are:
Nursery Supplies –Backpack/diaper bag
Diapers, wipes, cup/bottle and change of clothes (LABELED with baby’s name)
Basic Class Kit - 3rd grade and under
Jumbo Glue Stick (or 2 regular glue sticks)
Basic Class Kit - 4th grade -12th
Pencil & Pen
spiral notebook or notebook paper
Our cleaning crew is made up of non-teachers. As a new participant, you will be included in this crew. Here’s how it works:
There are approximately 7 different cleaning jobs that must be performed each Friday after the last class ends (at 2:30). Jobs are divided evenly among the crew. These jobs are very basic and include cleaning classrooms (vacuuming, sweeping, and garbage cans), restrooms (wiping down counters, cleaning mirrors, cleaning floors), and cleaning the gym and entry. Each job takes 30-45 minutes to perform. You will be assigned to clean approximately 5-7 times during the semester.
After registration, the cleaning schedule is made with all assignments. You will know in advance the dates you are scheduled to clean. A walk-through of the cleaning process will take place during Orientation to familiarize all new families.
This is an important part of Enrichment Classes, as we have an agreement with our host church that we will leave the premises clean each Friday afternoon. Please be sure you are able to commit to this before registering for Enrichment Classes.
(You will have the opportunity to teach classes after one full semester with EC; teachers do not work on the cleaning crew.)
Our dress code applies to 4th grade and older (boys, girls, and adults).
We believe modesty is appropriate for this setting, and since we have many people with different views of modesty we will spell out what acceptable for Red River Enrichment Classes. If you bring visitors, please be sure they are aware of these guidelines as well.
1. Shorts, skirts, skorts, and dresses must be no shorter than 4 inches above the knee while sitting.
2. No skin tight clothing, midriffs (tummy showing), see through clothing, tank tops, halters, fish net tops, plunging necklines, underwear showing (bras or otherwise) or clothing that advertises immoral items or acts. If they show, the clothes are not appropriate.
3. No facial piercings or visible tattoos.
Anyone not dressed in accordance with these guidelines will be asked to go home and change.
All participants from 4th grade to adult will be required to sign the Dress Code Agreement before participating in EC.
