Round Rock Church of Christ

Wednesday, June 24th, 9am to Friday, June 26th, 4pm

1200 Georgetown St

Round Rock, TX

Arrival


When you arrive, you will find two registration locations: one for registering with children and one for registering without children. Registration begins each day at 8:30 AM. Adults will register upon entry, and children will be registered in their classrooms. (Please note that each of our adult camp leaders has had a background check performed on him/her.) A student roster will be available for each room and will include a place for you to sign in your children upon arrival. This sheet will also be used to sign your children in and out for lunch, and out again at the end of the day. This will assist the camp leaders with attendance, safety, and security of the children. The practicum will begin promptly at 9 AM and conclude at 4 PM each day, so please allow at least 15 minutes or more for registration the first day.

Facility

We are grateful for the Round Rock Church of Christ and the many ways they have opened their doors to us. As a Christian organization, we want to exemplify Christ in our actions by keeping the building clean, not running in the hallways, and being polite and courteous to others. The Round Rock Church of Christ has an open door policy which means we will be asking you to be extra quiet in the halls. Parents, it is imperative that you talk with your children about these rules and watch your children at all times! You will also want to tag important possessions (backpacks, notebooks, etc.) with your child’s first and last name so that we can reunite lost items with their proper owner.


We are delighted that you will be joining us for this 3 Day Parent Practicum and pray that you will leave this time equipped, encouraged, and empowered in your homeschooling and academic endeavors. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your practicum team hostess, Betsy Hindes, at betsyhindes@yahoo.com.


"It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings." Proverbs 25:2
