What do you mean with filling up? Do we sign up for each session we want to go to beforehand? Or how does that work? Thanks, Friederike

Friederike, we don't know yet how we'll handle the breakouts. Probably you will sign up when you arrive. We can have 50+ people in each, except maybe Swedish drill.

I plan to send out a poll soon!

If you make a poll to ask if Swedish Drill and Nature Study classes should be repeated at 4:00 I would wholeheartedly vote, "Yes!" I would love to attend both. ;)

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! :)

I'm doing overview, music, atmosphere, foreign language. Probably. :)

I second this!! ;-)

Is "Overview" considered separately from the year it is listed with? Meaning, can one go to just the overview part and then another session? I was assuming not, but want to double-check.

The Overview/Years sessions are sort of double sessions. The first part covers an overview of Years 1/2/3 (or 4/5/6, or 7/8/9, or 10/11/12) and then Year 1 (or 4, or 7, or 10). The second part (second hour?) covers Years 2/3 (or 5/6, 8/9, or 11/12). It's set up so you can attend just the first or second part.

I don't know if I'm explaining that very well. It makes perfect sense in my head! [Ha ha ha ha!]

If I were new to AO with a Year 1 student I think I would do these:
1. Parents' Review Article
2. Overview & Years 2 and 3
3. Atmosphere, Discipline & Life (or Reading if was something I struggled with)
4. Foreign Language

Yes, that makes sense. Thank you. Would you be able to go to Nature Study and Year 1, for example? I figure you might miss part of Nature Study...assuming it would run the same amount of time as both the Overview and Year 1 combined. Is that right?

You couldn't do both Year 1 and something else at that timeslot. Overview 1-3 and Year 1 are a unit, one session.
