Community Classes are learning opportunities open to both TLA students and school-aged children from other schools. These classes are less than a full course; whereas a course meets the standards set out by the provincial curriculum such as what TLA currently offers via our Blended and Online systems (ie Online Humanities 8), Community Classes could be as short as a one-day, one-hour long instructional offering on dissecting a cow’s eye, or it could be a weekly writing workshop that lasts for three months.

If you have questions about any of the programs being offered please direct them to Melissa Friesen (mfriesen@schoolathome.ca). Please note that in order for these classes to run there is a minimum number of students required. Each class has a different limit on spaces available so be sure to register early to secure your child’s spot!

TLA Basketball Team (Gr. 8-12) Surrey

If you are a student in grades 8-12 we would love to invite you to come and join our school basketball team. This will be happening in the gym at William of Orange School in Cloverdale. The address is 17465 60 Ave, Surrey.

This class will be taught by TLA Principal Mr. Linder and TLA teacher Mr. Milat.

The team fee will be $80 per player to help cover the costs of the gym rental. If there are any other costs associated with other games or activities, those will be extra.

Payment options:
– If you are in grade 8 or 9 and have room in your budget, you can use your Home budget.
– If you have room in your community class budget, you may use your $150 community class budget. (Every K-12 TLA Online student taking six or more courses with TLA has access to a $150 budget to use toward Community Classes. Community Classes may also be funded out of K-9 DL budgets, or invoiced and paid for out of pocket.)
– we can invoice you and the $80 can be paid out of pocket.

Some bonuses:
– we’ll periodically send out some basketball resources such as links to videos that demonstrate particular skills
– we’ll try to organize a game vs. TLA teachers, and hopefully against other community groups if we can find them
– we’ll try to organize some TLA Armada team t-shirts (possibly small extra cost)
