Montana Homeschooling Groups

Due to Montana’s rural-ness, which can make it hard to meet face-to-face, and the desire of families to seek out Montana as a place to live and work, we noticed that many are seeking places online to gauge the homeschool communities or find things to do while traveling through our great state.

One of the things we love about homeschooling during the current technological age is the ability to connect online with others for support, information, encouragement.

Our goal, through CMOAH, is just that. We decided to compile a list of all of the online groups of homeschoolers in Montana. If you happen to know of an online group that isn’t listed on the page below, please email us at cmtoah@gmail.com and we can add it!

Box Tops, Get Your BOX TOPS! (in!)

BTFE

Good news! Erin D. has agreed to be the Box Tops coordinator and she has posted the following:

Box Tops will be phasing out the cut-out-coupons and are now accepting scanned receipts within 14 days of purchase. While this means you need to take a few steps to get set up, it is pretty easy and rewarding to see what has been earned in 24 hours after submission. Please check out the link and sign up to earn the new way! There is also a full list of items that qualify if you scroll down the page.

There will still be prizes for those who turn in the most (clipped and/or scanned-need a screenshot) so make sure to save and send! Her email address is in the newsletter.

Back to School Kickoff!

See those kids in the process of jumping for joy? They are only a fraction of those who attend our annual Back-to-(Home)School Kickoff! This year’s kickoff party is on Friday, August 30th, at 1:00 p.m. More details will be available in our newsletter! (Coming out soon!) If you do not receive our newsletter, please click on the Become a Member link in the menu.

We will have a school supply treasure hunt, games, and upcoming information regarding upcoming events for the 2019-2020 year!

See you there!

Planning for Next Year?

One of the requirements for Homeschooling in Montana is to notify the County School Superintendent of your intentions to homeschool.

You can bring in or mail your own letter or you may use the form below.

If you bring your letter or form in, make sure to get a copy of the stamped letter so you can use it for your own child’s records and for discounts at local stores.

If you are mailing it, we recommend sending a Self-Addressed, Stamped Envelope and a little note (to ask them to please return a stamped copy) with your notification.

The link for the Cascade County Notification form is here. They also have copies at the superintendent’s office.

If you would like us to add other county’s forms, please email us at cmtoah@gmail.com and we can update this post!

PLEASE RSVP with the ages of your kids so we can plan supplies accordingly. You can message here or call/text Adria at 231-5851 if you have questions.

We do need volunteers to arrive a little early for setup and stay a little late for clean up. If you are willing to help, please contact Adria or Coya or email cmtoah@gmail.com.
