CMOAH’s goal is to encourage, support, and inform the homeschool community. We also initiate educational and social events and activities for our community. The following guidelines are given so that you understand the expectations of our organization.
Please treat all people and property with respect, consideration, courtesy, and compassion. Please avoid insults, name-calling, and non-verbal communications that are likely to offend, hurt, or set a bad example. If you have qualms with another parent or teacher at an event, it is suggested that you either speak to that person privately or keep your distance and avoid confrontation.
Obey all laws and any rules of buildings, property, or programs out of respect for those entities.
Kindness and empathy should be what we model to our children and our community. Try to recognize, in others, their different strengths and talents so that we all can make our community better. Encourage teamwork when necessary and needed. Be open to the ideas and opinions of others.
Make reasonable efforts to allow participation for all families. Provide a safe environment for all who are participating. Protect those who are being treated unfairly. Make decisions based on impartiality.
Those who choose not to follow the above guidelines could be asked to leave the organization. We expect you to be responsible for any damage you or your child does to any property and that you cover any costs associated with it.
