We will be having a potluck dinner (last names A-F bring a side dish or salad, last names G-L bring a dessert, and last names M-Z bring a main dish).
CMOAH will supply drinks, plates, cups, utensils, napkins, etc.

After dinner, we’ll separate into AGE GROUPS for age-appropriate games and a gift exchange for each age group
(toddlers-6, 7-11, and 12+).
~Please bring a non-gender specific wrapped gift (valued $10 or less) for the gift exchange and we will provide the crafts.

Finally, we’ll conclude the evening with DANCING for anyone who wants to dance a few of the contra dances from dance class and the COOKIE EXCHANGE
~If you’d like to participate, please bring 4 dozen cookies for your family to exchange. (we’ll put them all out and everyone who brought cookies will go home with a few of each type of cookie)

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

**OH, and in addition, we will have a WHITE ELEPHANT gift exchange for adults only who would like to participate (bring a used item from home—something under $15 value that is still usable—-wrapped and ready for exchange. Yes, gag gifts are acceptable).
Look forward to seeing everyone!!

Notice of Intent to Homeschool Form

Resized_20180717_123719.jpegIn Montana, one of the requirements for homeschooling is to notify your county superintendent of your intent to homeschool (children ages 7-18). If you are in Cascade County, you can use their form or you can write your own letter of intent. The link for the form is below. They also have copies of the document at their office if you do not have a printer.

We suggest you print it, fill it out, bring it into the superintendent’s office located at 121 4th St. North Ste. 1A (Behind the building, where the covered porch entrance is sticking out.), and after they stamp it, ask for a copy so you can show it to businesses who allow for educator discounts. You can mail it, however, please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope so your copy is able to be returned to you.

Many colleges and the military do require confirmation that you followed State Law regarding filing this notice of intent, so you should consider keeping a copy for your child’s records (rather than having to request it from the superintendent).

If you are outside of Cascade County, please contact your county superintendent for more information on how you file your notice of intent there.
